If you are missing just one tooth, Dr. Safina LeClair may recommend an individual dental implant to replace that tooth and give you back a healthy smile.

When Are Single-Tooth Dental Implants Recommended?

Single-tooth dental implants are recommended under various circumstances to restore dental health and improve the overall quality of life for patients. Some of the scenarios in which our dentist may recommend a single-tooth implant include:

  • A single missing tooth – When a single tooth is lost due to injury, decay or other dental issues, an implant can fill the gap left behind seamlessly. Implants provide stability and prevent adjacent teeth from shifting, ensuring proper alignment and maintaining a harmonious bite.
  • Preservation of your bone structure – Even a single missing tooth can lead to a deterioration of your supporting bone. Implant stimulate the jawbone just like natural tooth roots. This stimulation is crucial to preventing bone loss and promoting long-term oral health and function.
  • Enhanced functionality – An individual implant restores not only the aesthetics of a smile but also the functionality. Chewing, speaking and biting are improved, enabling you the enjoy your favorite foods without limitations.
  • A long-lasting and durable solution – Implants are known for their exceptional longevity. With proper care and maintenance (i.e., maintaining good oral hygiene and keeping all your regular dental visits), they can last a lifetime, making implants a reliable and cost-effective long-term solution.
  • Avoiding compromising adjacent teeth – Single-tooth implants do not require altering the neighboring teeth for support. This prevents unnecessary damage and preserve the natural structure of your adjacent teeth.
