A single tooth replacement is a traditional dental implant procedure. We use top quality dental implants available in the country for our patients. The procedure is straightforward. As only a single tooth is replaced, the appointment is quite short. Our team of dental experts work together to carry out the diagnostic tests to ensure a successful treatment.
The damage of the root and teeth is permanent and can only be treated with dental implants and crowns. The dental implant serves as a functional tooth. The components of the implant work together as one. Acting as a full functioning tooth, the dental implant offers minimal pain, shorter treatment and full functionality.
Single tooth replacement treatment requires about four visits to the dentist. Once the treatment is over, you will be able to carry on with your day to day activities like normal.
The expert dentists at North Island Dental Arts, will offer you numerous treatment options depending upon your condition. Single tooth replacement options are far better than other alternatives such as tooth-supported fixed bridge, Resin-bonded bridge, and more.
Dr. Dhar and his team will do the examination, take x-rays and prepare the area for the procedure.
Once the area is prepared, the dentist installs the implant. The implant works like a temporary tooth. It allows you to function normally and eat without any problems. The dental implants take a few weeks to fuse with the jawbone. Once this happens, you will be ready for the next step.
The last step is placing ceramic tooth permanently. The new tooth installed is permanent and no supplementary treatment is required.
The new replaced tooth will function like a natural tooth. It needs to be thoroughly cleaned just like a natural tooth.
A traditional dental procedure, tooth-supported fixed bridges require the neighbouring teeth to support a bridge. This treatment is a solid treatment offering good function and aesthetics. However, the two main disadvantages of the treatment are the loss of healthy adjacent teeth and bone quality.
Removable partial dentures are very unstable and loosely attached to the teeth. As it is a temporary solution the dentures affect both comfort and easy function. The partial denture is fashioned from plastic resin that does not create same results as a dental crown. One benefit of the treatment is the that it maintains the health of the adjacent teeth. It is also an inexpensive and easy installation.
A resin bonded bridge is a dental procedure known for its advantages. It is easy to install, fashioned from ceramic, and functions better than other treatment options. Along with this, there is no ill effect on the health of natural teeth. The only disadvantage is that resin bonded bridges are not permanent. With time the bridge will eventually wear off and would need to be reinstalled.
