Dental implants are an incredible tool for replacing missing tooth material. They allow you to eat and speak normally while also helping to maintain your facial structure. Learn some of the things you need to know before getting a single implant.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Single Tooth Implants?

Dental implant patients need:

  • Healthy Gums

  • Sufficient Jawbone

If you do not qualify for an implant, we will discuss treatment options with you. In some cases, we may be able to provide treatment that mitigates the issue, such as bone grafting. In other situations, we may recommend an alternative, like dentures.

We offer several treatments designed to help you replace missing tooth material. As the name suggests, single tooth implants are designed for people who need to replace a single tooth.

Depending on the amount of tooth loss you’ve experienced, you may be a better candidate for multiple dental implants or All-on-4®.

What to Expect When You Have an Implant

Dental implants function much like your natural teeth. In fact, they’re almost as strong as your natural teeth, which means they should require minimal changes to your diet. We do warn against chewing on ice, but this is also bad for your natural teeth.
