Replacing a Single Tooth
Single tooth implants (especially in the front of the mouth) are often the most difficult and require extensive experience to manage the challenges to maintaining the appropriate esthetics of not just the tooth but also the gum tissues around that tooth. Often a single tooth that has been damaged or needs replacement can be replaced with an implant and restored with a tooth on the same day. There are many aspects to replacing a single tooth that necessitate experience and training and the proper diagnostic techniques.
Options to replace a missing tooth include:
These are removed at night and rest on the palate and other teeth to support it.
These are supported by adjacent teeth, often requiring those teeth to be shaved down, and they require special types of care, as regular dental floss can no longer be used.
This allows for an independent tooth replacement that feels and looks exactly like the tooth being replaced.
