Single Tooth Replacement Options

Generally speaking, people who want to restore a missing tooth often choose between two main options: a fixed bridge or a single tooth dental implant. Here is what you need to know about each of these common tooth replacement solutions:

Fixed Bridge

A fixed bridges consists of an artificial tooth, called a pontic, connected on either side to two crowns. Once the healthy teeth next to the dental gap are shaved down, the two crowns fit on top of these natural teeth and are cemented into place. The pontic in the middle now sits where the dental gap once was, effectively replacing the missing tooth. Modern fixed bridges look natural, restore dental function and prevent bite problems and other issues that can stem from missing teeth. 

Single Tooth Implant

Dental implants are fast becoming the most popular way to replace missing teeth in Texas and across the country. A small titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone, dental implants replace the missing tooth root structure and provide a sturdy base for an artificial crown. Dental implants are biocompatible and actually fuse with the surrounding jawbone through a natural process known as “osseointegration.” In this way, dental implants are able to restore not only a person’s appearance but also their chewing power to nearly 100%.

The Benefits of Implant-Supported Single Tooth Replacement

Single tooth implants offer a range of benefits that other tooth replacement options just cannot match. Here are some of the major advantages: 

  • Replace Full Tooth: Because dental implants replace the entire tooth structure, including the missing roots, they look, feel and function almost exactly like natural teeth!
  • Stimulate the Jawbone: Dental implants stimulate the jawbone to prevent bone deterioration. This keeps your face looking full and vibrant!
  • Preserve Natural Teeth: Single tooth dental implants fuse with the surrounding jawbone and do not require the support of healthy teeth to remain in place. In contrast, fixed bridges involve shaving down healthy teeth and placing crowns on top of them in order to replace a missing tooth.  
  • Simple Smile Maintenance: Dental implants do not require any special care or maintenance. Just be sure to continue brushing twice a day, floss daily and visit our dentists every six months for a routine checkup.
  • Long-Term Results: Invest in a tooth replacement solution that will last for many years to come. Dental implants can serve your smile for decades – or even the rest of your life – with proper care.
