Even a single missing tooth can significantly impact your confidence and your quality of life. Although it may not seem like anything more than an aesthetic issue, it can also cause serious complications for your oral health. Now, you have more options than ever to restore your smile back to its previous state. Besides a traditional bridge and crowns, we can also replace your missing tooth with a dental implant. We’ll help you enjoy a complete, functional smile again.

Single Tooth Replacement Options

bridge and crowns

Every tooth is invaluable to your oral health and your quality of life because you don’t just lose the crown. You also lose the root, so your jawbone isn’t stimulated in the area. This causes you to lose density in your jawbone. Over time, your adjacent teeth won’t have the support they need to stay in place. As they drift out of alignment, you’ll have an increased risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and additional tooth loss. As you lose more teeth, it can be difficult to maintain a balanced diet because certain foods are too hard to chew. This can lead to nutritional deficiencies.

Your dentist can preserve your smile and stop the complications of tooth loss using a treatment plan that best meets your needs.

Fixed Bridge

Also known as a bridge and crowns, this is the most traditional solution to replace a lost tooth. We take an impression of your mouth to create a replica of the tooth you’ve lost. It only replaces the portion that’s visible above the gum line, but it allows you to maintain a balanced diet. The prosthetic tooth is held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them. This is a convenient solution that can last for an average of 5 to 10 years before needing to be replaced.

Single Tooth Implant

A dental implant recreates the entire structure of the tooth, including the root. An implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to secure your custom-made dental crown. This closely looks and feels natural while stopping bone loss in your jaw. Although it requires surgery, it gives you a solution that can last for a lifetime with the right aftercare.

Benefits of Implant-Supported Tooth Replacement
