Single Tooth Replacement

What is Single Tooth Replacement?

Single tooth replacement is a surgical procedure performed to replace missing teeth with an artificial module that looks and function like a natural teeth. At MSR dentistry, we provide single tooth replacement treatment services using single piece dental implants. The procedure involves inserting dental implants in the jaw tissues that acts and functions as a natural root and the missed tooth is replaced with an artificial crown. The dentist evaluates the condition and recommends the best suited treatment options.

Can you replace a single tooth? Can you replace missing teeth?

Yes, Of course! Single tooth replacement is the most common treatment options at the present era. The method rules out the traditional method of tooth replacement using tooth supported bridge in which the adjacent teeth are trimmed into hanger shapes to fit the cemented bridge in position. Single tooth replacement eliminates this process and remains unaffected to the adjacent teeth. Single tooth replacement provides a better aesthetic appearance and functional with a lifelong warranty.

Single Tooth Replacement Procedure

The dentist examines the oral cavity and takes an x-ray and prepares the area for the procedure. Using special drills and tools, a dental implant in inserted into the location and allowed to heal. During the healing period, the dental implants and the jaw tissues fuse together to form a solid foundation for the dental crown.

Next, an extension is attached to the screw, and a custom made crown is fixed. Extension added single tooth replacements are available and the dentist discusses the best suitable options with the patient before the treatment.  A customized crown is then fixed to the screw and extension. The crown is fabricated from the lab using the CAD/CAM technology after obtaining the impression. This helps us to craft the most matching shade of crown that appears as a natural tooth. After the single tooth replacement procedure, follow-ups are required to remove any hard deposits around the dental implant and a regular cleaning routine helps to avoid any risk of infection or plaque.
