Single Dental Tooth Replacement
Smiling has a positive effect on your mood and builds your confidence so you can move through your everyday life with ease. But, when you lose a tooth due to an accident, injury, decay or disease, you may feel the need to hide your smile from others, which can have a negative impact on your mental health and keep you from living the lifestyle you deserve. If you are experiencing this first-hand, a single dental tooth replacement or front tooth replacement is the right treatment plan to help you make the change to a healthier you.
At Buckhead Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we combine the best in beauty and dental implant technology to give you the smile you have always wanted.
What is a Single Dental Tooth Replacement?
A single dental tooth replacement is a type of dental implant that is made to replace a missing tooth to promote the continued health of the remaining teeth. It is a titanium screw that is made to mimic the root of your natural tooth. Once it is implanted, an abutment is attached and covered with a crown that is made to look identical to your adjacent teeth.
Why You Should Consider a Dental Implant
While there are a few treatment options you can explore for your single dental tooth replacement, a dental implant is the ideal course of action because it provides a permanent solution to tooth loss that helps to restore the health of your remaining teeth.
Sometimes you can lose a visible tooth and become in need of a front tooth replacement. When you are missing a tooth in a prominent location in your mouth, it can cause your other teeth to shift to fill in the gap. When this happens, these teeth become misaligned and can lead to issues with further decay, cavities, chewing, headaches and TMJ. This misalignment also causes your facial structure to change, sinking in your cheekbones and leading to premature aging.
In some instances, a dental implant can also help if you are experiencing fit issues with your dentures. With snap-on dentures, the titanium rod from the dental implant can be made to protrude past your gum line so that your denture can attach onto it, which helps to secure them to your mouth.
What to Expect with a Single Tooth Replacement
The process of getting your dental implant begins by scheduling a consultation. During this appointment, our dental implant specialist reviews your medical history, examines your teeth and takes 3D imaging and x-rays of your mouth to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
Once you are approved, we will schedule a second visit where our specialist places the titanium screw into your bone beneath the gum line. After the implant has healed, we take impressions of the implant and surrounding tissues to create the perfect fit for your abutment, which is the post that is used to adapt your customized crown to your implant. Once this has been mapped out, your final crown will be placed, and your beautiful smile will be restored.
