Single Tooth Implant
When it comes to replacing a single missing tooth, a dental implant is the superior solution. With the ability to replace the tooth root as well as the tooth itself, a dental implant is the best option for recreating a natural tooth. In fact, replacing your single tooth with a dental implant can even protect your surrounding teeth and improve the comfort and longevity of your smile. Even if the missing tooth is located in the back of your mouth, it is important to replace it with a dental implant to avoid setbacks to your oral health.

After carefully considering your candidacy for a dental implant, we can develop a customized treatment plan to rebuild your smile.
A dental implant is surgically placed into your jawbone so that it can anchor a custom crown once it has healed. For most patients, the dental implant is indistinguishable in from their natural teeth, this includes the way it feels, functions and looks. Best of all, your dental implant will carry an exemplary success rate as a permanent single tooth replacement solution.
What to Expect When Getting a Dental Implant?
At Sunrise Dental and Implant Center, we are happy to walk you through the process of a getting a single dental implant. While implant dentistry requires a notable investment of time and money upfront, the long-term advantages are quite valuable.
During dental implant surgery, a titanium (biocompatible) post is placed into your jawbone to act as your artificial tooth root. Dental implants require healthy jaw bone structure to be successful. Therefore, some patients may need a bone grafting procedure prior to getting their single tooth implant. Once the implant heals and fully fuses to the surrounding bone, an abutment piece is attached to the implant above the gum line to hold the implant restoration (your prosthetic tooth). In cases of a single tooth implant, this will be a beautiful custom dental crown.
