Dental Implants for Single Tooth
A dental implant for a single tooth involves implanting a post into the gums to fuse with the bone of the jaw in the place that the tooth is missing. Placement is important and must be placed where the bone is strong enough to hold the implant permanently and healthy enough to fuse with it. A tooth is created from materials that should last a lifetime and the tooth is placed over the post and attached. This creates a permanent tooth that can fit with the other teeth and be matched both in colour and shape to the teeth surrounding it. This tooth can be treated just as a natural tooth would be, brushing and flossing is important and regular dental visits should be maintained.
In the case of a single missing or damaged tooth it can be replaced with one dental implant, including one post and one replacement tooth on that post.

Benefits of Dental Implants
A dental implant is a permanent solution that should not require repair or replacement, offering a return to regular lifestyles and diets, and the confidence of a tooth that blends with those around it. The longevity can save both time and money in the future as a properly maintained implant will not require further attention or treatment.
The ease of care for a dental implant is a benefit preferred by many, they are not removed for cleaning as a denture is but are brushed and flossed regularly and maintained with dental cleanings and appointments.
Expect a discomfort during and after the appointment, but during the healing process there should be little pain.
In some cases the implant process can be completed within one appointment from removal of the damaged tooth to the addition of both the post and the tooth itself. Whether there is one appointment or a few depends upon each individual and the situation presented. Please read multiple dental implants and all on 4 dental implants for more information about dental implants treatment.

Risks of Dental Implants
There is often discomfort during the process and healing, though there should not be strong pain at any point. Each procedure carries the risk of infection and signs of infection should be watched for and treated. If pain becomes stronger or does not decrease the dentist should be contact. Any signs of discharge or pus should be examined for signs of infection or incorrect healing.
While healing care should be taken around the implant and a salt water rinse may be recommended to encourage healing and decrease inflammation. Slight swelling around the implant site is normal, and should go down in a few days or a week, as the gums heal around the implant.
