Single Implants at Sunbury, Gisborne & Diggers Rest
What are Single Implants?
Single implants are dental implants that replace a missing tooth and root. In the past, one missing tooth might require a full bridge in which the neighboring teeth are reshaped to act as anchors for the bridge, which will then hold a crown that replaced the tooth. Unfortunately, the bridge only replaces the missing tooth without replacing the tooth root, which can lead to gum and jawbone deterioration.
On the other hand, a single implant consists of a titanium post that will be placed in the jawbone to act as the tooth root. As the bone heals around the implant, it becomes stronger by stimulating bone growth and the body begins to treat it like a normal tooth root. A crown is then placed on the new implant that looks and feels like a natural tooth.
Benefits of Single Implants
Single implants not only look and feel like a real tooth, but they also protect the teeth around it without negatively affecting the gum. In fact, your mouth will remain healthy as your jawbone stays intact and keeps your other teeth secure for years. The following are more benefits of single dental implants:
