A World Class Permanent Restoration
Single missing teeth can occur from tooth decay, injuries, accidents, or gum disease. Teeth are lost regardless of the patient’s age or dental hygiene. This problem affects more patients who do not adequately visit the dentist.
Teeth is important to our self-image, and losing a single tooth can be significant. There are solutions for missing teeth and they are available at the office of Dr. Pham. Tooth replacement treatments are among the most successful in the field.
If a tooth and root have been damaged, dental implants and crowns provide the best restorations. The dental implants function in the same manner as normal teeth and possess a natural appearance. You only need to make a few visits to replace a single tooth. There is a minimal amount of pain involved and you can return the work on the same day of the procedure.
The replacement process begins with an examination and x-ray to prepare the area. After the initial examination, the implant will be surgically inserted into the jawbone. You may wear a temporary tooth during this time to perform regular functions. It will take a few months for the implants to be fully integrated with the jaw bone.
The final fitting of permanent crowns marks the last step in the procedure. The crown is placed on top of the abutment and creates a fully restored smile. The new tooth will look and function similarly to natural teeth. You should follow up with excellent oral hygiene and ensure the gums are cleaned.
