Losing a tooth to decay, infection, or injury can be painful and embarrassing, but you aren’t forced to live with a gap in your smile forever. Dental technologies have advanced significantly in the past decade, making permanent dental implants the gold standard of care for modern tooth replacement.
An implant is a prosthetic tooth root anchored directly into your jaw with a durable titanium screw. A crown attaches to the implant to replace your natural tooth structure. When replacing your missing tooth, there are many reasons to consider a single-tooth implant over other replacement methods.
Restore the Look, Feel, and Function Of Your Natural Tooth
Unlike bridges or dentures, a dental implant actually replaces the entire structure of your missing tooth. A titanium screw replaces the missing tooth root and fuses with the jawbone to become a permanent part of the mouth. Once the crown is affixed to the implant, you can chew, talk, laugh, and smile like normal. Your single-tooth implant will look so natural that nobody will suspect it’s not real.
No Replacements Needed
Implants offer the significant benefit of permanency. As long as your implant is placed by an experienced prosthodontist and regularly cleaned along with your other teeth, there is no reason your implant won’t last the rest of your life.
This permanency grants you the freedom to enjoy your life without any second guessing. You can eat your favorite steak, brush and floss your teeth, and smile as if you never experienced tooth loss at all.
No Complicated Surgeries
A single tooth implant is a relatively affordable treatment since it only needs to repair one tooth location. In fact, if you already have healthy jaw bone, your implant procedure can be completed in as little as one day.
Not all dentists are qualified to install implants. Make sure you undergo your implant procedure with a certified prosthodontist who specializes in full mouth reconstruction, like Dr. Tadros of Dental Implant Solutionz.
