Patients who have lost only a single tooth undergo this procedure. A crown and an implant can easily replace the affected area.
When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
In this case, a so-called one-piece implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single unit, resulting in immediately full functioning teeth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.
This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.
