Single Tooth Replacement
SINGLE TOOTH MISSINGBenefits of an all-ceramic crown on implant: When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
In this case, a so-called one-piece implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single unit, resulting in immediately full functioning teeth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.
1. Immediately functioning teeth
2. Excellent esthetic result
3. Life long, stable solution
Treatment: This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.
COURSE OF TREATMENT - INSTALLING THE NEW TOOTH – STEP-BY-STEPThe course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.
1: Before the procedure - The dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.
2: Installing the implant - The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you 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 permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional treatment is needed.
4: End result - You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean.
