Single Tooth

AAID_Fig2_color There is no better, long-lasting option to restoring a missing tooth than a dental implant fitted with a crown.

Traditional replacement of a single tooth using a dental implant is often completed over multiple visits:

  • Consultation and planning, including initial exam, imaging of your teeth, questions about your dental and medical history, and discussion of your treatment options.
  • Placement of the dental implant, a substitute for the missing natural tooth root, either with or without a built-in abutment (a connector placed on, or built into, the top of the implant) that will attach to the replacement tooth. A temporary tooth can be placed while the dental implant integrates with your natural bone to form a strong foundation for your replacement tooth. Most people return to work the next day. 
  • Placement of the abutment, if one wasn’t placed during the prior visit. 
  • Placement of a custom-made crown, or replacement tooth.
