Why Choose Single Tooth Implants Over Other Restoration Options?

looking at smile in the mirrorDon’t let a missing tooth keep you from feeling confident about your smile! A single tooth implant at Excellence in Dentistry could best fit your needs.

As one of the several restoration options available at our practice, this procedure replaces your missing tooth with a titanium or ceramic implant post that is surgically placed into your jawbone. It is then topped with an abutment and a dental crown to mimic your former tooth’s natural structure and function.

Who Is a Good Fit for This Option?

This kind of restoration works best for people who have:

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

What Are the Benefits?

Not only do single-tooth implants have great aesthetic appeal, but they also offer many benefits. They restore your natural chewing function, preserve adjacent teeth, and help prevent jawbone loss.

With proper care and maintenance, including regular dental check-ups and practicing good oral hygiene, implants can last for many years – even your lifetime. In terms of other options available for Brisbane patients, single implants are a more permanent fixture than a partial bridge or denture and feel more comfortable in the mouth.

Another benefit is that a single implant only involves the area of the installation of the post and crown, whereas with bridgework, you may have to shave down healthy teeth to help the bridge fit into the space.

Excellence in Dentistry Offers a Wide Range of Payment Options

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

Many Australians may be unaware of this option, but you can apply for the early release of your superannuation to cover certain essential dental procedures. It allows you access to the funds you need without delay.

Our other options for payment include:

  • National Dental Plan (NDP)
  • Zip
  • Afterpay
  • TLC Dental Loans
