Barnt Green Dental Centre – What to do if you have a single missing tooth.

We would generally advise that when one tooth is missing the best treatment will be a crown that is mounted on a dental implant. This will work equally well for a tooth missing in the upper or the lower jaw.

A dental implant will look and feel exactly like your own tooth and the implants, the crown and your gums will be a strong dental unit. The dental implants will replace the lost root of the tooth and will be the post on which the crown is fixed. The dental implant procedure requires no grinding of any of the surrounding teeth so other teeth remain healthy and unaffected by the implant procedure.
