Single tooth implants are suitable where damage is isolated to only one tooth and it is preferred to retain the surrounding natural teeth where possible.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a fixed tooth replacement option. It is a permanent solution which replicates your natural teeth. The implant consists of a rod, made from titanium, that is inserted into one of your jaw bones. It is integrated with your natural bone structure and a prosthetic tooth, Crown or Bridge is placed on top. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a single tooth dental implant will replace the root, helping to preserve the surrounding bone.
