Single Tooth Replacement


 

SINGLE TOOTH MISSING

Benefits of an all-ceramic crown on implant: 
When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth. The advantages of implants over a conventional bridges are:

1- The neghboring teeth do not have to be shaved down to receive the bridge

2- The implant is a single unit and can be flossed and kept clean, whereas the bridge is a connected unit and can not be flossed.

3- Having a implant in the jaw bone, will preserve the bone in the area, whereas once a bridge is installed, the bone starts shrinking where the tooth is missing.

4- The forces over the implant is directly absorbed by the jaw bone, where the forces over a bridge will be absorbed by the teeth holding it.

5- There is a risk of developing decay under the margins of a bridge in time. Implants do not develop decay.

Treatment: 
This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.
