Are you missing one tooth, several teeth, or all of your teeth? If you wish to restore teeth individually, consider single tooth implants. No other solution will so thoroughly replace your missing tooth like a dental implant, which restores both your roots and your visible crown.
A single tooth implant replaces one complete tooth, from your roots to your crown. You may choose to replace one tooth, two teeth, several teeth, or all of your teeth through this method. Your implant experience will begin with a consultation with Dr. Lathrop. He will use advanced imaging, such as 3D X-rays, for effective case planning. Once he creates a personalized care plan, you will schedule a second visit.
When you return for the procedure, Dr. Lathrop will place the post, which includes the surgical implantation of a titanium post into your jawbone. You will recover over the course of three to four months before returning for your restoration. A restoration is an artificial tooth that replaces the visible portion of your tooth. At Lathrop Dental Center, we offer beautiful, color-customized porcelain crowns, for a gorgeous, natural-looking smile.
You may downplay the significance of a gap in your smile – particularly if you are only missing one tooth. Whether you are missing one tooth or many, selecting a single tooth implant offers a host of benefits. We encourage you to consider the following advantages of this procedure:
Unlike implant-supported dental bridges and dentures that often rely on strategically placed implants to support the entire device, single tooth replacements require a dental implant in each empty space. If you wish to replace each complete tooth individually for the greatest stability, and you have healthy gums and adequate jawbone tissue, you may make an excellent candidate.
