Am I a Candidate for Single-Tooth Implants?

We can replace any tooth in your smile. Whether you’re missing a front tooth or a molar, our dental implant dentists will tailor your treatment plan to meet your exact needs. To be a candidate for the dental implant procedure, you’ll need sufficient bone density in your jaw so we can place the titanium post. However, even patients with jaw deterioration may become eligible for a single-tooth implant after getting a bone graft.

What are the Advantages of a Single-Tooth Implant?

If you’re only missing one tooth, it hardly seems worth it to get a partial denture. However, a single-tooth implant will help hold space in your jaw so other teeth don’t start to drift toward the empty socket. Likewise, a dental implant will help prevent bone loss in the jaw.

Another advantage of getting a dental implant is that it allows you to replace a missing tooth without removing healthy enamel from adjacent teeth. For example, the dental bridge procedure sometimes requires us to file down and shape the healthy teeth on both sides of the empty socket so they’re ready to receive crowns. In comparison, dental implant surgery is much less invasive.
