Tooth extraction is quite common due to poor dental health and gum disease. Leaving the missing tooth space empty may not sound too serious, but the consequences of not filling in the space from the missing tooth can include:
In many situations, a dental implant is the most pleasingly esthetic solution for replacing the missing tooth. An all-ceramic dental crown or dental bridge, secured to a dental implant, provides a complete and beautiful solution for improving your smile. A dental implant takes the place of the missing tooth's root and helps prevent the above consequences.
If you have only one missing tooth, a dental crown on a dental implant is probably your best choice.
Like the natural root, a dental implant provides the foundation for a dental crown, in this case a new all-ceramic dental crown. A Nobel Biocare all-ceramic dental crown on a dental implant looks and functions very much like the missing tooth did. Nobel Biocare has a forty-year history of success stories using dental implants and dental crowns, and leads the dental implant market.

All-ceramic dental bridge fixed-to-teeth
If you're missing multiple teeth, your dentist may recommend a dental bridge. Dental bridges are useful in restoring your natural appearance and can assist you in eating and speaking properly. There are many different forms of dental bridges and partial dental bridges but, without dental implants for support, dental bridges typically rely on adjacent natural teeth as anchors. A commonly used dental bridge in adolescents is the Maryland Bridge.
A Maryland bridge attaches to the backsides of adjacent teeth, with little modification. Maryland bridges are perfect for children and young adults who are too young to get dental implants. Maryland bridges sit over adjacent teeth like dental crowns.
