Single Tooth Implant – Northwest Dallas, TX

Rebuild Your Smile with a Single Implant

When you’ve lost just one permanent tooth, you can try to convince yourself that it won’t adversely impact your oral health. But the truth is that it does! When a tooth is removed, the jaw bone begins to deteriorate and attracts less blood flow, altering the shape of your face and weakening the support that the bone and tissue give to your other teeth. Plus, these teeth can shift in order to fill in the gap in your smile, changing your bite and possibly causing jaw pain. Although you could choose to have a fixed bridge put in, this appliance requires preparing and anchoring to two healthy teeth and doesn’t address the missing root below the surface. Getting a single tooth implant helps you restore the crown and the root structure, giving you all the benefits of a healthy, natural smile.

Benefits of Single Tooth Implant

At Coco Dental Center, Dr. Patel can perform all the steps required to give you a useful, comfortable dental implant. After the two of you have decided that a dental implant is the right treatment for you, the implant process goes as follows:

  1. Patel will surgically place the implant post into your jaw bone.
  2. Over the period of several months, your jaw bone will grow and envelop the post.
  3. Then, we will attach an abutment, or connection piece in the implant.
  4. Finally, a dental crown will be bonded to the abutment, completing your healthy, functional smile.
