Dental Implants

Though dental implants are a great option for restoring multiple missing teeth, it’s also a perfect solution if you’re missing only one tooth. In that case, the dentist can implant a device in the jawbone surrounding the missing tooth which serves as a replacement for a tooth root and an individual crown. This unique solution is referred to as a single-tooth implant crown.

Once in place, the implant crown looks, feels, and functions like your natural tooth. It’s cleaned and flossed just like your other teeth, and unlike bridges or other restorations, you don’t need special tools to clean around your new tooth. You will need to practice effective oral hygiene, however, and the friendly staff at Ferguson Dental Associates will be happy to talk to you about caring for your mouth.

For more information about dental implants as a replacement for a single tooth—or to make an appointment with Dr. Ferguson—call Ferguson Dental Associates today at (843) 571-4411.
