A Tooth with a Severe Fracture Might Need a Dental Implant Restoration

Posted .

Tooth decay has the unfortunate ability to spread throughout and within a tooth. If you procrastinate professional dental treatment at Sedona Dental Arts, the tooth could suffer very serious complications.

As time goes on, the bacterial decay can compromise so much of the dental structure that the tooth becomes vulnerable to fracture. In a situation like this, Dr. Austin Babcock might be able to treat the tooth with a root canal and a dental crown.

If the tooth is severely fractured or a dangerous abscess infection develops in the gums, they might recommend a total extraction.

Once your gums have fully healed, they can then start the process of restoring the tooth’s presence in your mouth with a dental implant.

The process of placing an implant involves Dr. Austin Babcock installing a titanium dental abutment into the bone structure beneath the void. In time, it will naturally bond with the living tissues to fully replicate the original root of the tooth. Once this occurs, Dr. Austin Babcock can fit the abutment for a standard dental crown.

If you live in the Sedona, Arizona, area and you need to have a tooth restored, you should call 928-282-1514 to schedule a consultation with the dental restoration specialists at Sedona Dental Arts.
