Though dental implants are a great option for restoring multiple missing teeth, it’s also a perfect solution if you’re missing only one tooth. In that case, the dentist can implant a device in the jawbone surrounding the missing tooth which serves as a replacement for a tooth root and an individual crown. This unique solution is referred to as a single-tooth implant crown.
Once in place, the implant crown looks, feels, and functions like your natural tooth. It’s cleaned and flossed just like your other teeth, and unlike bridges or other restorations, you don’t need special tools to clean around your new tooth. You will need to practice effective oral hygiene, however, and the friendly staff at Pacific Dental Group will be happy to talk to you about caring for your mouth.
For more information about dental implants as a replacement for a single tooth—or to make an appointment with Dr. Zavattero—call Pacific Dental Group today at (855) 572-7282.
Brush Your Teeth Daily!
For good oral health, brush your teeth twice a day with a good fluoride toothpaste!
How Old Is Your Toothbrush?
Replace your toothbrush every 3 or 4 months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won't do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
A Healthy Diet Makes a Healthy Smile!
For healthy teeth and gums, eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks. Go easy on sugary treats!
