Everyone fears losing a tooth because there’s nothing more embarrassing than an incomplete smile. Unfortunately, low self-esteem isn’t the only complication of tooth loss. Your dental health and quality of life will also suffer. If you’re among the 120 million Americans who have lost a tooth, you can rebuild your smile using an effective treatment. Besides traditional prosthetics, our office also offers the latest solutions using dental implants.

Options for Single Tooth Replacement

Every tooth in your mouth is critical to a healthy, functional smile. If you lose even a single tooth, you’ll experience several complications because you’ve lost more than just what’s visible on the surface. You’ve also lost the root. As a result, your jawbone isn’t being stimulated, so it slowly deteriorates. As you lose your jawbone, your remaining teeth won’t have adequate support. Over time, they will drift out of alignment, increasing the likeliness of cavities, gum disease, and even additional tooth loss.

As you lose more teeth, the complications will only intensify. You may struggle to preform simple tasks, like biting, chewing, or speaking clearly. You don’t need to let the consequences of tooth loss damage your oral health or your quality of life. We can replace your missing tooth using one or two options:

Fixed Bridge

The most traditional solution to replace a lost tooth are a bridge and crowns. We take an impression of your mouth to recreate the tooth you lost from all-ceramic material. Dental crowns are bonded over the adjacent teeth to hold it in place. This is an effective option to replicate the portion of the tooth visible above the gum line; however, you’ll need to permanently alter healthy teeth.

Dental Implant

A dental implant is a revolutionary treatment. A titanium implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to act as a new root. Your jawbone fuses to the post to provide a stable foundation for your restoration. This replaces the entire tooth structure, allowing you to enjoy a close replica of your natural tooth. Although it will take longer to replace your tooth, you’ll enjoy a solution that can last for decades with the right aftercare.

Benefits of a Dental Implant

Treating both the root and crown of a tooth provides several advantages not possible using a bridge and crowns, including:

  • Over a 95% success rate for a predictable and reliable solution.
  • Made of all-ceramic material to look natural.
  • Regain as much as 70% of your biting force.
  • Preserve your jawbone to stop dental drift.
  • Supports your facial tissues for a youthful appearance.
  • Doesn’t alter healthy teeth or rely on them for support.
  • Improves your oral health to reduce overall dental costs.
  • Easy maintenance and care.
  • Long-term solution that can last for decades.
  • Cost-effective because it should never need to be replaced.
