Are you missing a single tooth? Even a single missing tooth can cause complex oral health concerns, as well as overall health issues. 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 your treatment.
Dr. Doyle Freano offers single dental implants for patients missing only one tooth in Lexington, KY. His implant treatment is the most natural solution to replacing a single missing tooth. Implants can be used to replace a tooth that has been lost due to an accident, tooth decay, or gum disease. Designed to mimic both the complete structure and function of a natural tooth, a dental implant helps provide structural and functional support while enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. Dental implants are an investment in your health, confidence, and overall well-being.
The 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 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 the 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.
