Single Tooth Implants
Single Tooth Implants
Losing a single tooth is a common problem, and most people, if the tooth is in their smile line will want to get it replaced as soon as possible. However, it’s important to replace any tooth that is missing as its loss can affect your overall dental health. Each tooth supports and protects other teeth. Single Tooth Implants (Traditional Dental Implant) in Brooklyn When you lose a tooth, the teeth adjacent to the gap will soon begin to drift toward this space, destabilizing these teeth, and it can affect your bite.

Why Choose a Single Tooth Implant?

Traditional options include partial dentures and dental bridges, but a single tooth implant is the gold standard treatment. Single tooth implants are self-supporting and provide significant support and protection for the adjacent teeth. The procedure to plan and place single tooth implants is relatively quick and non-invasive.

Other alternative options:

  • Partial dentures are supported by clasps around your existing natural teeth and which can weaken these teeth, potentially causing problems or even their loss in the future. Also, partial dentures cannot provide a similar biting or chewing strength compared with natural teeth or implant teeth.
  • Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth that must be substantially ground down and reshaped so they can be crowned. The crowns are attached to the replacement tooth or pontic, creating a strong and stable prosthesis. However, you will find any dentist is reluctant to reshape healthy teeth because removing any healthy tooth structure increases the risk of tooth decay and infection in these teeth in the future.

Who Is Suitable for a Single Tooth Implant?

Single tooth implants are suitable for anyone with reasonable dental and general health, and whose teeth and jaws have finished growing and developing.

You cannot have any signs of active periodontal disease or other dental problems, and certain medical conditions may increase the risk of implant failure.
