Benefits of Replacing a Single Tooth
While many individuals focus on the appearance aspect of a missing tooth, and we completely understand, there is more to missing a tooth than just a gap in your smile. We do address the concerns of appearance and want our patients to be happy with the presentation, but also realize a single missing tooth can do more damage to the remaining teeth.
One of the worst places to lose a tooth is in the front. Because these are the most noticeable teeth, it can cause a great deal of stress for the individual. They may not even want to smile anymore because of tooth loss. With tooth replacement, their world will suddenly change, and they can get back to being happy.
Even with just one missing tooth, your teeth can shift. This can cause a great deal of concern with the bite. Teeth can become crooked, or even overlap creating an overbite or underbite. The use of a replacement will help keep other teeth from shifting out of place.
A missing tooth can also cause other teeth to decay prematurely. For these reasons, it is essential to consider replacement options early. Tooth decay will never get better unless corrected by your dentist. When left untreated, the deterioration can get so bad that extraction may be necessary. This is one instance that leaves patients with a missing tooth. But there are corrections available, and some that can be done the same day as your extraction appointment. If you are needing to have a tooth replaced because of excessive tooth decay, or you have had an injury to your mouth that resulted in tooth loss, there are options available. We currently offer three unique options for single tooth replacement.
Single Tooth Replacement Services
Single Tooth Dental Implant
Dental implants have quickly become one of the most popular options for single tooth replacement. A dental implant is a surgical procedure that places a strong titanium post into the jawbone. We then use this post to fit a single restorative crown on.
Dr. Toorani will shape the crown to match your existing teeth, in terms of size, shape, and other characteristics for a more natural looking replacement tooth. One of the fantastic reasons to choose dental implants, if you are a good candidate, is most patients that have them won’t notice that they aren’t even their real teeth.
Dental Bridge (not implant supported)
A bridge can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. Bridges often are fixed into place by your dentist. The teeth next to the missing tooth will have crowns placed on them to support the artificial tooth called a pontic.
Bridges can be done in a few ways, and some involve shaving the adjoining teeth. This isn’t always a suitable solution if you have healthy teeth next to the gap. A bridge literally bridges the hole where a patient has missing teeth.
Single Tooth Denture (Partial)
A single tooth denture is removable dental hardware that will replace a missing tooth. This is the least expensive option for replacement. Using metal brackets on healthy teeth, a replacement tooth can be secured into place.
The denture will also consist of a palate the fits snuggly behind the teeth. These aren’t the most comfortable option for patients, but they are removable, which can allow for more natural cleaning.
Even Missing One Tooth Can Affect Your Confidence
A missing tooth no matter how it happens can make anyone feel like it’s the end of the world. Perhaps you have had beautiful, healthy teeth all your life, and an accident caused you to lose a tooth. Or maybe you had to have one removed due to extreme decay, and the tooth couldn’t be salvaged. While no one wants to go through these things, they can happen. If they do, you aren’t alone. Dental Oasis of Orange County is here to get your smile back to the way it used to be. No matter if you choose a dental implant with a crown, or a removable denture, our team is dedicated to giving you the results you desire.
