What Is Single Tooth Replacement? Click to view video!
Teeth can be lost for a number of reasons, including cavities, periodontal disease or trauma. Did you know that by age 17, more than 7.3 percent of U.S. children have lost one permanent tooth; and by age 50, Americans have lost an average of 12 teeth?¹
If you are missing one tooth in a given area of your mouth, your dentist may recommend that you consider one dental implant to replace the root of the missing tooth and an implant crown to rebuild your tooth in a beautiful and natural looking manner. Compared to other treatment options to replace missing teeth, such as bridges and removable partials, an implant with an implant crown offers a long-lasting solution for a missing tooth and requires fewer follow-up office visits.
