Missing One Tooth Implant - Gramercy Park, NY
Discover the Benefits of a Dental Implant
Every tooth in your mouth is invaluable to your oral health, confidence, and quality of life. Losing even a single tooth can cause significant changes in all three areas. Thankfully, you don’t need to live with an incomplete smile. Nowadays, there are multiple solutions to replace missing teeth, including dental implants in Gramercy Park. Dr. Newman will fill the empty space using a treatment that best meets your needs and your expectations.
Single Tooth Replacement Options
Although a single missing tooth may not seem like anything more than an aesthetic concern, this couldn’t be further from the truth because you don’t just lose the crown. You also lose the root. As a result, your jawbone slowly deteriorates because it isn’t being stimulated by the root. Over time, your adjacent teeth will not have the support they need to stay in place. Eventually, they drift out of alignment, increasing your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and additional tooth loss.
Dr. Newman can preserve your remaining teeth and restore a functional smile using one of two methods.
The most traditional solution to replace a single missing tooth is with a bridge and crowns. Dr. Newman takes an impression of your mouth to recreate the tooth you’ve lost. It’s made to meet your exact specifications to fill the empty space while also blending in seamlessly. It’s held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them. This is a convenient and affordable solution that can last for 5 to 10 years before needing to be replaced.
Single Tooth Implant
A dental implant is the only treatment to replicate the entire structure of a tooth. An implant post is surgically inserted into your jawbone to act as a new root. An abutment is placed on the post to connect a carefully crafted all-ceramic restoration. You’ll enjoy a treatment that closely looks and feels natural while also having the potential to last for a lifetime.
Benefits of Implant-Supported Single Tooth Replacement
Replacing both the root and the crown allows you to experience several benefits that aren’t possible with a traditional fixed bridge, including:
- Over a 95% success rate and proven to last for several decades with the right care.
- All-ceramic material allows them to look natural to feel confident when smiling.
- Regain as much as 70% of your natural biting force to maintain a balanced diet.
- Preserves your jawbone’s density to stop dental drift.
- Improves your oral health by reducing your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and additional tooth loss.
- Supports your facial tissues for a youthful appearance.
- Doesn’t alter healthy teeth or rely on them for support.
- Cost-effective because it never needs to be replaced.
