Single Tooth Implant
What exactly is a single tooth implant? Just as the name implies, a single tooth implant replaces a single missing tooth. The best thing about implants is that they replace the tooth root as well. Due to this feature, they easily become a part of the body.
The Main Procedure
As in all cases of dental intervention, the first step is consulting a dentist.
✓ After a thorough examination of the patient’s teeth and gums, the dentist will decide whether implants are a good choice for that particular case
✓ If yes, the dentist will drill a hole in the jawbone and insert a titanium post into the gum
✓ The next step will follow in 3 to 6 months, when the jawbone around the post is fully healed
✓ After a making sure that the jawbone has healed and grown, the dentist will attach the abutment to the post
✓ Finally, measurements for a crown will be taken, and the crown itself will be placed over the abutment
