Implant Procedure for Missing One Tooth

View Photos
single dental implant by Dr. Ramsey Amin, DDSA single implant is a very common and daily procedure in our practice. A dental implant can replace any tooth in the mouth.

When either the tooth and root are damaged or a tooth is about to be lost, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with crown. An implant looks and functions just like a natural tooth. A dental implant to replace one missing tooth is the most natural, cost-effective, least-invasive and long-term tooth replacement.

General Description of Treatment:

This procedure normally includes one to four visits. Depending on the location of the tooth, (i.e. a front tooth), a dental implant and crown can be done in one hour with Dr. Amin’s special technique. This is called an immediate implant… you leave the office with a tooth now, not in six months. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant placed. Here is a more detailed description of this single missing tooth using a dental implant procedure:

COURSE OF TREATMENT: SINGLE-TOOTH IMPLANT – STEP-BY-STEP

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult our office to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

1: Before the procedure:
An examination and one or more x-rays of the area are made to prepare for the procedure and diagnose your unique situation. The area will be checked carefully for any signs of bone or gum loss.

2: Placing the implant and abutment:
The implant is placed. At this time, a temporary tooth is always provided for front teeth that allow you to eat and function like normal, almost immediately. The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.

3: Attaching the new crown:
The final step is the placement of the final ceramic tooth. The crown is cemented or screwed in place.

End result: You should expect the new tooth to feel, fit, and function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gums around it clean and healthy.
