Single Dental Implants are gaining immense popularity as the permanent replacement option for missing tooth structures. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots placed in the jawbone and gum tissue by performing a minor surgical procedure. They are usually nickel-titanium and act as the roots for artificial teeth. An artificial crown is placed over the implant, giving it a natural appearance.

Replacement of a Missing Tooth with a Single Implant

The bone can be preserved better by the use of a dental implant. A single implant is all that is required to replace a single missing natural tooth. It can replace the missing tooth without sacrificing the adjacent tooth structure, which is the case with dental bridges. It is aesthetically attractive and effortless to clean.

The dental implant is placed in the jawbone of a missing tooth. It integrates with the adjacent bone structure and keeps it healthy and intact. After about three months, when the osseointegration is completed, a porcelain crown is attached to the implant. The crown is fabricated so that it gives a natural look to the tooth.

Replacement of Two Missing Teeth with a Single Implant

In some patients, there are two consecutive missing teeth. In such cases, a single implant can easily replace the two missing teeth. A single implant is placed in the jawbone, and after osseointegration, two crowns are placed over it to fill the gap. But, if the missing teeth are not next to one another, then a single implant cannot be used.

A single dental implant to replace multiple teeth is usually recommended when the jawbone does not have sufficient mass to support multiple implants. If the bone mass is not consistent across the jawbone, then a single implant can be used to replace two consecutive missing teeth.
