Single Tooth Implants
One of the most valued advantages of dental implants is their versatility. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or a full arch of teeth. When used as a single tooth implant, a natural-looking custom crown will be used as your implant restoration. The crown acts as your prosthetic tooth while the underlying titanium post takes the place of your tooth root. This allows your replacement tooth to function securely and feel comfortable above the gum line. Most patients are candidates for single tooth dental implants, as long as they are in good overall health and have enough jaw bone density to support the surgical implant. Regardless of where your missing tooth is located, you can trust that Taylor Dental & Implant Center will create a seamless and beautiful solution to restore your smile.
Replacing A Missing Tooth
Replacing a lost or extracted permanent tooth is important. Even just one missing tooth can compromise your smile appearance as well as threaten your oral health. It doesn’t take long before neighboring teeth will shift or migrate towards the open gap. This can disrupt your alignment and create tight spaces in your smile that are difficult to keep clean. Furthermore, when a tooth is missing, the jawbone does not get proper stimulation to retain its full density and height, which can lead to bone loss and premature facial aging over time.

You can trust that we will take ample time with you to discuss your concerns and evaluate your clinical needs before moving forward.
