Replacing a Single Tooth

Implants are the treatment of choice for individual teeth

A natural tooth is anchored into the jawbone by its tooth root. Tooth roots attach firmly to the jawbone and keep your teeth stable when chewing solid foods.

Three Unit "Bridge"

Traditionally, if you were missing a tooth or if one needed to be extracted, the healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth would be cut down and replaced with a three-unit "bridge."

Dental Implants - The Modern Alternative

Dental implants are the modern alternative. Instead of cutting down two perfectly healthy teeth, your periodontist inserts a dental implant into the jawbone to replace your missing tooth root. The implant becomes solidly fixed into your jaw bone (osseointegration). Your restorative dentist then places a crown onto this artificial tooth root that looks, feels, and functions like your natural tooth.

Quite simply, dental implants are the most natural replacement for missing teeth.
