Single Tooth Dental Implants
If you are missing a single tooth, a dental implant and a crown is the most natural looking way to replace both the lost tooth and its root. A dental implant looks and functions like a natural tooth while having several advantages over other types of tooth replacement. Unlike a bridge, a dental implant does not require the neighboring teeth to be ground down in order for a crown to be placed and this crown on the implant is non-removable. In addition, because a dental implant replaces the root, the jawbone is better preserved. With a bridge the bone that previously surrounded the natural root begins to deteriorate. An implant keeps this bone intact which can prevent both bone loss and gum tissue shrinkage. An implant is also much easier to clean as compared to a bridge, and unlike a bridge, will not be affected by cavities.
