What Are Single Tooth Implants?

A single tooth implant is a dental restoration that replaces a single missing tooth. It involves the surgical placement of a titanium implant post into the jawbone, which serves as an artificial tooth root. After the implant integrates with the bone, an abutment is attached to connect the implant to a custom-made artificial tooth or crown.

Three Main Components of a Single Tooth Implant

Single tooth implant has become a go-to choice for many individuals seeking a permanent and natural-looking replacement for a missing tooth. At its core, a single tooth implant consists of three main components, each playing a crucial role in restoring your smile and dental function.

Implant Post: The Foundation of the Restoration

The first and perhaps most critical component of a single tooth implant is the implant post. This element serves as an artificial tooth root, anchoring the entire restoration securely in the jawbone.

Typically made from biocompatible titanium, the implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone during a minor oral surgery procedure. Titanium’s unique property allows it to fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration, ensuring exceptional stability and durability. It’s this fusion with the bone that makes dental implants a long-lasting and reliable option for replacing missing teeth.

Abutment: Connecting Implant to the Crown

Once osseointegration has successfully occurred (usually over a few months), the next step is to attach the abutment to the implant post. The abutment is a small connector piece that extends above the gum line. Its primary role is to link the implant post with the replacement tooth or crown.

The precision with which the abutment is placed is essential, as it directly influences the final fit and appearance of the restoration. Abutments are often customised to match the unique characteristics of each patient’s smile, ensuring a seamless blend with the surrounding teeth.

Crown: The Visible, Functional Tooth

The third and most visible component of the single tooth implant is the crown. This is the artificial tooth that is custom-designed to mimic the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth.

The crown is securely attached to the abutment, completing the restoration. Once in place, it functions just like a natural tooth, allowing you to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.

The high-quality materials used in crown fabrication, such as porcelain or ceramic, not only provide excellent durability but also offer a lifelike appearance that seamlessly blends into your smile.

How Long Do Single Tooth Implants Last?

Single tooth implants are designed to be a long-lasting tooth replacement solution, often lasting a lifetime when properly cared for. The key to their durability lies in the process of osseointegration, where the implant fuses with the jawbone, creating a stable and secure foundation. Additionally, high-quality materials like titanium for the implant and porcelain or ceramic for the crown contribute to their longevity.

Regular oral care, including diligent brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, is crucial to prevent issues like gum disease that could affect the implant’s health. Moreover, maintaining a healthy lifestyle by avoiding habits like smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can further enhance the implant’s chances of lasting for many years, allowing patients to enjoy a functional and natural-looking replacement tooth.

Who Makes a Good Candidate for a Single Tooth Implant?

A good candidate for a single tooth implant should possess good overall oral health, including healthy gums and adequate jawbone density to support the implant. They should be a non-smoker or willing to quit temporarily, in good general health, and committed to maintaining proper oral hygiene.

Ideal candidates have a single missing tooth and realistic expectations about the procedure’s outcome. Age isn’t a strict limitation, but they should have stopped growing, typically in their late teens or early twenties. If there’s insufficient bone density, bone grafting may be necessary.

Finally, good bite alignment contributes to the success of the implant. Ultimately, a qualified dentist or oral surgeon should assess and determine an individual’s suitability for a single tooth implant.

Our Most Frequently Asked Dental Implant Questions

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are like artificial tooth roots made from titanium. They’re placed into your jawbone during surgery to support replacement teeth or bridges. They’re a solid base for dental prostheses, such as crowns or dentures, which help restore both the function and appearance of your smile.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Determining your candidacy for dental implants in Perth depends on factors such as jawbone density, oral health, overall health, and realistic expectations. When you meet with our skilled implant dentist, they’ll carefully check to see if you’re a good fit for dental implants. They’ll do a detailed assessment to make sure this procedure is right for you and your needs.

What materials are dental implants made from?

Dental implants are typically made from titanium, a biocompatible material that is accepted by the body and serves as a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Your new teeth will be designed to match the colour and shape of your natural teeth for a seamless smile.

How much do dental implants costs?

In Perth, the cost of dental implants typically starts at around $3,999 AUD for a single tooth implant, including the implant, abutment, and crown. However, this price can vary depending on the complexity of the case and any additional treatments needed.

  • Single dental implant, including implant, abutment, and crown, starts from $3,999 in Perth.
  • All-On-4 implant prices start at $19,000 per jaw in Perth.
  • Implant-retained dentures start from $6,000 in Perth.

During your consultation, we’ll talk about your needs and give you a clear idea of the costs involved. We’re all about transparency and helping you achieve a confident smile that fits your budget. Book a consultation with our experienced dental team to get more information!

Additional Costs and Considerations

How successful are dental implants?

Dental implants have a high success rate, often well above 90%. However, success rates can vary depending on the health of the individual receiving the implant, where in the jaw the implants are placed, and the professionalism of the dental provider.

Do dental implants hurt?

Most patients report that the discomfort experienced during a dental implant procedure is less than that of a tooth extraction. You’ll be given local anaesthesia to numb the area, and most patients describe the feeling as a slight pressure rather than pain.

Will dental implants help if I have full dentures or partial dentures?

Yes, dental implants can be used to support dentures, making them secure and allowing you to eat and speak more comfortably. This is often done using an All-on-4 treatment approach.

Can I get a dental implant years after extraction or tooth loss?

Yes, you can get dental implants years after tooth loss. The primary requirement is that you have sufficient bone in the area of the missing tooth to provide support for the implant. If you’ve lost a lot of bone, you may require a bone graft before the implant procedure.

How long does the dental implant procedure take?

The length of the procedure varies depending on the number of implants needed and your overall oral health. Typically, the process involves several stages and can take anywhere from a few months to a year.

Are dental implants safe?

Yes, dental implants have a proven safety record. They are made from biocompatible materials that are accepted by the body. However, like any surgical procedure, there are risks involved, which is why it’s important to have the procedure done by a skilled and experienced implant dentist.

Does health insurance cover dental implants?

Coverage varies by provider and policy. It’s advisable to check with your insurance provider for details or contact our dentist.
