Single Implants

A single implant is used to replace one permanent missing tooth. An implant consists of the implant body itself, an abutment and an implant retained crown. In order for an implant to be placed, a Cone Beam CT must be taken to determine bone levels and location of vital anatomical structures. Once this happens, the implant placement is carefully planned and placed. The implant is covered with a healing cap to allow for healing and osseointegration of the implant. After approximately 3 to 6 months, the implant is uncovered and the abutment and final crown is placed. An implant is a fantastic restoration for replacing one or more teeth, without having to rely on adjacent teeth for support.
