Replace Your Missing Tooth ASAP to Maintain Your Dental Health

You’ll be understandably focused on your immediate recovery right after your extraction. But don’t wait too long to schedule a consultation to discuss possible tooth replacements. Nearby teeth may move out of place, which can affect your bite and cause other problems. Without a tooth root to stimulate it, your jawbone will begin to deteriorate.

To replace one missing tooth, you can choose:

  • A Single Implant Crown – A dental implant functions like a tooth root, keeping your jawbone strong and intact by stimulating it when you chew. This means you won’t experience the bone loss that typically occurs after an extraction.
  • A Dental Bridge – If you’d rather not get an implant, our dentists can attach a dental bridge to crowns on the teeth adjacent to the gap in your smile.
