A Tooth with a Compromised Root Might Need to Be Replaced by a Dental Bridge

Posted .

Severe cases of oral trauma and untreated tooth decay can sometimes affect a tooth’s root. In some of these cases the tooth might be so severely compromised that emergency treatment calls for a total extraction. Aftercare measures might also include prescription medications that need to be taken as directed for maximum effect.

When you are ready you should consider scheduling an appointment with a dentist like Dr. Ned Todorov. After a basic assessment he can help you understand your dental restoration options.

Many patients missing a single tooth will choose to have it replaced with a dental bridge which consists of two dental crowns fused with a replicate tooth in between them. The dental bridge will need to be anchored onto abutments that our dentist creates from the healthy core structure of the two teeth nearest to the void.

A detailed impression of the area will help guide the dental technicians who will construct the dental bridge from durable dental materials.

Once it has been cemented into it place with a strong dental adhesive your new dental bridge will fully restore the essential function and physical presence of your missing tooth.

If you live in the Wichita, Kansas, area and you have a badly distressed tooth, you should call 316-633-4543 to seek treatment at Dr. Ned Todorov DDS.
