Can We Salvage the Original Tooth?

Before we explain your options for tooth replacement, Dr. Moeti will evaluate the existing tooth. If he determines that it can be replaced with a lasting solution, this will be the first recommendation. For example, if the tooth is minorly chipped/cracked, he may be able to use dental bonding to repair it. On the other hand, if he determines that it cannot be salvaged, he will offer you some replacement options.

While it may be tempting to just leave the space alone after losing a tooth, this isn't always the best option. If you lose a tooth, it leaves a gap in your smile, which creates space for other teeth to move into, affecting your ability to chew, your bite, your facial structure and so much more. If the tooth can be seen, you have cosmetic issues to keep in mind.

Dental Implants

At Smoke Rise Dental, we understand that the best option to replace one single missing tooth is a dental implant with a crown. An implant is designed to mimic the tooth root. A titanium post will be implanted into your jawbone and the bone will grow around it, securing it in place.

Once the implant has healed, an abutment will be secured, which is a small stud that the crown is attached to. The dentist will create a custom crown that naturally blends with your smile. A dental implant is not exactly the most expensive than other options- but they do last much longer and give you the best replica of your natural teeth.

Dental Bridges and Partial Dentures

The second option we offer at Smoke Rise Family, Implants, and Cosmetic Dentistry is dental bridges/partial dentures. There are several options for dental bridges: cantilever bridges, bonded bridges, and fixed bridges. While these are long-lasting, they are not permanent. At some point, you will need to come back to have the bridge replaced, which increases the overall cost of care.

Partial dentures are a lot like bridges and since they are removable, they require more care. They may affect your speech and are likely to be uncomfortable to begin with, but you will get used to them over time.

Your teeth are needed to provide strength and structure to your jaw. If you are missing a tooth, the bone in that area will begin to recede, as well as your gums. Bridges and partial dentures don't replace the roots like an implant does and will not prevent receding gums.
