What is a single tooth implant
As the name suggests, it is specifically designed to replace a single missing tooth. What sets these implants apart is that they replace not only the visible tooth but also the root underneath. This unique feature allows the implant to integrate with your body seamlessly.
A little about dental implants
The best way to describe a single tooth dental implant is to make the comparison to a natural tooth itself.
- The implant(1), like the root of your tooth, is what anchors your tooth to your jaw.
- Abutment(2), which attaches the implant to the implant crown. And lastly there is the implant
- Crown(3), it is the part of your tooth that is visible to the naked eye.
With the development of advanced surface technology, wide array of implant shapes/sizes, and revolutionary implant restorations; dental implants have created a whole new field in dentistry. Hanna Dental Implant Center specializes in the placement and restoration of dental implants.

Key benefits of a single tooth implant
Single tooth implants are a permanent solution that mimic the structure of a natural tooth, offering a more comfortable and natural feel than alternatives like bridges or dentures.
A missing tooth can make you feel self-conscious or embarrassed, negatively impacting your appearance. A single tooth implant looks and functions like a natural tooth, giving you a beautiful smile and appearance.
A dental implant is designed to feel like a natural tooth. Implants do not slip or move around in your mouth like dentures can, providing a more comfortable dental solution.
A missing tooth or teeth can affect your ability to speak clearly and confidently. A single tooth implant can restore your speech to its original clarity.
No Maintenance Required
A single tooth implant will not need extensive ongoing maintenance, all you need to do is follow basic hygienic principles, and your implant should last you a lifetime.

Well, I'd gone to a couple other dentists and one wanted the moon. Another one said, oh, no, you don't need to do that. We can just put Marilyn bridges in and all this stuff. And it was like, I know my mouth better than you do. A friend of my husband's had his mouth reconstructed here. He was very happy. And my husband said, Try them. Dr Hannah was wonderful. Walked me through it and I said, "let's do it". He's very kind and compassionate. His whole staff is. They're wonderful. I don't cry like this, but when people are that nice. I had a full mouth reconstruction. I had terrible teeth due to terrible dentistry as a child, and then pregnancies. And I had an accident in Mexico and totally messed my grill up, so I had to get it done. And I'm very happy I did. All the front office girls, they're fantastic. All the dental techs have been wonderful. And Dr. Hannah oh, my God. Is just amazing. Terrific care, Beautiful smile now.

Well, I was a classic tooth abuser, a dental hater. I hadn't been to a dentist in 18-20 years. A long time. I didn't like them. So I didn't go and thinking that teeth would be nice. I was used to having no teeth, almost. I chewed them out. Then I said, okay, this is the way to do things is dental implants. I knew that. So I started looking into that. Dr. Hannah's ability to move back and forth. The communication, it was done with respect, and the office is done well. And so that was always a positive thing, the interaction between the various levels of skill and knowledge. I'm satisfied. Yes, it is a process, and the process is working well.

I highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Hanna. I did my research, you know, and Dr. Hanna had the best reviews. So, I came to meet them. The surgery started at 8:00 AM. They extracted 19 teeth and placed the temporaries - no pain at all. We were about to celebrate our 10th anniversary, my husband and I, and my teeth were in such bad condition. I used to smile, but always covering my mouth. The whole process was explained to us, and we decided to go for it. So, I got teeth - it was amazing. I could finally chew properly. My teeth were discolored. I had only one functional tooth for chewing - it was painful. My gums were receding. I have been coming here for cleanings and maintenance ever since, and everything has been wonderful. Now, I can bite into an apple or enjoy a piece of steak without any issues. I can't stress enough how much I recommend them - if you're considering something like this, I highly, highly recommend him. He's also a pleasant person. He's genuinely nice and always welcoming. The experience is just great. He's personable and a perfectionist in his work. He extends that professionalism to his staff as well. So, I definitely recommend him.

Your single tooth dental implant journey: What to expect
Our streamlined dental implant process starts with a thorough consultation and personalized treatment planning by Dr. Hanna. Whether you opt for same-day implant placement or a scheduled procedure, our minimally invasive techniques ensure a comfortable experience. You’ll leave with a temporary tooth while your implant integrates, and in just 12 to 14 weeks, your permanent implant crown will restore your smile’s full brilliance, offering a lasting solution for your missing or compromised tooth.
The first step is to visit Dr. Hanna for a comprehensive oral exam and consultation. During this visit, he will determine if dental implants are the right option for you and create a customized implant placement plan.
Depending on your specific case, you may require additional treatments such as tooth extraction, bone grafting, or alveoloplasty to prepare your jaw and mouth for implant surgery. Dr. Hanna will discuss these treatment options with you in detail if necessary.
During the next appointment, Dr. Hanna will clean and numb your mouth and surgically place the dental implants into your gum and jaw tissue. The area will be sutured shut to promote healing. If you require multiple implants, this process will be repeated accordingly. A temporary implant-supported restoration will be placed to ensure you walk out with a beautiful smile.
Healing, Recovery & Osseointegration
It typically takes around 1-2 weeks for the implant site to heal and feel relatively normal. However, the process of osseointegration, where the implant permanently bonds with your jaw bone and gum tissue, can take up to 6 months. You will need to attend follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing during this time.
Building Implant-Supported Restoration
Your final implant-supported restoration, such as a dental bridge, crown, or implant-supported denture, will be custom-crafted by a dental lab. Dr. Hanna will take impressions and images of your teeth for this purpose.
Placing Your Abutment
A few weeks before your final appointment, an abutment will be placed on your dental implant. The abutment securely connects the implant and implant-supported restoration and must be in place before completing the implant.
Restoring & Completing Your Implant
Once the abutment is attached and your implant has fully healed, you will have a final appointment with Dr. Hanna. He will ensure that your implant-supported restoration fits properly and bond it into place. You will receive instructions on how to care for your implant, and you can leave with a brand-new smile.

Implant FAQs: Your Questions Answered
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
How Single Tooth Implants are Placed
The process of getting a single tooth dental implant requires several steps, beginning with a consultation with your dentist. During this visit, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums to determine if dental implants are the right choice for you. If implants are recommended, the dentist will then proceed to drill a small hole in your jawbone and insert a titanium post into the gum.
Most of the time, the abutment and implant can be completed on the same day, helping you to walk out with a smile you can be proud to show off. After the titanium post is inserted, the dentist will attach the abutment to the post.
To complete the procedure, measurements will be taken, and a crown will be fashioned and placed over the abutment. With proper care, your single tooth implant will provide you with a comfortable and long-lasting solution that looks and functions just like your natural teeth.
What are the consequences of having a missing tooth:
If you are missing a tooth, you’re likely experiencing one or more of the following:
When an individual is missing a tooth, this can lead to feelings of discomfort and a lack of ease when consuming food. This is due to the fact that the missing tooth can cause a disruption in the natural chewing motion, leading to difficulty in breaking down and processing food.
The absence of a tooth can lead to the displacement of the neighboring teeth, which can ultimately result in various dental issues. This can pose a significant threat to the adjacent teeth, even if they were initially in a healthy state.
Besides displacement, you could also experience bad breath or gum disease.
The absence of a tooth in your oral cavity can trigger your body’s restorative system to initiate bone resorption, resulting in bone loss.
If you have a conspicuously absent tooth in a prominent area of your oral cavity, you might refrain from engaging in conversation, smiling, or laughing when you are around others.
All the points mentioned above will significantly impact your life and impede you from living your life to the fullest. Why should you let a single missing tooth hold you back from life?
Can a single tooth be implanted?
Yes, a single tooth can be implanted. There are numerous benefits of having a dental implant compared to other tooth replacement options. Apart from resembling and working like a real tooth, a dental implant replaces a single tooth without compromising the well-being of the adjacent teeth.
