Are you missing a single tooth? If so, it might be a constant embarrassment to you. A single tooth implant has benefits over other methods like bridges. It looks natural, like a real tooth. It also works as a real tooth and you don’t have to worry about the health of surrounding teeth. It is easier to clean than a bridge.
The dentist will add the implant into the jaw. The dentist will let the implant and the bone bond together, which could take between two and six months. In the meantime, the dentist will place a temporary healing cap over the implant. After it heals, a crown or a replacement tooth will be added. Different systems and options are available, and the dentist will go over all of your options with you.
