Single Missing Tooth Replacement with Dental Implants in Louisville, KY

When you have a single missing tooth, the recommended replacement method is a single dental implant. A titanium post, abutment, and crown will be placed at the site of your missing tooth. The single implant would look and function similar to your natural teeth do.

Multiple Missing Teeth Replacement with Dental Implants in Louisville, KY

If you are replacing multiple missing teeth with dental implants, Louisville periodontists, Doctors Nelson and Lowy, may still recommend single implants at the site of each missing tooth, depending upon the number and location.

A dental bridge supported by dental implants is another possible solution to replace your missing teeth. With this method, implants are placed strategically along the route of the gum line and used to anchor your dental bridge, which consists of a combined row of crowns designed to look like your missing teeth

Traditionally, dental bridges would be held in place by using the natural teeth adjacent to the missing teeth as anchors. The two crowns at either end of the dental bridge are designed to cap your natural teeth, which are reshaped to accommodate the crowns. Utilizing your natural teeth is not an optimal solution, as it results in the alteration of your own healthy teeth. Also, this method of using your own teeth as anchors, wherein the dental appliance is suspended over the site of your missing teeth, will do nothing to stave off future bone loss at the site of your missing teeth, unlike implants.
