Our team of experienced dentists offer different solutions for patients wishing to replace a tooth. When a patient desires a permanent replacement that mimics their natural tooth, we recommend a single tooth implant. Unlike a dental bridge, for example, a dental implant will replace not only the tooth but also its root. This holds a number of advantages for the patient, as it restores both appearance and function of their smile.

Benefits of Single Tooth Implants vs. Bridges
During your consultation, your dentist will present your different options for tooth replacement, such as dental bridges or implants. While bridges are a common solution for a missing tooth, our periodontists and oral surgeon recommend a dental implant for those who prove to be good candidates. By undergoing dental implant surgery, as opposed to receiving a dental bridge, you can benefit from the following:
- Surrounding teeth are not affected
- Preserved bone and gum tissue
- More aesthetic appearance
- Permanent results
While a single implant can be a highly beneficial tooth replacement, you must first meet with one of our periodontists or our oral surgeon to determine your candidacy for the procedure. During your consultation, we can determine whether an implant or another solution is better for reaching your goals.
