A dental implant is usually the best treatment method to replace a single lost tooth.Unlike a bridge, an implant-retained crown does not rest on neighbouring teeth; it is a discrete individual unit. The adjacent teeth therefore are not filed down, and they maintain their structural integrity. The teeth are also not joined together as they are with a bridge.
In our dentists' hands the placement of a single tooth implant is a remarkably simple process, and most procedures can be completed within half an hour.
In many cases a crown can be affixed to the implant at the same appointment so that the patient leaves our practice with a brand new tooth.
