A Tooth Lost to a Severe Cavity Might Be Replaced by a Dental Bridge

Posted on December 29, 2017 by wlda

If you have a bad habit of putting off your regularly scheduled dental checkups at [practice_name]’s clinic, an untreated cavity could go undetected. Without professional intervention, the area of tooth decay will likely grow to compromise a significant amount of previously healthy dental structure.

If too much of the tooth’s root has been compromised for it to be treated by a root canal, Dr. [doctor_name] and [hisher] staff might need to extract whatever remains of the tooth from the socket. This is a treatment of last resort to help alleviate pain and prevent a serious infection from passing to your bloodstream.

Once the affected periodontal tissues have fully healed, Dr. [doctor_name] can start the process of filling the void and replacing the extracted tooth with a dental bridge.

This is a solid piece of dental work that replicates the original tooth and incorporates open dental crowns on each end. The dental bridge will need to be mounted onto abutments formed from the internal dentin layer of the two closest neighboring teeth.

If you live in [city], [state], and you have a severely decayed tooth, you should not delay in calling [phone] to have it treated at [practice_name]’s dental clinic.
