Replacing a single tooth

 

Dental implants dentist Kyle

Benefits of an all-ceramic crown on implant: 
When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

In this case, a so-called one-piece implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single unit, resulting in immediately full functioning teeth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.

  • Immediately functioning teeth

  • Excellent esthetic result

  • Life long, stable solution

Treatment: 
This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.

COURSE OF TREATMENT

INSTALLING THE NEW TOOTH – STEP-BY-STEP

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

1: Before the procedure
The dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.
2: Installing the implant
The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you eat and function like normal almost immediately.  The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.

3: Attaching the new crown
The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional treatment is needed.  
4: End result
You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean and 

 
ALTERNATIVES TO AN ALL-CERAMIC CROWN ON IMPLANT

 dental bridge Kyle TX Tooth-supported fixed bridge
A traditional bridge involves grinding down adjacent teeth to support the bridge. It is a stable solution with good esthetics and function that is fairly easy to install. However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorbtion in the edentulous area, and sacrificing healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge.

Removable partial denture
This is not a permanent alternative to a lost tooth. It is unstable and loosely attached, which affects both function and comfort. A removable partial denture is made of plastic – a material that can’t create the same esthetic result as a ceramic crown. The benefits are few but do exist: adjacent teeth aren’t affected. It is easily and quickly installed and relatively cheap.

  • Very warm staff. Friendly and professional!

    Marquet C.
  • My daughter walked in with tears in her eyes so scared because of her last dental experience. The staff was incredible from the moment they picked up the phone. Dr. D was thorough and detailed. He didn't try to charge me for baby teeth that need fillings (they fell out with former dentist). He said they will come out in 6 months so continue to brush and floss. Most dentists would have jumped at the opportunity to fill her teeth.

    The office is so beautiful, clean and very up to date with technology.

    John L.
  • I love my teeth, so when I look for a Dentist I need to feel like they take my teeth just as serious. Many clinics lose site and focus on just money and forget we are humans. I came in a couple of days ago looking for information the office was clean, and peaceful. The receptionists were very knowledgable, presentable, and appeared not to be apathetic (something I pay close attention too). Receptionist Yavett Owens will answer any questions with medical ethics in mind. Thank you Kyle Parkway Dentistry for setting a standard!
