Single Tooth Implant

Contact Corbin Dental today to learn more about our dental services.


I only have one missing tooth. Can I get a single tooth implant?

Yes you can! When you choose to have your missing tooth replaced with an implant, this will avoid the need for a conventional dental bridge. A conventional, fixed bridge is no longer the ideal solution because of all the advancements in implant dentistry.

A conventional bridge is made up of two dental crowns, one on each end, with the replacement tooth located in the middle, the pontic. When a dental bridge is used to replace a tooth, it requires the use of the two teeth adjacent to the gap, called the abutment teeth. These healthy teeth will need to be significantly reduced to create room for the dental crowns. Two perfectly healthy teeth will be permanently damaged to replace one tooth.

While this solution has been sufficient for many years, a dental implant supported crown is now the most natural way to replace a tooth. Corbin Dental, with office locations in Oyster Bay and Bayside, NY, offers full service dental implants for patients missing one tooth, or more.


Unlike a conventional bridge, a dental implant will replace the tooth at the root as well as secure a replacement tooth. In this case, that will be a dental crown. By acting as a tooth root, the implant will provide stimulation for the bone, thus preventing bone loss.

The dental implant, which is a small, screw-like metal post, will be placed in the bone during a surgical procedure. Your Corbin Dental dentist will perform the procedure from the comforts of our Oyster Bay or Bayside, NY dentist office. It will need about three to six months to fully fuse with the jaw bone. Then a small piece called an abutment will be attached to the implant. This is the connector piece between the implant and the crown. After the soft tissues have healed, the final dental crown will be attached.

How do I care for my implant supported crown?

An implant supported dental crown is easy to care for, essentially needing the same care as the rest of your natural teeth. You will simply need to brush multiple times a day, floss around the crown at least once a day and visit our dentist office twice a year for regular checkups.

Do I have to replace just one missing tooth?

We highly recommend it. Leaving a gap along the jaw can lead to oral health issues. The teeth surrounding the void will begin to shift towards the void leading to problems with your bite. TMJ disorders are very painful and can interfere with your quality of life. Also, just one missing tooth raises your chance of gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath. Replacing your tooth with an implant supported crown is the best available solution because your new tooth will look, feel and function like a real tooth.


Call Corbin Dental today to get a single dental implant. We will schedule an appointment where your dentist will determine if you qualify for an implant secured dental crown.
