Single Tooth Replacement Options
Nowadays, dental offices offer more than one option for fixing various dental issues and a missing tooth is no different. While some patients prefer the surgical method (dental implant), others are more keen to a less invasive option (fixed bridge).
Using your natural, healthy teeth that live on either side of the missing tooth, our team will file these teeth down and use them as anchors for your dental bridge. This prosthetic will consist of three dental crowns that are fused together to create a bridge. The two crowns on the outside will fit snugly over your regular teeth while the one in the middle will sit on top of your gums to restore the look of your smile.
Single Tooth Implant
With a single tooth implant, we will leave your natural teeth alone and make a small incision in the gums where the tooth is missing. Carefully placing the individual implant into your jawbone, we will close up the area and allow you to spend the next 3-6 months healing at home. The bone, implant, and surrounding tissues will need to fuse together in a process known as osseointegration. Once you’ve fully healed, you’ll return to our office to have your abutment and a custom-made dental crown put into place.
