Single Missing Tooth

Why You Shouldn’t Ignore a Missing Tooth.

Every tooth plays an important role in your oral health. Once you lose a tooth, the immediate solution is to replace it with a dental implant, especially if it is a front tooth. But what happens when you lose a tooth that is not visible when you smile? The tendency is generally to ignore it.

Every Tooth is Important

Any missing tooth can have a negative impact on your quality of life, as well as dental and oral health. When we chew, a healthy tooth strengthens the quality of the bone in the same way exercise protects against bone loss. Furthermore, when a tooth is missing, healthy teeth tend to shift position towards the gap due to bone loss, affecting how our upper and lower teeth meet.

Problems from a Missing Tooth

This may affect how we place pressure on the teeth when chewing, and have an impact on surrounding muscles and joints, resulting in pain and various other symptoms such as headaches or migraines. Hence, each tooth plays an important role in ensuring that teeth in front of and behind it stay in alignment, and maintaining the health of the jaw bone.

Modern dental technology can restore your quality of life with a dental implant that is strong, that looks and feels like a natural tooth.

Dr. DiCesare Has the Solution That Is Right for You.

A ceramic crown restores any tooth that is destroyed or damaged. It is individually made to match the shade and contour of your natural teeth, so practically no one can tell the difference.

1. Restoring a damaged tooth: The tooth is ground down far enough so that a new crown can be placed on the remaining, healthy natural tooth structure. This provides a strong, natural foundation for the new crown.

2. Replacing a missing tooth: If you are missing one tooth including the root, the dental crown is attached to a dental implant. The implant serves as a foundation for a dental crown. This method does not affect your other healthy adjacent teeth.
