Single Tooth Dental Implant

Dental implants are an excellent way to replace a missing tooth, and they come in various sizes. When choosing an implant size, it is always best to select the largest size for molars since they do most of the work during chewing. Single tooth implants may be manufactured precisely using computer aided design software and dental CT scanner technology. This ensures that the implant is the appropriate size for the tooth being replaced. Single tooth implants are a fantastic way to rebuild your smile while also keeping your other teeth healthy and whole.

Healing Time for a Dental Implant

The time between the surgical implant installation and final crown placement on the lower jaw is generally shorter than it is on the upper jaw. This is due to denser bone in the lower jaw, which allows for more rapid osseointegration (fusing) of the bone with the implant's outer surface. As compared to a prosthetic restoration on an upper back tooth, lower prosthetic restorations may be completed in less than 10 weeks from surgical implant placement.

Single Dental Implant Process

If a tooth is being replaced with a single root and is free of disease, a "one-stage" technique may be used for implant placement. This method entails removing the teeth and implanting prostheses during the same visit. Molars, on the other hand, usually have at least two roots and need to undergo a "two-phase" therapy regimen. The first stage involves extracting remaining roots and bone transplantation before allowing it to recover for 12 weeks.
