Single Tooth Implants in Medina, OH
Single Tooth Implants are very successful under the right conditions and when done correctly.
Candidates for a Single Tooth Implant?
Anyone can have an implant. Age is not a factor and neither is health. There are certain conditions that prevent implant placements but Dr Karunagaran and Dr Horan will determine if this is safe for you at their consultation visit.
Single dental implants can typically be inserted in an appointment of just an hour and recovery time is pretty quick and most patients will feel perfectly well enough to return to work or normal activities the very next day. It’s not uncommon to feel zero discomfort after this procedure. Any discomfort should be easily controlled with over-the-counter painkillers.
Advantages of Single Tooth Implants?
Aesthetically, replacement teeth can look amazing and is the only option for replacing a tooth where the new tooth will look as if it is emerging from the gums, just like a natural tooth. A single tooth implant is a particularly good option if the teeth adjacent to the gap are in good condition and are healthy and strong. Studies have also shown that you have superior chewing abilities when replacing a space with a dental implant.
