Single Tooth Replacement Options
Many people delay replacing a tooth because it’s only one. You will only have aesthetic concerns, right? Actually, there are serious issues brewing beneath the surface of your gum tissue that can cause long-term consequences for your dental health and your quality of life.
As you lose more teeth, it will be difficult to maintain a balanced diet because many foods become too difficult to chew. Now, you may experience nutritional deficiencies that harm your general health. Your facial tissues will also lose support, making you look years older than your true age.
Your dentist in Angier, Dr. Gong can help preserve your smile by filling the empty space.
- Fixed Bridge: More commonly known as a bridge and crowns, a prosthetic tooth is created using an impression of your mouth. It is customized to match the appearance of your remaining teeth to look natural. Dr. Gong secures it in place by bonding dental crowns to your adjacent teeth. Although this is an effective treatment, you will need to permanently alter healthy teeth. You will also need to have it replaced about every 10 years.
- Single Tooth Implant: A dental implant is the only treatment to replace the entire structure of the tooth, not just what you see when you smile. A titanium implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone. An abutment is connected to it to attach your custom-made crown. You will enjoy the next best thing to what nature gave you using a solution that can last for decades.
