model of dental implantLosing even a single tooth can cause devastating consequences for your confidence and your quality of life. Unfortunately, the complications don’t stop there. There are also issues brewing beneath the surface of your gum tissue, which can significantly impact your oral health. You don’t need to live with an incomplete smile. We offer multiple solutions to replace missing teeth, including dental implants in Green Lake.

Single Tooth Replacement Options

fixed bridgeEvery tooth is essential to your dental health. When even one is missing, you will notice changes to your smile because you don’t just lose the crown. The root of your tooth is also missing. As a result, your jawbone will deteriorate because it isn’t being stimulated. Overtime, your remaining teeth won’t have the support they need to stay in place. As they drift out of alignment, you have an increased risk of cavities and gum disease. Not to mention, they may eventually become loose and fall out.

As you lose more teeth, you’re at a higher risk of developing health issues. Certain foods may be too difficult to chew, so you might need to limit your diet. This can lead to nutritional deficiencies that negatively harm your health.

Thankfully, we can stop the complications of tooth loss by replacing your missing tooth using 1 of 2 solutions.

Fixed Bridge

The most common treatment to replace a tooth is a bridge and crowns. We take an impression of your mouth to create a prosthetic tooth to replicate the one you’ve lost. It is made to match the color, size, and shape of your teeth to blend in when you smile. The bridge is held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them. This gives you a convenient and affordable solution that can last for a decade or longer with the right care.

Single Tooth Implant

A dental implant is the only treatment to mimic the entire structure of a tooth. An implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to act as a new root. An abutment is attached to the post to connect a custom-made crown. You’ll enjoy the next best thing to your real tooth using a solution that can last for several decades with the right aftercare, like maintaining your oral hygiene and visiting your dentist regularly.
