The benefits of having a single tooth Implant

Wednesday, November 16, 2016 Chris Wood

If you have lost a tooth due to a sports injury, oral health complications or gum disease, a single tooth implant could be the best solution for you. The implant is designed to replace a missing tooth and its root, providing the most natural appearance and function of all tooth replacement methods.

Advantages of single tooth implants

The main advantage of opting for a single tooth implant is that it does not impact on any of your neighbouring teeth, ensuring their wellbeing is maintained. As the implant replaces both the natural tooth and the root, it also allows for the bone in the gums to be better preserved. The implant integrates with the jawbone, keeping the bone intact and ultimately healthier.

When a natural tooth is missing, it can lead to tipped, overcrowded, further tooth loss or the loss of chewing function; resulting in an array of further problems. A single tooth implant will restore the mouth’s natural function and increase oral comfort. Because the implant replicates your natural missing tooth, aesthetically you will not be able to tell the difference, providing you with the confidence you need to be able to smile again.

A single tooth implant is permanently fixed into place in the mouth and it can be cared for in the same way as your other remaining teeth; with thorough brushing and cleaning the spaces between your teeth. The single tooth implant is kept in place with a stable foundation, allowing for natural comfort whilst eating and speaking.

Dental implant procedures are renowned for their success and longevity. Having a single tooth implant could not only help to increase your confidence from an aesthetic point of view, it could also be the key to improving your overall oral health. Individual teeth implants can restore the mouth’s natural function, previously hindered missing a tooth.
