Single Tooth Replacement – Green Bay, WI
Invest in a Complete Smile with Dental Implants
No one ever expects to lose a tooth, but that’s a reality for over 120 million Americans. If you’re among those who have an incomplete smile, you have more options than ever to fill the empty space. At Dental Designs by Quandt, we offer the latest solutions for single tooth replacement in Green Bay. Besides a traditional fixed bridge, we can also replace your tooth with a dental implant. Dr. Quandt performs the entire process in-office, so you can enjoy start-to-finish dental implant treatment.
Single Tooth Replacement Options
Believe it or not, losing even a single tooth is more than just an aesthetic concern because you’re also missing the root. As a result, your jaw isn’t being stimulated, so it will deteriorate. Over time, your remaining teeth will not have the support they need to stay in place. As they shift out of alignment, your oral hygiene routine won’t be as effective, increasing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Eventually, your adjacent teeth may loosen and fall out. As you lose more teeth, you have a higher risk of developing nutritional deficiencies because certain foods are too difficult to chew. Your inadequate diet can lead to several new health concerns.
We can stop the complications of tooth loss and restore your confidence using a treatment that best meets your needs.
Bridge and Crowns
The most traditional method to replace a tooth is a fixed bridge. Dr. Quandt takes an impression of your mouth to create a prosthetic tooth. It’s then held in place by reshaping the adjacent teeth to bond all-ceramic dental crowns over them. You’ll enjoy a convenient solution that can last about 10 years before needing to be replaced.
Single Tooth Implant
A dental implant replaces the entire structure of a tooth. A titanium implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to act as a new root. An abutment is placed on the post to connect a custom-made crown. Although you’ll need oral surgery, you’ll benefit from the next best thing to your real tooth. Not to mention, your new smile can last for a lifetime with the right aftercare.
