Every tooth is essential for more than just a beautiful smile. Each one is also vital to your oral health and functions. Unfortunately, if you’re among the 120 million Americans who have lost a tooth, you’re living with the challenges of an incomplete smile. You can fill the empty space and restore your quality of life using a personalized solution. Besides traditional treatments, we also offer the latest options using dental implants.

Options for Single Tooth Replacement

Losing even a single tooth can have devastating consequences for your smile because you’ll slowly lose density in your jaw. As you lose more bone, your remaining teeth won’t have adequate support, so they will drift out of position. Over time, this can increase your risk of several new oral health concerns, like cavities, gum disease, and additional tooth loss. If you lose more teeth, you may need to limit your diet because certain foods are too difficult to chew. This can cause nutritional deficiencies that harm your general health.

Not to mention, it’s easy to feel insecure about the gap in your smile. You don’t need to hide your mouth when smiling or taking a picture. We can recreate your missing tooth using the best solution for you:

Fixed Bridge

The most traditional treatment to replace a lost tooth is with a bridge and crowns. The portion of your tooth visible above the gum line is recreated using an impression of your mouth and all-ceramic material. It’s held in place by bonding dental crowns over the adjacent teeth. Although this is an effective option, you will need to permanently alter healthy teeth. On average, you can expect a fixed bridge to last for about 10 years before needing to be replaced.

Dental Implant

A dental implant mimics the entire tooth structure. A titanium implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to act as a new root. Your custom-made restoration is attached to the post using an abutment. It will take several months to complete your treatment, but it’s time well-spent because a dental implant can last for a lifetime with the right aftercare, like maintaining your oral hygiene at home and visiting your dentist twice a year.
