SINGLE TOOTH MISSING

Benefits of a crown on an implant:
When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

  • Excellent esthetic result

 

COURSE OF TREATMENT

INSTALLING THE NEW TOOTH – STEP-BY-STEP

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult Dr. Igasaki which best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

 

   
1: Before the procedure
Dr. Igasaki examines the area.
2: Installing the implant
The implant is installed. The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.

 

 

   
3: Attaching the new crown
The final step is the placement of the permanent crown
4: End result
You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean and healthy

 


 
ALTERNATIVES TO A CROWN ON IMPLANT

 

  Tooth-supported fixed bridge
A traditional bridge involves preparing down adjacent teeth to support the bridge. It is a stable solution with good esthetics and function that is fairly easy to install. However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorbtion in the edentulous area, and sacrificing healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge.
  Removable partial denture
A removable partial denture is a prosthesis which can be inserted and removed at will (not cemented in). It is easily and quickly installed and relatively inexpensive. 
  Resin-bonded bridge
This alternative has some clear advantages: it is quickly installed, functions well and gives a high esthetic result. Moreover, natural healthy teeth are minimally prepared.
