No matter the reason you are missing teeth, it can cause problems with the way you feel about your smile. This is especially true if you are missing a tooth in the front of your smile. Fortunately, there is a solution your dentist can offer you. With Single Dental Implants, your tooth can be replaced no matter where you have one missing so your smile can be complete.
To place Single Dental Implants, the dentist will need to administer a local anesthetic. This helps to ensure you are fully numb in the area being worked on. Once you are numb, the dentist will place your anchor. The anchor is made of titanium because this is the only metal that can bond with bone tissue. Bonding is crucial for the placement of dental implants. If the metal anchor has not properly bonded, your implant will not stay in position and it will not provide you with normal function.
The process for bonding to be completed normally takes from three to six months. The period of time it will take will depend on your age and health. The younger and healthier you are, the faster this process will be done. Once full bonding has been accomplished, it will be time to receive your new tooth.
The artificial tooth is made to look just like your own natural teeth. It is also specially coloured so it blends in well with your surrounding teeth. The tooth fits perfectly over the metal anchor, completely covering it. This ensures you have a natural look that will not be noticeable.
If you properly care for your implant, it can last a lifetime. Most people who experience damage do so because they do not follow their dentist’s instructions. Taking care of your new dental appliance will keep your smile looking beautiful.
