Replace a Single Tooth
Even a single missing tooth can negatively impact your smile’s appearance and function. Studies show that people who fail to replace a missing tooth have a 20 percent chance of losing adjacent teeth over the next four to eight years. At Dallas Oral Surgery Associates, Dr. Sherry, Dr. Wallace, Dr. Gannon, and Dr. Lee replace individual missing teeth with dental implants to create lasting smiles.
If a tooth must be removed, it can be replaced with a dental implant the same day. A small titanium post inserted in the socket of a recently removed tooth replaces the tooth root and anchors a custom crown. This can save you time in overall treatment and decrease the number of visits to complete your dental work.
Dental Implants mimic the appearance and feel of real teeth, so smiles look natural and function comfortably. Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant prevents existing teeth from drifting out of position, which can negatively impact bite alignment and contribute to dysfunction of the jaw joints.
You’ll enjoy a beautiful smile and preserve lasting oral health and well being.
