Single Tooth Implants Raleigh When any tooth is lost it can be an emotional experience for anyone. After a back tooth is lost patients can find it difficult to chew certain foods. Fortunately, a dental implant can replace a missing tooth, often with the same look and feel as a natural tooth.

Dental implants are the treatment of choice to replace missing or non-restorable teeth. Dental implants consist of a small post made of titanium that is placed in the jaw bone where the tooth is missing. The titanium post will actually bond to the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration. After healing has occurred, an abutment is screwed into the implant and a crown is placed onto the abutment. The completed Implant, Abutment, & Crown provide our patients with a natural looking tooth.

Conditions requiring treatment: Dental implants are required when teeth are missing or cannot be predictably saved with traditional dental techniques. Often if root canal treatment has failed or if a tooth has fractured beyond repair a dental implant is indicated. Dental implants can also be used to replace multiple missing teeth in the forms of bridges, attachment to dentures, and implant supported full reconstruction.

Treatment: Placement of a dental implant consists of a minor surgery where a titanium post is placed into the jaw bone where your tooth is missing. In some cases a temporary tooth can be placed on the implant immediately after surgery. After a short healing time a final abutment and crown will be fabricated to complete the process.
