Single Tooth Implant – Naples, FL
Fill the Space of Your Missing Tooth
You never thought it would happen to you, but you’ve lost a tooth. Whether from decay, disease, or injury, it’s easy to feel embarrassed by your incomplete smile. Although it may only be a single tooth, it’s best to have it replaced quickly. Dr. Skupny provides the latest solutions for tooth replacement. In addition to traditional methods, he also works with a network of reputable professionals to treat missing teeth with dental implants in Naples.
Single Tooth Replacement Options
Although a single missing tooth may not seem like anything more than an aesthetic concern, there are complications brewing beneath the surface that you cannot see. You are slowly losing density in your jawbone because it isn’t being stimulated by the root. Over time, your remaining teeth will lose the support they need to stay in place. They will shift out of alignment, increasing your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and additional missing teeth.
With each tooth you lose, it will be more difficult to chew certain foods. This can make you limit the foods you eat, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies over time. You can protect your mouth and body from the complications of tooth loss using a solution that meets your needs.
Your dentist in Naples, Dr. Skupny takes an impression of your mouth to replicate the tooth you’ve lost. It’s made to match the appearance of your natural ones to blend in when you smile. It’s held in place by altering the adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them. You’ll enjoy a convenient solution that can last 5 to 7 years before needing to be replaced.
Single Tooth Implant
Unlike a fixed bridge, a dental implant replaces the entire structure of your tooth. An implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to act as a new root. An abutment is placed on the post to connect a custom-made dental crown. Although it may take longer to replace your tooth, you’ll enjoy a solution that can last for a lifetime.
Benefits of a Dental Implant
Replacing the entire structure of your tooth allows you to enjoy a variety of benefits that can’t be matched with a fixed bridge, including:
- Over a 95% success rate to last for several decades.
- All-ceramic material makes your crown look like a real tooth.
- Restore as much as 70% of your natural biting force.
- Stimulate your jaw to preserve your bone’s density.
- Stops dental drift to reduce your risk of cavities, gum disease, and additional tooth loss.
- Supports your facial tissues for a youthful appearance.
- Doesn’t permanently alter healthy teeth.
- Cost-effective because it should never need to be replaced with the right aftercare.
