Single Tooth Replacement

Single Tooth Replacement With A Dental Implant

Typically when individuals are missing a tooth, whether a visible front tooth or a back tooth, they were faced with only one option; to grind down the natural teeth or adjacent teeth to restore the tooth with a ceramic crown. The drawbacks of this procedure includes:

  • Damaging otherwise healthy adjacent teeth to replace the missing tooth.
  • Potential for decay to occur on the natural tooth, under the crown, leading to the crown to fall off as well as a potential root canal years down the road.

How Single Tooth Dental Implants Have Revolutionized Replacing A Missing Tooth!

Now with the advancements in implant dentistry, a permanent single tooth replacement option is possible without damage to the adjacent natural teeth. Much like the previous tooth replacement procedures, a customized impression is made of your bite to develop a crown that is design to fit the look and feel of your individual bite and smile. The crown is placed on a single tooth implant that is implanted into your jaw bone to maintain natural bone growth and provide a permanent tooth replacement procedure.

The benefits of a single tooth dental implant include:

  • A natural look, feel and function to your other natural teeth.
  • The natural adjacent teeth no longer need to be ground down to support the replacement crown.
  • There is no visible jawline defect caused by bone loss.
  • Hygiene and maintenance is similar to natural teeth maintenance.
  • The risk of tooth decay and or a root canal on the replacement tooth is eliminated.

Natural Tooth Crown vs. Dental Implant Crown Replacement Techniques

A ceramic crown restores any tooth that is destroyed or damaged. Crowns are custom made to match the shade and contour of your natural teeth to provide a natural looking smile.

Restoring a damaged tooth on a natural tooth:

Here, the tooth is ground down far enough so that a new crown can be placed on the remaining, healthy natural tooth structure. This process provides a strong, natural foundation for the new crown.

Replacing a missing tooth on a dental implant:

If you are missing one tooth including the root, the dental crown is attached to a dental implant. The implant serves as a foundation for a dental crown. This method does not affect your other healthy adjacent teeth while maintaining a natural healthy looking smile.
