Missing a single tooth

A single missing tooth can cause complex oral health concerns as well at other health concerns. It can compromise your smile and make you self-conscious. From chronic halitosis to an increased risk of developing gum disease, a single missing tooth is both a cosmetic and oral health concern. The sooner you seek treatment for your missing tooth, the more effective and conservative the treatment will be.

Single Tooth Dental Implant

120697670A dental implant provides the most natural solution to replacing a single missing tooth. A dental implant can be used to replace a tooth that are congenitally missing or a tooth that has been lost due to accidents, tooth decay, gum disease or other reasons. Designed to mimic both the complete structure and function of a natural tooth, a dental implant helps to provide structural, functional support while enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. Lexington, KY dentist Dr. Doyle Freano offers a single dental implant when his patients are missing only one tooth. Dental implants are an investment in your health, confidence, and overall well-being.

The Single Dental Implant Process

A dental implant is a titanium post that replaces the missing root structure. Dr. Freano will be able to surgically place the dental implant in his Lexington KY dentist office. Over a 3-6 month period, the titanium post will fuse with the natural bone helping it to support the structure of the jaw and to provide a secure base for the attachment of a dental restoration.

Dr. Freano will then secure a dental crown to the healed implant. The crown will be custom designed to aesthetically fit your smile. A dental implant provides natural, tooth-like replacement options for a missing tooth. A dental implant will allow patients to maintain a normal oral hygiene routine and eat and speak with confidence. An implant also provides long-term support of the jaw bone to deter deterioration and recession of the facial structure.
