If you are missing one tooth, a single tooth dental implant may be used to replace your missing tooth. Dental implants are one of the most successful tooth replacement options that dentistry has to the offer. Dental implants help stimulate bone regeneration while providing a long lasting, natural looking solution for missing teeth.
At Sudbury Dental Arts, Dr. Kerri Bourgeois offers a full range of tooth replacement options, including dental implants. Dr. B will work with you to determine if a dental implant is right for you. To explore your tooth replacement options, visit Sudbury Dental Arts in Sudbury, MA.
Single Tooth Dental Implant in Sudbury, MA
- The Implant- The implant is a small, titanium screw that is surgically attached to the jawbone.
During osseointegration, the dental implant post will fuse with the jawbone. Dental implants are designed to mimic the natural tooth root, therefore creating a stable, healthy foundation used to support your final restoration.
- The Abutment- It typically takes 3-6 months for the post to fully integrate with the jawbone. Once the post has fused with the jawbone, an abutment is attached. The abutment is the connector that secures the final restoration to the implant post.
- Restoration- At Sudbury Dental Arts, we create custom designed restoration to meet your cosmetic and restorative needs. Depending on the location and number of missing teeth, dental implants may be used to secure a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture.
