Even one missing tooth can compromise the integrity of your smile. Missing teeth cause complex oral health and systemic health concerns. The sooner you seek treatment for a missing tooth, the more effective and conservative the treatment will be. Toledo restorative dentist Dr. Eric Hires offers dental implants, the gold standard in missing tooth replacement.
For most patients, Dr. Hires can complete the entire dental implant procedure from his Toledo dentist office for your convenience and comfort. Dental implants provide a comfortable, long term and permanent tooth replacement option for the support of your optimal oral health.
Single Dental Implant
Dental implants are the most natural looking and sustainable option for replacing a single tooth. Dental implants are a surgically implanted titanium post that replaces the missing root structure. Over a 3-6 month period, the titanium post will fuse with the natural bone helping it to support the structure of the jaw and to provide a secure base for the attachment of a dental restoration.
Dr. Hires will then secure a dental crown to the healed implant. The crown will be custom designed to aesthetically fit your natural smile. Dental implants provide natural, tooth-like replacement options for missing teeth. Dental implants allow patients to maintain a normal oral hygiene routine and eat and speak with confidence. Implants also provide long-term support of the jaw bone and deter deterioration or recession of the facial structure.
Missing teeth can create a whole range of health concerns. From chronic halitosis to an increased risk of developing gum disease, missing teeth are both a cosmetic and oral health concern. Dental implants are an investment in your health, confidence, and overall well-being.
