A hard blow to the face, automobile accident and an injury in the house can sometimes cause severe dental trauma. In some of these cases, emergency treatment for the soft oral tissues might take priority over the damage to a single a tooth. Sometimes this might require total extraction.
With prescription pain medication and thoughtful aftercare, your gums should heal quickly. When you are ready Dr. Spyridon Condos can then help you understand your options for fully replacing the lost tooth.
If you are averse to the timetable and oral surgery involved in a dental implant restoration he might recommend a standard dental bridge.
A dental bridge represents the missing tooth which will be fused into one single piece of dental work with a hollow crown on each end. It will eventually be anchored onto abutments created from the healthy core of the two closest teeth.
Once these teeth have been prepared Dr. Spyridon Condos will prepare a detailed impression of the area. This will be sent to a professional dental lab to guide technicians in creating the dental bridge.
Upon its completion, Dr. Spyridon Condos and his staff will install the dental bridge using a strong dental grade adhesive.
