Single Tooth Implant
A good set of teeth is often taken for granted. However, it is important to take good care of them, as numerous issues can arise if you have poor dental health. Tooth loss is common among many people, largely due to various reasons. These include aging, diseases, and injury. Unlike bridges and dentures, which were the preferred treatment options for tooth loss for many years, tooth implant revolutionizes oral care and is a popular choice among many patients.
There are many benefits a tooth implant has over traditional methods, and also other benefits are imparted, as well. An implant behaves just like how a normal tooth would. They do not affect your sense of taste, do not need periodic removal for cleaning, and do not affect chewing or speaking. In fact, they can keep neighboring teeth stable, help prevent gum disease and premature facial aging, and last for your entire life.
On top of all of that, a set of healthy teeth will improve your appearance, speech, comfort, and self-esteem. If you are suffering from tooth loss, please do not hesitate to contact us at Dallas Oral Surgery Associates, and our professionals will help you restore your oral health.
Everyone is different, so our team will work with you to come up with a personalized plan that suits you the best. First, we should make sure that your body is capable of handling a tooth implant. We will check for the health of the gums and bones. Regular dental visits and good oral hygiene practices are needed to keep the implant and your teeth healthy. For the majority, there should not be any problems; however, if you have a chronic disorder or a history of smoking, then we will need to perform an in-depth analysis of your situation.
A single tooth implant is a relatively minor procedure and will usually only require local anesthesia. Next, a titanium fixture, the tooth root, will replace the missing tooth. The jawbone will eventually secure the root in the jaw. Afterward, an abutment, a small connector, will be attached to the root to hold the implant. That new tooth will be customized based on your bite, oral structure, and tooth color.
After the operation, the healing and recovery time can range anywhere from three to six months. Many patients have only reported mild pain and soreness in the mouth. In general, a single tooth implant has a 98% success rate.
The cost of a single tooth dental implant tends to vary a lot by your individual case. Many factors such as insurance plans and how complicated the treatment will be all add to the final cost. The cost of a single tooth implant will include office visits, pre and post oral care.
