Dental implants in Perth are perfect for people missing single or multiple teeth. They are excellent solutions to replace missing, damaged, infected or decayed teeth, including gum disease. They resemble natural teeth and have easy maintenance, just like your natural teeth.

If you are missing just one tooth, you can go for a single dental implant to replace the missing tooth rather than all-on-4 or full mouth implants.

What is a Single Tooth Implant?

A single tooth implant is a dental implant surgery used to replace one missing tooth. Your dentist ensures the titanium post is inserted into the jawbone of the missing tooth to replace the lost tooth’s root. After that, a dental crown is attached over the titanium post. In treating the loss of a single tooth.

A single dental tooth implant is preferred over a tooth-supported fixed bridge. It replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of the other neighbouring tooth. A single implant is also easier to maintain than a dental bridge.

A single tooth dental implant comprises a screw-shaped titanium implant placed within the jawbone, an abutment connecting the implant to the dental crown or bridge. The dental crown is the visible part of the entire process. MyImplantDentist is your trusted partner for single tooth implant solutions in both Perth and Brisbane.

How do single-tooth implants work?

Single-tooth implants work by surgically placing a titanium implant into the jawbone, which serves as an artificial tooth root. This implant fuses with the bone through a process called osseointegration. Once the implant has fully integrated with the bone, a custom-made dental crown is attached to the implant. This crown looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth, providing a permanent and stable solution for replacing a single missing tooth. Single-tooth implants offer numerous benefits, including improved aesthetics, chewing ability, and overall oral health. Our experienced implant dentists in Perth and Brisbane are dedicated to delivering top-quality dental implant services.

Implants are small in size, and they come from pure titanium. There are two types of single tooth implants.
  • endostealThe endosteal implant is the most popular tooth implant type, but they require good and healthy bones for fusion. In the endosteal, the titanium post is placed in the jaw of the missing tooth. The procedure requires time to heal; it needs time to create a fusion and stronghold. After healing, the artificial tooth is placed in the titanium post to ensure it fits in with the neighbouring teeth.
  • subperiostealThe subperiosteal implant is the next alternate option to the endosteal tooth implant. Unlike the endosteal inserted into the jawbone, the implants rest on top of the bone but under the gum in the subperiosteal.
The implant dentist uses this method only when the patient’s jawbone is inadequate for implant placement or when the patient does not wish to have extensive dental surgery to add more bone to the area. After the metal frame is placed under the gum with a post attached, the gum heals around the frame holding it in place before the artificial tooth gets attached.
