Single Tooth Implants
Do you have missing teeth? It is critically important to replace missing teeth. Eating and chewing with missing teeth can sabotage your bite and lead to incessant discomfort. Missing teeth can give rise to a mouth rearrangement that often results in facial changes that look decrepit.
A single tooth implant procedure may be done if a tooth has been extracted or is missing. A titanium implant base is placed into the jawbone to resemble the tooth root. We allow a period of time for the jawbone to heal over the implant base before fitting for a crown.
Next, an abutment is screwed into the base of the implant to allow for a crown to be fitted on top. Finally, a custom fabricated crown is placed over the abutment to function like a real tooth.
Dr. Kirsch placed my implants almost 7 years ago and to this day I am not only extremely satisfied with my smile but more confident. More recently Dr. Kirsch did a gum graft over that same area and not only was the healing process easier than expected but they look amazing. I can confidently say I would recommend him for implants / grafts!! His staff is awesome, too!
