Single tooth implant procedure

The single implant is surgically placed into the jawbone where the original missing or damaged tooth used to be. In the first stage after placing the implant the specialist will put a temporary prosthetic piece to protect the area, this will help the patient to maintain regular activities like eating and drinking. After one to six months once the dental implant has fused with the jawbone the dental specialist will attach a customized crown that will replace the temporary prosthetic, matching the crown to the specific shape and color of the remaining teeth.

The American Academy for Dental Implants suggests a dental implant it’s the best procedure to maintain a strong and stable jawbone, replacing the functionality and appearance of the natural tooth allowing the bone to keep its strong densities and shape, making it the most recommended dental procedure for tooth replacement.
