Single Tooth Dental Implants

If you have a single missing tooth, we can give you an implant and a crown to replace it. The dental implant will replace both the missing natural tooth and the root of the tooth. We perform multiple teeth replacement using a combination of dental implants and bridges as well.

Implant-supported dental bridges

The implant-supported bridge is similar to the standard dental bridge except that it is supported by implants and not by natural teeth. Compared to conventional bridges, implant-supported bridges deliver a range of advantages. Since they do not rely on the surrounding teeth for support, these do not require any alteration of your natural teeth structure. The adjacent teeth will remain intact and healthy and will not be exposed to the strain to support the bridge, which can weaken natural teeth eventually.

Single Tooth Replacement Process With Implants

Dental implants stop bone loss and healthy teeth are not damaged.

A missing tooth can be replaced by a dental implant without altering the healthy adjacent teeth. Once the implant is placed, a post is attached providing support for your final crown.

Frequently Asked Questions on Single Dental Implants and Bridges

Who can go for single tooth implants?

Anyone above the age of 18 and having a missing tooth is candidates for single tooth implants. You can visit our dental office and get your consultation done to check whether you are a right candidate for implants. Dr. Adatrow and our dental team will guide in getting the best possible treatment. smoke suffer from bone loss problems may not be good candidates for dental implants. Dr. Adatrow will provide you professional guidance for choosing the ideal treatment.

Will each missing tooth need to be replaced?

Yes, almost all the missing teeth need to be replaced to maintain your jaw shape and structure. You have to replace your missing teeth; otherwise, the integrity of your jaw will be lost. There will be bone loss, and the adjacent teeth will start moving towards the space of the missing tooth.

Are my implants removable?

No, your implants are not removable. Just like your natural teeth, they are well anchored into your jawbone. So, you cannot remove them. This makes them functionally similar to natural teeth.

Will my implant teeth function, feel, and look like my natural tooth?

Yes, your implant teeth will mimic your natural teeth in functionality and looks. Our dental team will make sure that they match the implant teeth to your adjacent natural teeth so that no one (maybe except for another dentist) would be able to make out the difference. As implants are well anchored into the jawbone, their functionality and feel are very close to natural teeth.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a dental appliance to bridge the gap caused by your missing teeth. The missing tooth (pontic) is replaced by taking support from adjacent teeth on either side of the gap. As the structure of this appliance resembles a bridge, it is called a dental bridge.
With the help of CT scans and X-rays, Dr. Adatrow will know if you have adequate jawbone support. He can pinpoint where to place the dental implant. Once these things have been finalized, you and the doctor can now decide on the date of the procedure.

Can I get crowns on the same day of implant placement?

With the recent advancements, it is possible to provide you with crowns immediately after dental implant placement. However, Dr. Adatrow does not recommend immediate crown placement (same-day tooth replacement) after dental implants unless totally necessary and provided; there is a minimum risk of failure. Immediate crowns can cause premature loading of implants. This would interfere with the fusion of implants to jawbone and leads to implant failure. Dr. Adatrow will assess all the factors before deciding whether same-day tooth replacement is an ideal option for you. For the dental implants to be successful, try not to put too much force or pressure on the implant site. Do not apply too much stress while healing. Also, strictly follow your dental appointments. Follow-ups are a must!
Visiting your dentist should not stop after the surgery is done. Schedule periodical checks with Dr. Adatrow to see if any infections are hampering the healing process. He will check if the implant has fused with the surrounding bone to assess the success of the surgery.

Can I be put to sleep when undergoing dental implant surgery?

Absolutely! Since implant placement is a surgical procedure, we would recommend you get implant placement under sedation. Sedation helps in making the process less painful, decreases your anxiety, and increases the success of the treatment.
