SINGLE TOOTH MISSING

Benefits of an all-ceramic crown on implant:

When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

In this case, a so-called one-piece implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single unit, resulting in immediately full functioning teeth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.

•Immediately functioning teeth

•Excellent esthetic result

•Life long, stable solution

Treatment:

This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.

COURSE OF TREATMENT

INSTALLING THE NEW TOOTH – STEP-BY-STEP

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

1: Before the procedure

The dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure. 2: Installing the implant

The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth may be provided depending on the initial stability of the implant at placement. The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.

3: Attaching the new crown

The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional treatment is needed. 4: End result

You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean and




Tooth-supported fixed bridge

CEO

A traditional bridge involves grinding down adjacent teeth to support the bridge. It is a stable solution with good esthetics and function that is fairly easy to install. However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorption in the edentulous area, and sacrificing healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge.

Removable partial denture

Senior Architect

This is not a permanent alternative to a lost tooth.  A removable partial denture is made of plastic combine with metal it  can't create the same esthetic result as a ceramic crown. The benefits are few but do exist: adjacent teeth aren't affected. It is easily and quickly installed and relatively at a lower cost.
