Single Tooth Replacement

The Perfect Solution for your Missing Tooth Problem

Do you have a missing tooth that you badly want to be replaced with a kind of prosthesis that not only looks good but will provide the best functionality as if you still have all your natural teeth?  Implant replacement might be just the right treatment for you.

Implant treatment is the leading choice for teeth replacement today.  It would take a simple procedure to be done by a dental professional wherein an implant is placed directly to the bone to act as the root of a tooth, thereby stimulating bone growth as well as acting as a base for the abutments to be attached.

Here are the easy steps that would entail for the replacement of a missing tooth with a dental implant:

Discussion with your dental team

This is an important first step since data about you is needed so that the entire team could make a detailed plan of treatment suitable to your specific needs.  Queries should be asked at this time so you will be confident with the procedure that will follow.

Placement of the Implant

Through surgery, a dental implant is placed.  The purpose of this is to have an instrument that will act as a root and assimilate with the bone and gum tissue, ensuring that it is completely fixated.  The implant will also do the function of stimulating bone cells, which would result in a progression of growth necessary for good bone health. Surrounding teeth and gum area will not be compromised.

Fastening the Abutment

After the completion of the previous implant placement, the next step is to affix the abutment.  Once this is done, measurements will proceed using the placement of the abutment as a benchmark.  The abutment will hold, and act as the connector between the implant and the final prosthesis, your brand new crown.

Attachment of a New Tooth

The final step is the attachment of your prosthesis, a crown – or new tooth – over the now durable abutment.  The right fit will be determined by a dental professional who will also check the overall function of your new, durable, and natural-looking tooth!

Follow-up visits will be necessary to make sure that the final prosthesis maintains optimal function.  The frequency of these visits will depend on your specific needs and upon the discretion of your dental health team.

The remarkable results of implant tooth replacement are testified by thousands of satisfied patients.  Not only that, but there are also a lot of documentation and studies available pointing out to very high success rates!  It would greatly improve your way of life if you would take the first step to approach a trusted, and certified dental health professionals to take care of your needs.

Periodontal Disease

A recent study has found that periodontal disease has been linked to some cancers. Dr. Malek recommends that periodontal disease can be prevented by practicing good oral hygiene and regular visits with your dentist and periodontist.


Dental Implants

A dental implant (artificial tooth root) is a custom-made piece of bio-compatible metal (so your body does not reject this material) serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth.
