Single Tooth Replacement

At Salmon Creek Dental, we offer single tooth replacement services to help our patients restore their smiles and confidence after losing a tooth. Single tooth replacement is an excellent option for patients who have lost a tooth due to injury, decay, or other issues.


What Is Single Tooth Replacement?

Single tooth replacement is a dental procedure that involves replacing a single missing tooth with a dental implant. The implant consists of a titanium post that is surgically placed into your jawbone, a connector piece (abutment), and a crown (replacement tooth).

The Benefits of Single Tooth Replacement

Single tooth replacement offers numerous benefits over other tooth replacement options, including:

Improved oral health: Single tooth replacement helps to maintain the health of your surrounding teeth, as it doesn't require any alteration or support from adjacent teeth.

Improved comfort: Single tooth replacement is comfortable and natural-looking, and it won't shift or slip in your mouth like dentures.

Improved speech: Unlike dentures, single tooth replacement won't affect your speech or cause slurring.

Improved eating: Single tooth replacement allows you to eat your favorite foods without discomfort or restriction.


The Single Tooth Replacement Procedure

The single tooth replacement procedure involves several steps:

Consultation: During your consultation, our dental professionals will examine your mouth and determine if you are a good candidate for single tooth replacement.

Implant placement: If you are a good candidate, we will schedule your implant placement procedure. During this procedure, we will surgically place the titanium post into your jawbone.

Healing: After your implant placement procedure, your implant will need to heal and fuse with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration.

Abutment placement: Once your implant has fully integrated with your jawbone, we will place the abutment on top of the implant.

Crown placement: Finally, we will place the crown on top of the abutment, completing your single tooth replacement procedure.
