Restore a missing tooth with a single tooth dental implant in Pasadena, CA
Not long ago, patients often felt like there were few natural-looking options for replacing a tooth if it was extracted or lost due to disease or trauma. However, modern dentistry advances have truly transformed how we are able to deliver dental care and patients can achieve incredible results with restorations such as dental implants. This versatile restoration option can be used to replace a single tooth without negatively affecting any of the neighboring teeth, and patients who are missing multiple teeth can also use dental implants or implant-supported dentures to restore their smile. At Pasadena Prosthodontics in Pasadena, CA, Dr. Christopher Marchack specializes in helping patients regain a functional and healthy smile with dental implants.
Replacing a single tooth with a dental implant
Simply put, dental implants are the “gold standard” when it comes to tooth replacement. If you are missing a tooth and want to replace it with a tooth that looks, feels, and functions the most like a natural tooth, then a dental implant will meet these criteria—and more! Dental implants:
- Fuse with your jawbone to in a sturdy bond to provide unparalleled stability and function
- Keep your jawbone healthy by providing the necessary chewing force stimulation to prevent it from degrading over time
- Do not harm the neighboring teeth through procedures such as crown placement – they are truly a one-tooth treatment
- Can last for your lifetime if you take good care of your teeth and gums
Dental implants have been extensively studied since they became part of mainstream dentistry a few decades ago, andago and have extremely high success rates and patient satisfaction.
Replacing multiple teeth with implants
For patients who are missing more than one tooth, dental implants can be used in multiple ways, including:
- Replacing each tooth, no matter where it is located in the mouth, with dental implants
- Using two implants to support a dental bridge of up to five teeth
- Strategically supporting full dentures with four implants that are specifically designed to help stabilize the denture and improving your denture’s fit and functionality
