Single Tooth Replacement with Individual Dental Implants
Losing a tooth can be distressing, especially when it’s one of the prominent front teeth. A gappy smile may look cute on a child but an adult with a missing tooth doesn’t quite have the same appeal.
Apart from the appearance, replacing a missing or damaged tooth is important to your long-term dental health as a result of changes in the bite that may otherwise occur to compensate for the lost tooth. Fortunately, modern day dentistry offers several tooth replacement solutions in the treatment for missing teeth.
SINGLE TOOTH IMPLANT
The most reliable permanent replacement for a single missing tooth is often a dental implant with a ceramic crown. This treatment is aimed to look, feel and function just like a natural tooth. The additional benefit of an implant is that surrounding healthy teeth remain intact, it helps to preserve the jawbone and stabilize the bite.
