Single Tooth Dental Implant – Williamstown – NJ
Restore Your Smile with a Dental Implant
Every tooth in your mouth serves an important role in your confidence and your quality of life. When even one is missing, you lose your self-esteem and your ability to eat many of your favorite foods. Not to mention, there are several issues brewing beneath the surface of your gum tissue, like bone loss. You can complete your smile using the latest advancements in dentistry. Besides a fixed bridge, you can also fill the space with a dental implant in Williamstown. Dr. Wael Kassem will rebuild your smile with results that look and feel natural.
Single Tooth Replacement Options
Although it may be a single tooth, leaving it untreated can have devastating consequences to your oral health because you do not just lose the crown. You are also missing the root. Your jawbone is no longer stimulated in this area, causing it to deteriorate. As you lose density in your jawbone, your remaining natural teeth lose support. This makes them shift out of alignment, increasing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. As more time passes, your teeth may become loose and fall out.
As you lose more teeth, you need to limit your diet because certain foods become too difficult to chew. This can lead to nutritional deficiencies. You will also see changes to your appearance because your facial structures lose support.
Dr. Kassem can restore your smile and oral health using a treatment that is right for you. He offers 2 solutions to fill the empty space.
- Fixed Bridge: A prosthetic tooth is crafted to match your natural teeth. It is held in place by attaching dental crowns to the adjacent teeth.
- Single Tooth Implant: Your implant dentist in Williamston surgically places an implant post into your jawbone. An abutment is attached to it to connect a custom-made restoration
What are Single-Tooth Implants?
You need an initial consultation with Dr. Kassem to ensure you are a candidate for dental implants in Williamston. CT scans of your mouth are taken to assess your oral structure and to pinpoint the precise location for your post. The post is surgically placed into your jawbone to replace the root. Over the next several weeks, your bone fuses to the post to create a stable foundation for your new tooth. After you have healed, an abutment is attached to the post using a second minor surgery. About 2 weeks later, your restoration is connected to the post.

By replacing both the root and the crown, you will enjoy several advantages you cannot achieve with a bridge:
