Single Tooth Replacement Options

Each tooth in your mouth works together to promote your oral health and functions. As soon as a tooth is lost, serious complications start brewing beneath the surface of your gum tissue. The missing tooth makes it difficult to chew your favorite foods, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies, but this is not the only concern. You do not just lose the crown of your tooth but also the root. As a result, your jawbone is no longer stimulated, so it loses density.

As your jaw deteriorates, your remaining teeth no longer have the support they need to stay in place. This increases your risk of cavities, gum disease, bite issues, and additional missing teeth. Your dentist in Plainview will help to protect your smile from the complications of a lost tooth using a treatment that is right for you.

  • Fixed Bridge: A fixed bridge is the most traditional treatment because it is convenient and effective. A prosthetic tooth is carefully crafted to match the appearance of your natural ones. It is held in place by reshaping the adjacent teeth to place dental crowns on them. This option lasts for an average of 5 years before needing to be replaced.
  • Single Tooth Implant: An implant post, an abutment, and a dental crown replace the entire structure of your tooth, including your root. Although it does involve a surgical procedure, it allows you to enjoy the next best thing to your real tooth. It also has the potential to last for a lifetime with the right care.
