IMPLANTS & CROWNS
REPLACING A TOOTH WITH AN IMPLANT AND CROWN
Losing even a single tooth can have severe consequences for the rest of your oral health, and these consequences grow worse the longer the tooth is absent. Not only does the absence in your dentition cause nearby teeth to shift, the bite imbalance can also expose remaining teeth to excessive pressure. Also, with the tooth’s root missing, the jawbone that supported it becomes resorbed, losing mass and density as time goes by.
A LIFELIKE SINGLE TOOTH REPLACEMENT
Replacing a lost tooth with a dental implant and crown addresses all of the subsequent consequences of tooth loss by replacing both the root and the visible portion of the tooth. Replacing the root with an implant post reestablishes the stimulation that keeps the jawbone healthy. The implant post also supports the crown in the same way the root supports your tooth, which offers your prosthetic crown unmatched stability and comfort when biting, chewing, speaking, and smiling.
