Sometimes emergency treatment of dental trauma or a case of severe tooth decay requires a skilled dentist like Dr. Robert Marder to extract the affected tooth. This treatment of last resort is intended to help reduce any pain and allow the surrounding soft tissues to heal without risk of further infection. Aftercare measures might also include prescription medications which will need to be taken as directed.
After the local soft tissues have fully healed we recommend replacing the extracted tooth with a dental bridge. Executing this dental restoration calls for removing the tooth enamel from the two teeth closest to the void. This will leave behind a pair of small abutments consisting of the inner dentin layer of each tooth.
A detailed impression will then be prepared of the area. It will be sent to a special dental lab to guide the dental technicians who will produce your dental bridge.
When the dental bridge is ready Dr. Marder will secure it in place with a special type of dental adhesive. This will fully restore the tooth’s presence and physical function in your mouth for many years to come.
