Tooth Replacement Options Available at Image Dental

When replacing a tooth, there are many factors to consider, and that will determine which treatment is the best option for your specific situation. At Image Dental, we know that no two patients are the same, and we help patients to make an informed decision on which single tooth replacement is right for them. We will consider the following aspects to determine the appropriate treatment.

  • Patient’s budget
  • Location of the missing tooth
  • Quality of remaining teeth
  • What fits the patient’s long term needs

During your initial consultation, we will discuss all of these factors. Because not every treatment is right for everyone, it’s essential that we know as much as we can about your overall dental health. If you haven’t visited the dentist in a while, we may perform an examination along with taking a digital x-ray to gain a full understanding of what is needed to give you not only a beautiful smile but a healthy one too.

Tooth Replacement Services

Our office offers three different types of single tooth replacement. Each provides a certain amount of advantages, and some downsides, but all work to fill a gap in the smile.

Single Tooth Replacement With Implant

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a surgically installed post that acts as the support for a restorative dental fixture. In cases where a patient has a single tooth missing a dental implant is placed in the jawbone, and a restorative crown is placed.

With dental implants, patients get a permanent solution to their missing teeth. One of the best features of having a dental implant installed is it can prevent bone loss allowing for different restorations to be used down the road. For instance, if you have other tooth loss next to the artificial tooth, the crown can be removed a dental implant supported bridge can be used. Implants are versatile and are the most natural feeling of the tooth replacement options.

Single Tooth Bridge

Dental Bridge

Brides will ‘bridge’ the gap. The adjacent healthy teeth support them. The restorative crown will be snuggly fit into place.

One of the main drawbacks to having a bridge fitted is it can damage the teeth next to the gap. Shaving the healthy teeth may be required to bond the bridge into place, which can lead to tooth decay.

Dental bridges are an excellent option for those that want an affordable solution to missing teeth that will last up to 10 years or more.

Partial Dentures For Single Tooth Replacement

Single Tooth Denture

The most affordable option for tooth replacements is single tooth dentures. These consist of a crown, artificial palate, and brackets.

With partial dentures, wears have a removable choice that is easy to clean. A partial denture will use healthy teeth as the support for the artificial tooth.

However, these are typically the most uncomfortable option of the three. Dentures will rest on the gum line, which can lead to bone loss over time.

Why Choose Single Tooth Replacement?

There are a few reasons to consider having a single tooth replacement done, other than improving the appearance of your smile. Sure having a full set of teeth is one of the best features of choosing a treatment option, but it isn’t the only factor to consider.

Whenever there is a gap in between teeth, it will allow for moving and shifting of the remaining teeth. If you have had a missing tooth for a while, you have probably noticed a change in your other teeth. They may have started to be somewhat crooked, for instance. Because there is an area where the teeth can move to, they will.

Missing Just a Single Tooth Can Be Devastating

No matter how the tooth has gone missing, be it an accident, or had to be extracted due to excessive decay, it can be frustrating. You may not like your smile anymore. If it is a front tooth missing you could be worried that, the missing tooth is all anyone sees. This can affect anyone’s self-esteem and confidence.

On top of a tooth missing, if you leave it untreated for too long, it can affect the entire arch of your mouth. The remaining teeth can shift, and the straightness of the teeth will be in jeopardy. While you wouldn’t think so, a missing tooth can also cause premature tooth decay in the other teeth too. We recommend that patients have a replacement put in as soon as possible to prevent these negative results.
