Replacing a Single Missing Tooth with a Dental Implant
A single tooth missing can make a giant difference in your quality of life. It can impact:
- The comfort of chewing and speaking.
- The alignment and placement of your other teeth, which can tend to drift into the empty space.
- The health and density of your jawbone.
- The risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and further tooth loss.
Dental implants are a comprehensive tooth replacement procedure that mimics the role of the natural tooth, from the translucent, esthetically unrivaled crown to the strong, stable, and bio-integrated implant fixture which acts as a tooth root.
There are many advantages to implants. Unlike dental bridges, there’s no need to manipulate and crown adjacent teeth to hold the replacement tooth in place. Implants use a biocompatible titanium fixture that is surgically placed into the jaw.
The fixture then goes through a process known as osseointegration, which involves the natural and organic generation of new bone tissue that holds the fixture in place. Thanks to this process, dental implants enjoy remarkable longevity, with clinical data showing success rates of up to 94 percent over a 15-year period.
Once the fixture is in place and the area around it has healed, we use an abutment to attach the crown to the fixture. Your crown is individualized to your needs and your smile by customizing the shape, size, and color to best match and align with your natural teeth. The results are so amazingly natural that your friends and family will hardly be able to tell you have a dental implant at all.
Why are dental implants so highly recommended for replacing a single missing tooth? There is no other treatment available in dentistry today that can provide the same range of benefits, including keeping your jawbone strong and healthy.
