High-quality Single Implants for Your Missing Tooth
Missing a tooth can often be inconvenient and embarrassing, affecting your appearance and ability to eat and speak confidently. A missing tooth can potentially lead to other problems, such as jaw bone loss.
Single implants are designed to replace one damaged or missing tooth. A dental crown is connected securely to an implant that is anchored directly into the jaw bone for maximum stability and comfort. It stimulates bone growth and prevents bone loss as it fuses with the bone.
At Joondanna Family Dental, we offer single implants as an effective option for restoring a missing tooth. Our single implants are carefully crafted using only high-quality materials and state-of-the-art techniques to ensure long-lasting results. Our experienced team is here to help you through every step of the implant process, from initial consultation to final placement. We will work closely with you to ensure that your single implant meets all of your needs and expectations.
Advantages of Single Implants
Mimics the Appearance and Function of Your Natural Tooth: A single implant provides a tooth replacement that looks and functions as a natural tooth. It allows you to enjoy your favorite foods and smile with confidence. Our team of dental experts at Joondanna Family Dental can provide you with a single implant that will make you feel as if you have your own natural teeth again.
Exceptional Stability: Single implants are firmly embedded in your jawbone and do not need to be removed for brushing and flossing. They are easy to maintain and will not fall out. With Joondanna Family Dental’s single implants, you’ll be able to smile with confidence, knowing that your implant is securely in place.
Preserves Your Natural Bone Structure: The bone around the tooth root begins to deteriorate when you lose a tooth. Single implants integrate with your jaw bone and promote bone growth. Joondanna Family Dental is proud to offer single implants that prevents bone loss.
Prevents Shifting of Teeth and Alignment Problems: A single implant procedure involves the placement of a single implant in the space left by a missing tooth, followed by the attachment of a permanent crown to the top. Adjacent teeth are prevented from shifting, which helps to ensure proper alignment and prevent further damage. At Joondanna Family Dental, our dentists are well-versed in the placement and maintenance of single tooth implants.

FAQs about Single Dental Implants
An ideal candidate for a single implant is:
- missing a single tooth,
- generally healthy, with no serious medical conditions
- with healthy gums,
- in good oral health to undergo dental extractions and oral surgery, and
- with sufficient bone density to support an implant.
A bone graft procedure can be performed if the bone density is insufficient. In the same way, a person with gum disease can get treatment for gum disease in order to get a single implant.
Since the procedure is done under anaesthesia or sedation, it isn’t painful at all. At Joondanna Family Dental, we provide inhalation sedation with nitrous oxide (happy gas), oral sedation, and IV sedation through an external anaesthetist. Your dentist will determine what type of sedation is right for you based on your specific needs.
After your implant surgery, you may feel some discomfort once the numbness has worn off. It is expected to have discomfort around the implant site, face, and jaw for a few days after the surgical procedure. Your dentist will likely prescribe pain relievers and antibiotics for swelling and discomfort. Three to five days after the dental procedure, the swelling and pain will begin to subside.
The following are the risks associated with single implants:
- A nerve in the jaw bone can be damaged when lower teeth are replaced with implants. Fortunately, your dentist can detect where the nerve is by using X-rays and CT scans. This will reduce the risk of injury.
- When a dental implant is inserted in the upper jaw, it can protrude into the sinus cavity and cause sinus problems. However, these are rare cases.
- The pressure generated when you grind or clench your teeth can damage the implant, resulting in bone loss and implant failure.
- Implants can also fail if you don’t take care of your teeth and gums properly and don’t receive preventative dental care.
- Insufficient bite adjustments and infections can also cause implant failure.
