Dr. Rodney Allen has been giving patients new and improved smiles for more than 20 years. When patients come in who have incomplete smiles due to missing teeth, he and his team of professional work hard to ensure they receive the care and compassion they deserve. With single tooth dental implants in Parker, replacing one missing tooth no longer needs to be a worrisome or hopeless cause. This stable solution is meant to restore smiles the permanent way, giving patients peace of mind and the ability to eat, chew, and speak with confidence. If a missing tooth is causing you to feel embarrassed or less confident in yourself, contact our office today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Allen.
There are two options when it comes to replacing a single tooth: a fixed bridge or a single tooth dental implant.
Single tooth dental implants in Parker North are made of titanium and act as the tooth’s root. This ensures your jawbone is continually stimulated and offers the strength and stability needed to hold up the implant and its custom restoration.
Dr. Allen will make a small incision in the gum line before drilling a small hole in the jawbone. Then, he will carefully position the implant in the bone before stitching up the area. For the next several months, you will be sent home to heal. A process known as osseointegration, which is the fusing of the implant to the bone, must occur in order for the implant placement to be successful.
Once you’ve fully healed, you’ll return to our office and receive the abutment and customized dental crown. This prosthetic will be matched to your natural tooth color, size, and shape, so no one will ever know you have an artificial tooth.
