Despite our best efforts to keep our teeth and gums healthy, most people throughout the Treasure Valley will experience the loss of a tooth during their lives. While the loss of a tooth can impact the appearance of your smile, it can also affect the function of your mouth. That’s why the Boise dentists at Summit Dental would like to provide you with the following benefits of a single-tooth dental implant.
If you are missing a single tooth, you may not know what treatment options are available to you. After all, crowns and bridges are often the most well-known tooth replacement option for those with gaps in their smile. However, crowns and bridges aren’t suitable for everyone. They also don’t have the longest lifespan and can compromise the health and integrity of your existing teeth. That’s why an increasing number of patients throughout the Treasure Valley are turning to single-tooth dental implants to restore the function and beauty of their smiles.
As the name suggests, a single-tooth dental implant is a widely successful solution for individuals with missing teeth. Dental implants are made up of:
Every dental implant is custom-designed specifically for a patient to match the shape, size, and color of their existing teeth for a completely natural smile.
