SINGLE TOOTH IMPLANTS

If you’ve lost a tooth due to injury or disease, dental implants can rejuvenate both your smile and your oral health.

When a single tooth is missing the two most common treatment options are:

1. A traditional tooth-supported bridge (Three-Unit Bridge)
2. An implant-supported crown

When a tooth-supported bridge is used to replace one missing tooth, the adjacent teeth are cut down or ground down into peg shapes so the bridge has a support system. This process unfortunately destroys natural enamel and tooth structure but must be done in order to fit the new cemented bridge in place. Even though a Three-Unit tooth-supported bridge can be functional for many years, the compromised teeth (the healthy teeth cut down to support the bridge) frequently develop decay, suffer periodontal bone loss or need root-canal treatment. This often leads to future problems that will be more expensive and complicated to treat later. So even though the immediate problem of a missing tooth is remedied with a tooth-supported bridge, future problems with adjacent teeth are created.

An Implant-Supported Crown is far superior to a traditional tooth-supported dental bridge:

  • Adjacent natural teeth are preserved, not destroyed
  • Dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth
  • Dental implants are designed to remain aesthetically pleasing for a lifetime
  • The bone is upheld, preventing a visible bony defect
  • Cleaning is easier and more hygienic
  • Implants do not decay and you will never need a root canal
