Single Tooth Replacement
Award-Winning Implant Dentistry in San Diego, CA
Do you have a single missing tooth? Anyone can lose a tooth, regardless
of their age or dental hygiene habits—although people who have avoided
the dentist for extended periods of time are more susceptible to tooth
loss than others. Regardless of what caused you to lose your tooth, you
do have options and you don't have to go on living life with a missing tooth.
Though we understand the importance of our teeth to our self-image, we
scarcely realize just how much the loss of one tooth can mean to us until decay,
periodontal disease or an accident faces us with this dilemma. The good news is that through
the care and skillful work of a San Diego implant dentist, you can explore
the options available to you for single tooth replacement.
Replacing Your Missing Tooth: Step By Step
After you suffer damage to both a tooth and the root below, the best solution
is often the installation of a
dental implant and a
ceramic crown. Not only does such an implant function as a normal tooth, but it also
has a natural appearance. A few visits with your dentist will be necessary,
but pain is minimal and you will likely be able to return to work the
day after your procedure.
#1: Before the Procedure: We will take one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.
#2: Installing the Implant: We will install the implant and provide a temporary tooth while your implant
integrates to your jaw.
#3: Attaching the Crown: We will install your permanent ceramic tooth, which will stay there for life.
#4: The Final Result: You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural
tooth. No addition treatment is needed.
