Single Tooth Implants
If you are missing one tooth, a single dental implant can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost tooth and its root.
At Paramount Dental Sydney we are able to provide full assistance including a thorough examination to determine if an implant is the right treatment for you. For this procedure to work, there must be enough strong bone in the jaw to permanently support the implant. Also the remaining natural teeth and supporting tissues near where the implant will be placed must be in good health. If your bone is too thin or soft and unable to support an implant, you may require a bone graft. Or if there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw or the sinuses are too close to the jaw, you may require a sinus lift.

Procedure for Single Tooth Implant
A small titanium rod which looks like a screw or cylinder is inserted into the jaw bone and acts as a base while the replacement tooth is mounted over it. The bone begins to grow into the titanium forming an almost perfect and unbreakable union. A porcelain tooth is then attached to the implant giving you something that looks and feels like a real tooth but doesn’t decay.
