Single Tooth Implant Restorations

Single tooth implant NYC appointments available.

Single Tooth Implant Restorations have replaced the traditional 3-unit bridge as the treatment of choice for single missing teeth.

With a 3-unit bridge, 2 healthy teeth on either side of the space have to be reduced in preparation for a set of 3 connected crowns to be placed over them, with the middle crown filling the missing tooth’s space. With a single implant, the adjacent teeth are not damaged.

Single tooth implants are now the preferred choice of treatment. We offer a variety of dental implant services, so make an appointment to learn what the best option is for you.
