Single Tooth Replacement
Single Tooth Replacement is the most common type of dental implant that Tooth Implant Dentist offers to his patients here in Toronto. This is largely due to the fact that the loss of a single tooth can happen at any age while the loss of several teeth is more common among the elderly.
Patients who need this type of dental implant need it for many different reasons. One that is very common is injury. While hockey players are well known for having missing teeth, participants in any other sport can lose a tooth rather easily as well. Flying elbows, hardballs, falls, and more can all result in a single tooth getting knocked out.
Of course, other types of accidents can also cause a tooth to get knocked out. Tripping over household items, car accidents, and other common occurrences frequently cause a single tooth to be lost while not causing significant damage to other teeth. Work accidents for those engaged in manual labor are another common cause for a single tooth dental implant.
Fortunately, this type of dental treatment has come a long way over the years. Today, titanium implants are the most common. The material is considered ideal for the procedure because the element fuses with bone, fixing it in place just as though it were another tooth. Titanium implants are also easier to maintain than other teeth, as they are not prone to the stains and erosion that occurs with natural teeth. Of course, maintaining good dental health so that you can retain your other teeth remains important.
