For patients who require a single tooth Implant, a single titanium fixture can be inserted during a minimally invasive procedure. Once the site has healed, a fixed artificial tooth (implant crown and abutment) can be attached to the surgically placed fixture to restore your dentition and improve improve normal function.
Implants act and function just like your natural teeth by mimicking the root of your lost tooth. Once restored with a crown they provide a whole host of benefits including:
- Prevention of damage to adjacent teeth
- They appear “life like” and only you and the dentist will know the difference
- Preserve bone – dental implants protect your jaw from further residual bone loss
- Maintenance just like regular teeth, brush and floss as usual.
