Mar 7th, 2009 West London Solution to Tooth Loss: Single Tooth Implant Get in touch

Losing a tooth is not something to get depressed about especially with the availability of single tooth implant done by your Reliable West London dentist.

Basically, this procedure involves the placing of an artificial root in the jaw that will hold the replacement bridge or tooth. The implant itself actually looks like a screw and for this reason, you can be sure that the artificial tooth will not fall off.

Because of this, a single tooth implant is considered to be more teeth-friendly as it does not rely on the other neighboring teeth when it comes to support. Aside from this, it will:

• Make you feel more confident about how your smile looks
• Save the other teeth

A single tooth implant can address problems such as:

• Replacement of a loss tooth without affecting surrounding teeth
• Eliminate need for a partial denture

If you have lost a tooth, your West London dentist will most likely recommend a single tooth implant since it will look and feel more natural. Today, the most common types of implants include:

• Endosteal – implant in the jaw bone
• Subperiosteal – implant on the jaw bone

Before getting a single tooth implant, your West London dentist will first determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. You will need to be in good health (oral and general). In addition, you should have sufficient jaw bone that will support the tooth implant as well as healthy tissues in the gum.

Since your West London dentist will make sure that you are qualified for a single tooth implant, you can rest easy knowing that you are on good hands.
