If you are missing a tooth, Dr. Anuradha Vaddineni can provide a single tooth implant in North Richland Hills, Texas. Dental implants are made up of a titanium implant post and a dental restoration. The implant post is surgically placed in the jawbone by our dentist, where it acts as replacement tooth roots. The dental restoration, which is usually a dental crown, is attached to the top of the dental implant post.
To place a single tooth implant, our dentist will first surgically place the implant post in the bone socket of the missing tooth. The jawbone will grow around the dental implant post as it heals. The healing period will last from six to twelve weeks. An abutment, or a small connector post, is then attached to the top of the implant post. Impressions are then taken of your teeth so that the dental restoration can be created. Once the dental crown is complete, it is attached to the abutment. Your dental implant will look and function just like your natural teeth. In addition, dental implants are very durable and will last for many years, or even a lifetime.
