Single Tooth Replacement – Jonesboro, AR

Complete Your Smile with a Dental Implant

Every tooth in your mouth is essential to your oral health and functions. Not to mention, your teeth also influence your confidence. If you have lost a tooth, your dental health and quality of life were not the only things to decline. You also lost your self-esteem. Woodsprings Family Dentistry can restore a complete, beautiful smile with single tooth replacement in Jonesboro. Besides traditional treatments, you can also discover the benefits of a dental implant.

Single Tooth Replacement Options

Although it may only be one tooth, it must be replaced as soon as possible. Your jawbone deteriorates because it is no longer stimulated by the tooth’s root. This causes your remaining teeth to drift toward the open space, creating bite and alignment concerns. This increases your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and additional tooth loss. It also causes your facial structures to lose support, leading to premature wrinkling and sagging of your skin.

You can prevent the complications of tooth loss and invest in your confidence with a treatment that meets your needs.

  • Fixed Bridge: A fixed bridge, also known as a bridge and crown, is the most traditional option to replace a single tooth. Sarah Yarnell takes an impression of your mouth to carefully craft a prosthetic tooth to fill the space. It is held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond custom-made dental crowns to them. This treatment lasts for an average of 5 years before needing to be replaced.
  • Single Tooth Implant: Now, many people prefer a dental implant as an alternative to a fixed bridge. An implant post is surgically placed into your jawbone to replace the tooth’s root. An abutment is connected to the post to attach a custom-made restoration. With the right aftercare, your new smile can last for several decades.

Benefits of Implant-Supported Crown

Dental implants are the only treatment to replace both the root and the crown of the tooth. This allows it to offer exceptional benefits you cannot achieve using a fixed bridge, such as:

  • High Success Rate: Dental implants in Jonesboro have a 95% 10-year success rate.
  • Looks Natural: Your crown is crafted from all-ceramic material to match the appearance of your natural teeth.
  • Feels Natural: Your crown fuses to your jawbone to restore as much as 70% of your biting force.
  • Stops Bone Loss: The implant post stimulates your jaw to encourage new bone growth. This preserves your jaw’s density to stop dental drift.
  • Improves Oral Health: Your remaining teeth stay firmly in place to reduce your risk of cavities, gum disease, and additional tooth loss.
  • Protects Facial Structures: Prevents premature sagging and wrinkling of your skin.
  • Long-Term Solution: Dental implants have the potential to last forever to provide a cost-effective solution.
