Single Dental Implant for Missing Tooth Washington, DC

Having a missing tooth isn’t only embarrassing; it also affects your oral health. When you’re missing a tooth, bone loss and an unbalanced bite will occur which can lead to TMJ symptoms. Dr. Andrew C. Cobb offers affordable single dental implants in his Washington, D.C. dentist office for patients that are missing a tooth.

A dental implant is a surgically implanted titanium post that replaces the missing root structure. A dental implant restored with a dental crown is the most natural-looking and permanent solution for tooth loss. The dental implant process is now a routine procedure that offers the highest success rate and long-term oral health benefits.

A dental implant allows a patient to maintain a normal oral hygiene routine and eat and speak with confidence. A dental implant also provides long-term support of the jaw bone and deters deterioration or recession of the facial structure.

Single Dental Implant Process

Dr. Cobb will need to perform a comprehensive evaluation and examination of your oral health as well as your overall health to be sure a single dental implant is right for you. Then a personalized treatment plan is created that is customized to your needs and goals.

Working from your treatment plan, an oral surgeon or periodontist will place the implant into the bone. Over a 3-6 month period, the titanium post will fuse with the natural bone helping it to support the structure of the jaw and to provide a secure base for the attachment of the dental restoration. Dr. Cobb will then secure a dental crown to the healed implant. The crown will be custom-designed to aesthetically fit your smile.
