Single Tooth Implants – Same Day Implants
How are dental implants used to replace a single tooth?
A single tooth implant (also known as a dental implant) can be used to restore the normal tooth root if you are missing one tooth. After that, an abutment would be used to attach an artificial tooth – a crown – on top.
The Steps of the Dental Implant Procedure
Since these operations are so straightforward, they are typically carried out in the office under local anesthesia (Lidocaine). The first step is to drill a direct channel in the jawbone through which the implant can be securely threaded. If the crown cannot be inserted the next day due to bone volume and consistency, the implant will be left undisturbed for two to four months. The surrounding bone repairs closely to the implant’s surface during this initial healing process, providing solid protection. Osseo-integration, which simply means “bone attachment,” is the name given to this healing mechanism.
During this time, the implant is usually covered with a protective cover, and the patient is only vaguely conscious of its existence. You will usually cover the spot with your current denture, a temporary crown, or a bridge until it heals. The restorative process will continue until the implant is securely connected to the bone. The implant would then be fitted with an abutment to which teeth will be added. At this stage, the fitting crown will be fabricated and added to the implant and abutment.

Can I get just one dental implant?
A single implant and crown can be used to restore a single broken tooth. A dental implant removes both the tooth and the base of a missing natural tooth.
Can a single tooth implant be done in one day?
The Teeth in One Day technique is special in that it requires you to obtain temporary, fully functioning teeth on the same day as your dental implants. These temporary teeth will stay in place until your custom-made permanent teeth are ready. Checkout Dental Implants Brisbane for more.
What is the cheapest way to replace a missing tooth?
Dentures are the most cost-effective tooth replacement choice. This is due to the fact that they take the least amount of time to make. There is no need for surgery or dental crowns. An picture of the mouth is taken instead, along with measurements.
