Chenet can fill the empty space with a dental implant crown in Viera. You will regain the next best thing to your natural tooth with a solution that has the potential to last for several decades.
Single Tooth Replacement Options
Every tooth in your mouth is invaluable to your oral health. When even one is missing, serious complications begin to brew beneath the surface of your gums. The lack of a root causes your jawbone to deteriorate. Over time, this makes your remaining teeth lose support. They begin to shift toward the open space, leading to alignment and bite issues while also increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. As time passes, inadequate support can cause the adjacent teeth to loosen and eventually fall out.
To protect your smile and to improve your quality of life, there are two common treatment options:
A fixed bridge is an affordable treatment that uses a prosthetic tooth to bridge the gap between your teeth. The device is held in place by attaching dental crowns to the adjacent teeth. This provides a quick and convenient solution; however, it needs to be replaced about every 5 years. In addition, it does require permanently altering healthy teeth and it will not stop bone loss.
Single Tooth Implant
Now, more than 500,000 people per year are turning to dental implants to replace their missing teeth. A biocompatible implant post is surgically inserted into your jawbone to replace the root. An abutment is attached to the post to connect a custom-made crown. Unlike a traditional bridge, it stops bone loss and can last for several decades due to the use of a titanium implant post.
