Single-tooth implants can be used in people who are losing one or more tooth. An enhancement is operatively placed in an starting that is created by your dental professional in the jawbone. After the enhancement combines (attaches) to your navicular bone, it functions as a new “root” for the top that will be changing your losing tooth. A top (cap), which is created to look like a organic tooth, is connected to the enhancement and fills up the space left in the oral cavity by the losing tooth.
For this process to work, there must be enough navicular bone in the jaw, and the navicular bone has to be powerful enough to hold and support the enhancement. If there is not enough navicular bone, be may need to be included with a process known as navicular bone enhancement. In addition, organic tooth and assisting cells near where the enhancement will be placed must be in great health.
