An incidental blow to the mouth during sports or from an accident in the home can sometimes impact a tooth with significant force. In some of these cases the patient suffers such severe dental trauma that then only effective course of treatment is to fully extract the root from the socket and suture the gums.
Once all the affected oral tissues in the area have healed our dentist can help you understand your dental restoration options. In many of these cases a dental bridge restoration is the preferred option for fully replacing the missing tooth.
This type of dental restoration starts with Dr. Chad Latino examining the two teeth closest to the void to make sure they are healthy. Our dentist will then carefully remove the enamel layer from each tooth, which leaves behind a pair of dentin abutments that will eventually support your dental bridge.
When it is ready you will need to Chad Latino DDS PA to have our dentist cement in place with a strong dental adhesive. With consistent oral hygiene habits and routine attendance of your dental checkups your new dental bridge should restore the natural function of the missing tooth for many years to come.
