Restore Your Smile With Single Dental Implants

You’re tired of wearing dentures or being conscious about your missing tooth and want to get your own teeth back.
Imagine having a full set of natural-looking teeth that look and feel just like the real thing. Single implants are designed to replace the tooth root and look and function just like a natural tooth. With a high success rate, a single implant serves as a solid foundation for a crown without damaging or getting support from the neighbouring teeth.
And since implants are made of titanium, they are safe for the human body.

South Lake Smiles offers single dental implants in South Lake and nearby areas with our experienced team of dental professionals who will help restore your smile.

The Benefits of Single Implants

A single tooth implant has various advantages over alternative tooth replacement options. Most dentists recommend single implants when missing one tooth due to extensive tooth decay or following a tooth extraction. The goal is to protect your adjacent teeth, preserve your bone, and replace the tooth.

1.) Do not rely on the other teeth

When compared to other methods, the main advantage of a single dental implant is that it is surgically placed into the jawbone, meaning it does not rely on surrounding teeth for support.
Single implants can be inserted without harming the adjacent teeth. This means you’ll have a restored, great smile without damaging your other teeth.

2.) Maintain your oral health

When compared to alternative dental restorations, a single implant is less prone to causing gum recession, is easier to clean, and has a more natural appearance. You can simply brush your tooth replacement, around your implant, just like you would do with your natural teeth to keep them clean.

3.) It prevents the jawbone

When a tooth is extracted or removed, the jawbone stops simulating because it is no longer supporting the tooth root and begins to weaken.This may result in bone loss. Because a single-tooth implant replaces both the tooth and the root, the bone surrounding it is better preserved. Single-tooth implants integrate into your jawline, keeping your bone healthy and functional, which improves your overall oral health.

4.) Reduce your chances of developing tooth decay and cavities

We use synthetic materials for your dental implants, which are completely cavity-resistant. To prevent cavities and keep your gums healthy, brush your implant like any other tooth.

5.) It prevents further damage

If you don’t replace a lost tooth, the remaining teeth may shift, leaving you with crooked or unevenly spaced teeth. This is not only unattractive, but it can also cause chewing and biting difficulties. A single tooth dental implant can help maintain the structure of your jaw and mouth, as well as improve your oral health and appearance.

6.) Improve your appearance

The teeth also play an important role in your facial structure. Your mouth and cheeks might sink, shrink, or sag if you don’t have support from your teeth, which is known as facial collapse. This is due to bone loss, which occurs if tooth loss does not receive a replacement.
A single tooth implant prevents this problem. It is designed to look and feel like your natural teeth. They act like natural tooth roots because they are implanted into the jawbone.

Frequently Asked Questions About Single Dental Implants

Single implants are used to permanently replace a missing tooth.

To minimise further complications, even a single missing tooth must be replaced, and an implant post is usually the best option since it prevents bone loss and ensures that existing teeth do not slide out of place. Because the implant is inserted into the jawbone surgically to support a new tooth, unlike a dental bridge, it is not necessary to grind down the adjacent teeth.

The time it takes to place dental implants depends on the techniques used by your dentist and the location of the tooth, but it usually takes around an hour to two hours per implant.

After the osseointegration (or the process of connection between the implant and the surrounding bone tissue), which may take three to nine months, your dentist will begin making the crown to be placed over the implant post.

Dental implants are generally safe procedures performed by dentists to replace a tooth root and act as a solid foundation for a crown, dentures, or dental bridge. Studies show over the last ten years, the success rate of implants has been reported to be between 90% and 95%.

On average, it takes approximately four to six months to heal a dental implant. This gives the patient time to heal completely before the placement of the crown.

This type of restorative dentistry treatment usually requires several steps. There is more than one healing stage, the length of time it takes to heal will be determined by several factors. including the number of teeth to be replaced, the success of osseointegration, the patient’s health, and other considerations.

Although most restorative procedures require sufficient bone structure to be an ideal candidate and ensure the success of the treatment, you may still consider dental implants even if you have weakened or insufficient bone.

There are a few options, and which one you choose will be determined by the amount of bone loss you have and the location of the dental implants. A bone graft or a zygomatic dental implant will be required for dental implants with extensive bone loss. The dentist will recommend the best technique to ensure the effectiveness of the implant and your safety.

While the implant process is considered to be safe, it is still a surgical operation. The same risks apply to all surgical procedures. While the risk of infection or rejection is present, the number of patients who experience issues after implant surgery is very small.

The actual cost of a dental implant may still vary depending on the type of implant, the location of the implant site, the dental office, and etc. It is difficult to discuss the estimate of cost without a proper assessment of the patient. However, according to the annual survey of the Australian Dental Association, the average cost of a dental implant in Western Australia may range between $3,903 and $4,938.68.
