Single Tooth Dental Implants in Brandon, FL.


If you’ve lost a single tooth or even several teeth and want a beautiful, natural-appearing smile, the dentists at Brandon Smiles have the solution for you. Single tooth dental implants are a resilient and permanent way to restore your smile without having to fuss with dentures or restrict your diet to soft foods.

Dental implants are anchored in the bone of your jaw, just like natural teeth. The anchor, or implant post, is topped with an abutment and then finally a crown. The implant post plays the same role as a natural tooth’s root and is not visible. In fact, the crown is the only part of your dental implant that anyone will be able to see. This allows your dental implant to appear perfectly natural and completely indistinguishable from real teeth.

Who is a Candidate for Single Tooth Dental Implants?

Many patients are good candidates for single tooth dental implants. If you’re missing one tooth or a few teeth spaced apart from each other, this procedure could be the answer you’ve been looking for. Patients who have lost many teeth or several teeth in a row may benefit more from multiple tooth replacement or full arch replacement.

You’ll also need to have sufficient bone remaining in your jaw so that your new dental implant can be securely anchored. Our expert dentists use examinations and dental x-rays to determine if there is enough bone left to support an implant.

Don’t despair if you find out you don’t have sufficient bone for an implant. We offer bone grafting services at Brandon Smiles to help restore your osseous tissue and get you on the path to having a beautiful replacement tooth installed.

What is the Single Tooth Dental Implant Process?

After making sure you have enough bone, the implant procedure will begin. Dental implants are installed in a staged process and typically take a total of five to 11 months. The first step is to place the implant in the gap where your missing tooth was located. This involves drilling into the bone and positioning the implant post. Don’t worry – you’ll be under an anesthetic at all times.

Next, you’ll need to wait several months for the site to heal and allow the bone to fuse with your implant. Once you’re sufficiently healed, it’s time for the second procedure. This consists of adding the abutment and a temporary crown. This crown will resemble a natural tooth, but it’s not intended to be permanent.

Finally, your permanent crown will be fashioned using your natural teeth as a guide. No one except your dentist will be able to tell this crown from a natural tooth, and you’ll be the owner of a nice, complete smile.

How Do You Care for a Single Tooth Replacement Implant?

Caring for a single tooth dental implant is straightforward. Your implant is not removable like dentures, and the basic of oral hygiene apply. Floss daily, brush thoroughly twice a day, and keep your dental appointments – including your twice yearly cleaning and checkup.

It’s also important to take particular care of the teeth adjacent to your implant. If these teeth begin to decay, it could weaken the bone anchoring your implant.

Take the same precautions with your implants that you would with your regular teeth. This means avoiding chewing ice or using your teeth as tools – they’re for chewing, not for opening bottles. Although your implant crown isn’t susceptible to decay, it can be broken. Fortunately, if this happens, your dentist can simply replace the crown instead of the entire implant.

Why Choose Brandon Smiles for Your Single Tooth Replacement?

While single tooth dental implants have an excellent success rate, they are not part of routine dentistry. A dentist must have extensive experience, specific training, and access to specialized equipment in order to successfully and safely place dental implants. At Brandon Smiles, our dentists have these skills and years of experience.

Also, many dental clinics will outsource the crown-making process to outside laboratories. This isn’t the case at Brandon Smiles in Brandon, FL. We perform the entire dental implant process under in-house. This means you’re assured of consistent quality and individual attention to your needs.
