What are the benefits of single dental implants?

Thanks to advances in dental techniques, it has never been simpler to have a missing tooth replaced. With a porcelain dental implant, we now have a permanent solution for restoring the natural look and feel of your smile. Dental implants don’t require any special cleaning other than brushing or flossing, and most patients can’t tell the difference between the feel of implants and their natural teeth.

The installation process begins with drilling a small hole in the jawbone. Inside this hole, a surgical-grade titanium post is inserted. Once it has fused with the bone, an abutment is placed on top of the post. The abutment is the actual structure to which the porcelain crown is attached. Dental porcelain is as strong as your natural teeth and indistinguishable in appearance.

To recap, here are the benefits of single porcelain dental implants: They are permanent. They  offer improved function. They match the strength of natural teeth. Replacing a missing tooth with a single dental implant will prevent bone loss. They offer the most like-like appearance of any tooth replacement method available.
