Single Tooth Implants – Plymouth, MA

Fill the Gap and Protect Your Oral Health

Many people who are missing one tooth choose not to replace it. They may reason that since they can still chew without too much difficulty, tooth replacement is not truly necessary. They may not even be concerned with the aesthetic consequences of a lost tooth, especially if the empty space is toward the back of the mouth. However, such thinking is dangerous. In truth, it is vital to replace even a single missing tooth. Without tooth replacement, the bone at the site of the lost tooth will begin to deteriorate. The nearby teeth could begin to drift out of place. Further tooth loss may even occur. A single tooth dental implant can prevent such issues.

After Dr. Aveni ensures that you are a candidate for dental implants, he will reschedule you for implant placement surgery. During the surgery, he places a titanium, prosthetic tooth root into the bone. Then, a remarkable process known as osseointegration begins. The dental implant will actually fuse with the jawbone, enabling it to provide the strongest base possible for the crown that will eventually go on top of it.

Osseointegration usually takes at least a few months. Following it, you will return to our office to have an abutment (a small connector piece) attached to the implant. The abutment will secure your custom crown in place.
