Single Tooth Implant
Washington DC & Bethesda – Chevy Chase
Before: Missing Tooth
Sometimes a patient is missing a single tooth and is looking to replace it.
The dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. When a tooth is lost, the dental implant provides the foundation for replacing it. This titanium implant is a new root upon which an abutment and crown (cap) are placed to restore the open space. The bone fuses to the titanium, creating a strong foundation for the artificial tooth.
After: Dental Implant Restored Single Crown
The single implant restored crown preserves the adjacent teeth around the space and the teeth were not altered to support a bridge. This dental implant helps prevent bone loss because it has integrated and will maintain the structure of her bone.
