We will create the customized treatment plan you need to replace your tooth and revamp your confidence.

Single Tooth Replacement Options

Although it may only seem like an aesthetic concern, the complications of tooth loss are greater than what you see on the surface. Losing even a single tooth can have devastating consequences for your oral and overall health.

Each tooth is necessary for a strong smile. When even one is missing, your jawbone will slowly deteriorate. Over time, your remaining teeth will drift out of alignment because they don’t have adequate support. This increases your risk of many new issues, like cavities, gum disease, and even tooth loss. As you lose more teeth, it can be difficult to chew many of your favorite foods, which can ultimately lead to nutritional deficiencies.

We can protect your mouth and body from the complications of tooth loss by rebuilding your smile using an appropriate solution.

Fixed Bridge

The most traditional treatment to replace a single tooth is with a fixed bridge, also known as a bridge and crowns. We take an impression of your mouth to recreate the tooth you’ve lost from all-ceramic material. It’s then held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them. This replaces the portion of your tooth that’s visible above the gum line using a solution that can last for a decade or longer with the right aftercare.

Single Tooth Implant

A dental implant replaces the entire structure of a tooth by surgically inserting a titanium post into your jawbone to act as a new root. An abutment is attached to the post to connect your custom-made crown. It will closely look and feel natural while also having the potential to last for decades with the right aftercare.

Benefits of a Dental Implant

Replicating the whole structure of the tooth provides a variety of advantages over a traditional bridge, including:

  • High Success Rate: Over a 95% success rate to last for decades.
  • Looks Natural: Custom-made from all-ceramic material to match your teeth.
  • Feels Natural: Regain as much as 70% of your natural biting force.
  • Preserves Jawbone: The post acts as a new root, stimulating bone growth in your jaw.
  • Improves Oral Health: Stops dental drift to reduce your risk of cavities, gum disease, and additional tooth loss.
  • Supports Facial Structures: Prevents premature wrinkling and sagging skin to look younger.
  • Cost-Effective: More affordable long-term because it should never need to be replaced.
