Single Tooth Implants Torrance, CA

Dentist of Torrance uses single tooth implants to help restore the smiles and oral health of patients who are missing teeth. This permanent solution helps individuals balance their bites while offering a pleasing aesthetic that boosts self-confidence.

How Do Single Tooth Implants from Dentist of Torrance Function?

Single tooth implants from Dentist of Torrance function by replacing the root of the missing tooth. There are three parts to a single tooth implant that work together: a post, an abutment, and a prosthesis. First, the post is surgically placed into the jawbone by our dental implants specialist. Next, the abutment, which connects the post to the prosthesis, is attached. Finally, the prosthesis, also known as a crown, is attached to the abutment.

How Are Single Tooth Implants Constructed?

The post and abutment are usually constructed of titanium due to its biocompatible nature. However, the prosthesis may be made with either porcelain, porcelain integrated with metal, or gold.

How Safe Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a safe option when it comes to restoring missing teeth. Importantly, dental implants are a durable dental solution that offers many benefits while feeling and functioning like a normal tooth.

What are the Benefits of Receiving Single Tooth Implants?

There are multiple benefits to receiving single tooth implants from Dentist of Torrance. Dental implants:

  • Restore your smile while balancing your bite
  • Are a permanent and safe dental solution for missing teeth
  • Preserve the strength and density of your jawbone and prevent TMJ
  • Help maintain oral health and keep other teeth from shifting

Why Do I Need Single Tooth Implants?

Single tooth implants are important for individuals who are missing a tooth because not replacing a missing tooth can cause additional issues, such as an unbalanced bite and the development of TMJ. Both Dentist of Torrance and the American Dental Association recognize the need to promptly replace any missing teeth and keep remaining teeth from shifting. Not replacing missing teeth in a timely manner may have unintended consequences that comprise your health including:

  • Persistent headaches and the possible development of migraines
  • Weaker teeth that may easily fracture, chip, or break
  • More pain and/or sensitivity in the teeth and facial region
  • Strain and pressure on facial muscles and the jaw joints that may lead to TMJ

How Can Single Tooth Implants Help You?

Single tooth implants can help you resume normal activities, such as eating the foods you love again. Your single tooth implant will look, feel, and function like your other teeth. You can also treat it like your natural teeth when it comes to maintaining your oral health, brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once. Electric toothbrushes may also provide an advantage to keeping your teeth clean.

Why is Oral Hygiene Important for Implants?

Keeping your implants clean is just as important as keeping your teeth and gums clean. Oral hygiene can help protect against periodontal disease. Periodontal disease has been linked to peri-implantitis, which can affect your single tooth implants by causing bone and tissue resorption, inflammation, and pain.
