Single-Tooth Dental Implants

Request an Appointment

At TruCare Dental, we specialize in single-tooth dental implants, providing a sophisticated and effective solution for replacing individual missing teeth. This option is perfect for those who have lost a tooth due to an accident, decay or other causes, offering a replacement that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth in both appearance and function.

Single-Tooth Implants: A Closer Look

Our single-tooth dental implants involve a two-part process. First, a high-quality titanium post is implanted into the jawbone, acting as a new, artificial tooth root. This post provides a firm foundation for the implant. After the post integrates with the bone, a custom-made crown is attached, perfectly designed to match your natural teeth in color, shape and size.

Why Choose Single-Tooth Dental Implants?

  • Natural-Looking Results: Designed to mimic your own teeth, ensuring a natural and cohesive appearance.
  • Maintains Oral Health: Helps to keep the adjacent teeth stable and supports overall jawbone health.
  • Durable and Long-Lasting: With proper care, these implants can last a lifetime.
  • Enhanced Functionality: Restores your ability to chew and speak just as you would with your natural tooth.
  • Non-Invasive to Neighboring Teeth: Unlike some other restorative procedures, single-tooth implants do not require altering the surrounding teeth.

Who is a Good Candidate?

You may be ideal for a single-tooth implant if you:

  • Have one missing tooth.
  • Have a sufficiently strong jawbone to support the implant or are a candidate for bone grafting.
  • Are dedicated to good oral hygiene practices.

Our dental experts, including Dr. Andrea Patterson, Dr. Kendra Velázquez and Dr. Margo Rainey, will conduct an in-depth assessment to ensure that a single-tooth implant is the best solution for your dental needs.

The Process of Getting a Single-Tooth Implant

Your journey towards a restored smile includes the following stages:

  • In-Depth Consultation: A comprehensive examination to devise a bespoke treatment strategy.
  • Implant Insertion: Precise surgical placement of the titanium post in your jawbone.
  • Healing and Fusion: A period for the implant to securely integrate with the bone.
  • Crown Placement: The final step involves attaching a custom-fabricated crown to the implant.
