A Tooth Lost to a Severe Cavity Can Often Be Replaced by a Dental Implant

Once the natural bacteria in your mouth have afflicted a tooth with a cavity they will continue to exploit the available dental structure. Without professional treatment, severe tooth decay can cause a severe dental fracture or the total loss of a tooth.

In some of these cases, the tooth can be treated by performing a root canal with a dental crown restoration. If the tooth was severely compromised or a dangerous infection has formed in the gums, Dr. [doctor_name] might recommend extracting the remnants of the tooth from the socket. Once this is done [heshe] will likely provide you with a prescription for any necessary antibiotic or pain medication.

Once your gums have healed and any infection concerns have passed, Dr. [doctor_name] can start the process of restoring the tooth with a dental implant and a dental crown.

To do this Dr. [doctor_name] will need to perform a minimally invasive oral surgery to install a titanium dental implant into the existing bone structure. As time goes by this special titanium material will gradually fuse with the surrounding tissues. Once this is complete, Dr. [doctor_name] can fit the dental implant with a dental crown.

Dental crowns are placed over the implant and are best for restoring a tooth lost from your smile. It can be shaded to perfectly match the surrounding natural teeth.
