Single Tooth Dental Implants – Brandon, SD
A Beautiful & Strong Way to Complete Smiles
Are you missing a single tooth? You may have already experienced the ways that this can affect your appearance, but did you know that even just one lost tooth can impact your health, too? Unlike many other medical conditions that will get better with time, dental problems such as missing teeth will only get worse with prolonged treatment. Without replacing a missing tooth, you’re putting yourself at risk of the shifting of your remaining teeth, jawbone deterioration, and even additional tooth loss. At Wehrkamp Dentistry, we offer multiple options for replacing a tooth, and our premier solution is dental implants. Keep reading to learn more about the importance of tooth replacement and why a single tooth dental implant is your best option.
Single Tooth Replacement Options
We offer two different options for single tooth replacement: a fixed bridge and a dental implant. After examining your smile, we will be able to recommend the replacement solution that works best for you.
Also called a crown and bridge, we will use a custom-made prosthetic to literally “bridge” the gap in your smile and replace the visible part of your missing tooth. This requires the removal of a slight portion of your dental structure on either side of the gap. After, we will be able to mount crowns onto your natural teeth, which act as anchors for your dental bridge. The result is a sturdy restoration and a beautiful smile.
Single Tooth Implant
Unlike the fixed bridge, an implant-supported replacement restores your tooth from the roots up. That’s because a dental implant is a tiny titanium post that is placed in the jawbone to act as an artificial tooth root. Titanium is a biocompatible material, which allows your implant to fuse to your jaw, creating a strong and lasting bond. After, we can mount a personalized dental crown on top of your implant for a seamlessly complete smile.
Benefits of Implant-Supported Single Tooth Replacement
While any replacement is better than none at all, an implant-supported restoration can offer you advantages that you can’t get anywhere else:
