Single Tooth Replacement


Some benefits of a ceramic implant:

When a tooth and that tooth’s root are both damage this can be one of the best way to go is to get a dental implant along with a ceramic crown, and this is a solution that ends up functioning just like any other normal tooth.

When this is happening in the procedure a dentist will usually opt to do a one-piece implant, which entails all of the components being installed as a single unit and being immediately in use for the teeth. This of course makes the treatment period much shorter and efficient, and allows for a minimized amount of pain.

  • Teeth function immediately
  • Esthetic result
  • Stable solution that lasts a lifetime


This procedure usually entails about four different dentist visits, but it is not too painful and you should be able to go to work the next day after the implant is placed inside your mouth.


Installing The New Tooth — Step-by-Step

The following is just one of many different courses of treatment so you should make sure that you are talking to your dentist about these steps to see if this is the perfect treatment for you and your dental implant procedure.

1: Before the procedure

The dentist will make his initial exams and take one or a few x-rays of the dental implant area to prepare.

2: Installing a dental Implant

This is when the implant becomes installed and this is when a prosthetic tooth will be provided to the patient so that he or she will be able to function and eat in a more normal right away. The real implant takes at least a few months to get ready so it is a waiting game for the next step.

3: Attaching the new crown

The final step will be the actual placement of the permanent tooth, and this is where the tooth is installed forever and no additional treatment would be necessary.

4: End Result

This new tooth will be just like a natural tooth, and so you should definitely do all of your normal dental hygiene routines to make sure that the tooth and your gums around it remain as healthy as possible.


Tooth-supported fixed bridge

This type of bridge will involve a support for the bridge and the grinding down of other adjacent teeth to the spot of the dental implant, and so it is a pretty good solution that also allows the tooth to function with a fairly easy installation. However, there are two disadvantages and these are that there is bone restoration and you will end up sacrificing healthy teeth for the bridge to be installed.

Removable partial denture

This is definitely not a permanent result to a lost tooth and it kind of is pretty loosely attached and has some problems with function and comfort as well. This partial denture is made of plastic and this means that will definitely not look as real as say a ceramic crown, but of course there are a few benefits and those are that the adjacent teeth to the dental implant are safe from harm and it is really cheap and easy to install.

Resin-bonded bridge

This alternative right away has some pretty good advantages, and these include the facts that it is really easily installed and that it functions really well. Also this alternative is made up of ceramic so it looks pretty real as well and functions well too. Your healthy teeth are also not affected with this procedure and the downside is that it is not permanent at all. This bridge will eventually come off most likely after just about two years or so.
