Tooth enamel is an incredibly hard biological substance that is made of dense mineral crystal structures. This is what gives your teeth the strength to bite and chew hard and tough foods. However, there are still some extreme situations when a blow to the face or other oral trauma can carry enough force to crack a tooth. In an extreme case, the damage might be so severe that Dr. Robert Marder’s only effective course of treatment is to extract the tooth.
Once your gums have completely healed, he can help you explore your options for replacing the tooth. One of the best ways to do this is by having a dental implant installed.
Sometimes the extraction process also involves removing some bone tissues from the socket; if this is the case for you, you might need to receive a bone graft to restore the missing structure.
Our dentist will then will insert the implant into your mouth. They will do this by making a careful incision in your gums. A narrow channel will then be made into the bone. A titanium implant will be screwed into the channel in the bone and your gums will be sutured closed.
Titanium is known for being biologically safe and it will integrate into the surrounding bone tissues to create a very solid abutment that will anchor a dental crown.
Once your gums have healed and the titanium implant has been fully integrated into the surrounding bone tissues, Dr. Robert Marder can go about the process of installing a crown. This will fully replace the cracked tooth.
If you have a cracked tooth, you should not delay in contacting Robert W Marder DMD, PLLC at 212-265-8291 to have it treated and repaired with a dental implant in New City, New York.
