Single Tooth Implants in Brisbane

realistic implantMissing a tooth? Don’t let a gap in your grin keep you from smiling confidently. A single tooth implant at Excellence in Dentistry could be the perfect solution! This type of dental restoration, which is used to replace a missing tooth, consists of a titanium or ceramic implant post that is surgically placed into the jawbone, topped with an abutment, and a dental crown, mimicking the natural structure and function of a tooth.


What Are Some Benefits?

Apart from their aesthetic appeal, single tooth implants offer many benefits. They preserve adjacent teeth, restore your natural chewing function and help prevent jawbone loss. With proper care and maintenance, including regular dental check-ups and practising good oral hygiene, implants can last for many years, if not a lifetime!

Who May Need This Type of Restoration?

If you have any of the following, you may benefit:

  • Tooth loss due to trauma
  • Severe tooth decay or damage
  • Periodontal disease
  • Aesthetic concerns
  • Failed root canal treatment
  • Congenital anomalies or developmental issues
  • Orthodontic concerns

What to Expect

The process of placing a single tooth implant involves a couple of stages, starting with an initial consultation with one of our dentists to assess candidacy. After the surgical placement, the implant requires a healing period to fuse with your jawbone, a process known as osseointegration. The abutment is then placed, followed by the custom-made dental crown.

We are able to mill our own customised ceramic crowns in-house with our CEREC technology or your dentist may choose to go with a traditional porcelain crown which is made in a local lab off-site.

The entire process typically spans several months, including the healing period. However, the timeline may vary depending on factors such as bone quality, healing ability, and the need for additional procedures such as bone grafting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a suitable candidate?

Ideal candidates for single tooth implants have good oral health, adequate jawbone density, and no conditions that may impact healing. Your dentist will thoroughly assess your situation to determine if this dental restoration is right for you.

How should I care for my restoration?

Caring for a single tooth implant is as simple as caring for your natural teeth. Regular brushing and cleaning between the implant and the adjacent teeth, consistent check-ups, and avoiding harmful habits will ensure your implant’s longevity.

Do health funds cover this type of restoration?

Insurance coverage for single tooth implants depends on the level of cover with your health fund. Some providers may cover a fraction of the cost, while others may not cover implants at all. It’s best to check directly with your relevant health fund provider.
