Single Tooth Implant
EAST MADISON DENTAL | Tenafly NJ
By placing a single tooth implant, we can restore the beauty of your smile in two phases:
After numbing your mouth, we will surgically implant the tooth in your gums. Once the implant is fit snugly in place, we will close the incision with a stitch. Over the next few weeks, the implant securely attaches itself to the jawbone.
To prepare the implant for the crown, in some cases , we will re-expose it, by making an incision in your gums to bring it above the gumline.
Once the implant is in place, we are ready to make your new crown. The process for fabricating a permanent crown varies from patient to patient. By making impressions of your mouth, we will make accurate working models to ensure proper alignment. Utilizing these models, we will carefully customize your crown and place it on top of the implant.
Regular check-ups and proper home care ensures the success of your new restoration.
