Dental Implant and Lifelike Crown
In many ways, losing a single tooth can prove just as devastating to your oral health as losing several teeth. The immediate damage may be less severe, but more people may ignore a single lost tooth, which can lead to consequences such as jawbone degradation, increasing your chances of losing more teeth in the future. In many cases, the best way to replace a lost tooth and mitigate its subsequent effects on your smile is with a dental implant and crown.
After inserting a prosthetic root, or implant, your jawbone will fuse to the implant post, making it a permanent part of your smile. Then, your specialist can secure a custom-crafted, highly realistic dental crown to the implant post, creating a replacement tooth that mimics the root-and-crown structure of your healthy natural teeth.
