Crowns and Implants are the most common way to replace missing teeth. There are two components to treatment: the Dental Implant; and the Porcelain Crown.
The first component, the dental implant is first placed in the bone. The dental implant is the substitute ‘root’ which acts as the base for the crown to screw into.
the second component, the porcelain crown also contains an abutment which is the part which links the crown and the dental implant together.
Single Tooth Replacement
The replacement of a single missing tooth with a single dental implant and crown has many benefits. The main benefit is that the tooth is replaced with a long-term result that does not involve any risk to any other teeth.
A missing tooth should be replaced soon after tooth removal to prevent bone loss which may complicate your Dental Implant Treatment.
During your Dental Implant Consultation, a personalised Dental Implant Plan will be created for you and this will assess your suitability and ensure a Dental Implant Treatment is best for you and your mouth.
