Single Tooth Implants

For replacement of one missing tooth, Dental Implants have become the more likely treatment option in dentistry.  The single tooth implant offers less gum health, tooth structural, occlusal and aesthetic risk in comparison to other options such as dental bridges or dentures.

Indicative Cost of Single Dental Implant: $ 5,200

Following the removal of a tooth, the bone in the area will begin to disappear.  For this reason alone, it is important that should Dental Implant Treatment options be considered, they be performed to an optimum time frame.  Should a delay of longer than 6 months be present where the tooth is removed and not replaced, then the likelihood of Dental Bone Grafting is increased.

The first stage after the tooth is removed, is the placement of the single dental implant.  This is performed under local anaesthetic just like having a filling done at the dentist.  There is minimal discomfort which is minimised by following the recommended followup regime.  Instructions can be found here.

Instantly, or after a delay of several months, the visible tooth is installed onto the tooth implant.  

In the case of single tooth implants in the front of the mouth, it is important to consider brisbane tooth whitening prior to creation of the crown.

Treatment for the single tooth implant takes usually between three and six months in total, and treatment is usually completed in three appointments of one hour duration.

Case Example,

This missing tooth was reconstructed with a Single Dental Implant.  Teeth Whitening of the other teeth was performed.  The Dental Implant was restored with a Porcelain Corwn on a Zirconia Abutment and the adjacent tooth had a Porcelain Crown.  The Porcelain Crowns were constructed using the highly aesthetic Emax Porcelain.  A beautiful Smile Makeover incorporating a Single Dental Implant.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
