What Are Single Tooth Implants?
Single-tooth implants are dental implants that are used to replace a single missing tooth. They are made up of a small screw that is implanted into the jawbone and a dental crown that is attached to the screw.
Single-tooth implants are more expensive than traditional dentures, but they are more stable and they look more natural.
The Single Tooth Implant Placement Process
A single tooth implant can provide a long-term solution for restoring the function and appearance of a missing tooth. Here’s an overview of the process:
Your dentist will assess your oral health, bone density, and overall medical history to determine if you are a suitable candidate for a dental implant.
During a surgical procedure, the dental implant (artificial tooth root) is placed into the jawbone beneath the gumline. The implant will serve as a sturdy foundation for the replacement tooth.
Over the next few months, the jawbone will naturally fuse with the implant through a process called osseointegration. This integration provides stability and support for the implant.
Once osseointegration is complete, a connector piece called an abutment is attached to the implant. The abutment protrudes through the gumline and acts as an anchor for the prosthetic crown.
A custom-made dental crown, designed to match the surrounding teeth in shape, colour, and size, is then attached to the abutment. This crown serves as the visible and functional replacement for the missing tooth.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
The lifespan of a dental implant can vary depending on several factors.
Just like natural teeth, dental implants require regular and thorough oral hygiene practices. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups are essential to prevent issues such as gum disease and infection around the implant.
Certain medical conditions and habits, such as smoking, can impact the success of dental implants. Good overall health can contribute to the long-term success of implants.
The quality of the dental implant itself, as well as the materials used, can play a role in how long it lasts. High-quality implants and components tend to have better longevity.
The health and density of the jawbone around the implant site are important factors. A strong and healthy jawbone provides better support for the implant.
Implants that are placed correctly and in a suitable location have a better chance of long-term success. Skillful implant placement by an experienced oral surgeon or dentist is crucial.
Regular dental visits allow your dentist to monitor the condition of your dental implants and address any issues early on.

I also found his front desk staff Fatimatu and Frances to be very friendly and caring. I would highly recommend this clinic.”
“I had my best dental practice at Moorooka Dental Care! I was very afraid to go to the dentist before I came to this practice. I had a really good experience at this clinic.

“I had the pleasure of having my dental work done at Moorooka dental care. It has been an amazing experience, Fatimatu at reception was extremely helpful. I was treated by Dr Furqan today and I found him very professional and gentle. I've also seen Dr Reza and Dr Zaheer and found them to be extremely good. I will highly recommend this practice.”
“Fantastic staff. I am a truly anxious patient, and the receptionist, Frances, who took my first contact call, I felt safe. Dr Reza Sunny was so patient with me, allowing me to do tapping when I was overwhelmed, never losing focus, totally understanding. Incredibly kind. Incredibly good dentist. I had cleaning, filling, and removal of a broken molar. Even though I may still get anxious I feel safe returning when needed.”
“This is my first time ever to have a positive comment about a dentist.
I was astonished about the successful outcome of my dental procedure. Thank you Casey and Dr Reza, what a professional and dedicated team. I mentioned to my partner about it, and we went back to the clinic and she made an appointment for herself on the spot. I do not hesitate to recommend to any one the services of Moorooka Dental Care. Thank you all for your friendly attention, starting from the reception all way to the manager. Looking forwards to see you again.”
“Can't thank the team at Moorooka dental care enough for an amazing friendly experience! I have now seen both Dr Reza Sunny for general cosmetics work including fillings to teeth whitening, clean up/check ups. Very good at explaining and being upfront with procedures process and Dr Zaheer who removed both my bottom wisdoms last week did an absolute fantastic job from start to finish. They even went the extra mile to call up and check up on me a few days later to see how my recovery was going. 10/10 for service and pricing. Thanks”
“Moorooka Dental Care is one of the best dental practices I've been to. The team is friendly, the office is modern and clean. I have had the pleasure to be cared by Dr. Zaheer and Dr. Reza.

I highly recommend them!”
