Losing a tooth to tooth decay or some form of oral trauma that required extraction can certainly be distressing. Fortunately, the dental restoration specialists at Prosthodontics of the Carolinas can offer several solutions for this most serious problem. One of the most effective dental restoration methods is to replace the tooth with a dental implant.
This involves Dr. Ralph Hoffmann inserting a titanium implant post into the underlying bone structure of the socket. Titanium has a special property that allows it to bond with living bone tissues. As time goes by, this will create a very firm anchor for a dental crown. This will give you back the original feel and strength that you enjoyed from the tooth before it was lost.
We also factor aesthetics into the restoration process. It’s important for a tooth that is visible in your smile to look and feel exactly like the other teeth around it. This often calls for using a special dental-grade porcelain material to fashion the crown.
Once it has been cemented onto the titanium abutment post, it will restore the tooth’s presence, function, and appearance in your mouth for many long years ahead.
