Single Tooth Replacement
It is easy to understand why single tooth implants have enormous benefits. Dental implants can replace a single tooth so patients no longer have to receive removable or fixed bridges. This is advantageous because it eliminates the need to “cut-down” neighboring healthy teeth to replace a single tooth.
Our oral hygiene is the same afterwards, and there is no need for difficult floss threaders to clean with as is needed with conventional bridgework. Single tooth replacement is often the most predictable way to deliver the high degree of esthetics desired by our patients.
The dental implant acts as a tooth root on which your restorative doctor will place a crown, also known as a cap. Dr. Culley has experience in placing dental implants since 1995 and has valuable experience in implant restoration, which every implant surgeon needs.
There are also many area dentists and their family members that have our implants functioning in their mouths right now. That is a fact in which we take extreme pride.
With tremendous advances in implant strength and stability, in many cases, a hopeless tooth can be removed and replaced with a dental implant in the same visit. This prevents the patient from enduring multiple procedures.
It is often possible to receive your final restoration in as little as six weeks (thanks to improved bio-engineering of implant surfaces) where as a few years ago it was as long as 6 months to a year.
