Sometimes a severe oral trauma can impact your mouth with so much force that it shatters multiple teeth or avulses them from their periodontal sockets. In a case this severe emergency treatment might require extracting whatever remains of the teeth, before carefully suturing the gums and any other affected soft tissues.
After you have fully recovered from the injury, you should consider scheduling an appointment with a dentist like Dr. William Forero. There are several potential restorative treatments that he can provide you with to replace your missing teeth. Determining the best option will require a comprehensive examination.
In many cases like this a dental implant supported bridge can be inserted into the void. The restoration process involves a minimally invasive procedure to place the dental implants into the underlying bone structure.
Most patients choose full sedation which will require a friend or family member to drive you home while the sedative effect fully dissipates.
Over time the titanium material used for the dental implants will gradually bond with the natural bone tissues in the treated area. Once this occurs our dentist can prepare abutments strong enough to support a dental bridge. It will be cemented in place with a special dental adhesive to complete the treatment process and restore the essential function of your missing teeth.
