Single Implant Crown
A dental implant is a titanium post placed into the jawbone. It replaced the root of the tooth. Over the implant, a custom abutment and crown is screwed in. If you are missing a single tooth, a dental implant is an excellent solution to replace it.
Usually made of titanium, it is the same material that hip and knee replacements are made of and very biocompatible. To place an implant, there needs to be sufficient bone in the area. Dr. Bennett will want you to get a CT scan of the area to access the bone. A thorough work up is done to ensure optimal success. Study models may also be taken as part of the preparation for the implant. Implant placement is a minor surgery, with little to no down time or discomfort. Once the implant is healed for 3 months, the final crown can then be placed.
- A dental implant restores your mouth to optimal function
- Stabilizing the surrounding bone, tissue and teeth
- Implants helps prevent further serious complications that can arise if the missing tooth is left untreated

My wife and I have been going to Dr. Bennett for over four years now. We both have the highest respect for her and her staff. I have had some very extensive dental work, including an implant and have been more than satisfied. We would both recommend her as a professional and a kind caring person.
I have been a patient of Dr. Bennett’s for over 10 years. When I first met Dr. Bennett, my teeth were struggling. Over subsequent years she has restored my teeth to an earlier conditioning status. Her expertise has only been surpassed by her gentleness and her integrity. I have happily recommended Dr. Bennett to other friends and family because she has always been a wonderful and thoughtful person and professional.
Dr. Bennett has cared for me and my family for several years. She and her staff are part of our health routine. We are seen for what’s needed, on time, in pleasant surroundings, by people who are well trained. Even an appointment for the dreaded filling is friendly, painless, and positive.
Dr. Bennett herself is an artist. She has saved some of my teeth, worked on long ago and failing, with great crowns and perfect color matching.
I would like to say “thank you” to Dr. Bennett and Staff for always being there for me – for my regular check ups and cleanings – for “fixing” my teeth (cavities and crowns) and always being gentle and caring for my needs and comfort. Dr Bennett has been my Dentist from the time that I moved here from Sherwood, Oregon. And, I have been very fortunate to have found her.
One of the hardest things about moving is needing to find a new dentist. We are so fortunate to have found Dr. Bennett five years ago. The office atmosphere is so calm and friendly. Dr. Bennett is so thorough in her exams, suggestions for preventions and craftsmanship that we feel very secure in our dental health.
