Are you missing a single tooth? If so, a single tooth implant near you may be an option, and Tarpon Shores Dental is ready to assist you. Our dental implants look and perform like a natural tooth and can last a lifetime.
A single tooth implant procedure starts with a dental implant placed into the jawbone. Once it is placed, it will fuse with the bone, which takes several months. It acts as an artificial tooth root for the missing tooth.
The missing tooth can be replaced without affecting the surrounding teeth. When the dental implant integrates with your jawbone, the bone remains healthy and surrounding teeth are stable.
The first step is placing the implant, which looks like a screw. It is placed into your jaw. It should take anywhere from two to six months for the implant and bone to fuse.
As the implant fuses to your bone, this creates a strong anchor. A temporary tooth may be placed during this time.
Then an extension is added, and a crown will be attached for a realistic, natural look that’s as long lasting as it is attractive.
