It’s possible for a severe sports injury or automotive accident to cause significant oral trauma. Sometimes these incidents can carry enough force to knock out or badly damage multiple teeth. If immediate treatment is not available or treatment of other injuries takes priority, it can result in the total loss of multiple teeth.
Once you have fully recovered from your injuries, you should consider scheduling a consultation appointment with Dr. Hoffmann and dental restoration specialists at Prosthodontics of the Carolina’s. Dr. Hoffman can help you understand your options for restoring the teeth and help you choose the best method for you.
In many of these cases, a dental implant supported dental bridge can prove to be the most effective method for fully restoring the function and appearance of your missing teeth. This treatment is very similar to a standard dental bridge, only it will be anchored onto a pair of dental implants.
A single outpatient oral surgery will be needed to install two titanium dental implants into the existing bone structure. Over time the implants will gradually start to fuse with your living bone tissues. This will effectively recreate the necessary root strength needed to anchor an eventual dental bridge.
If you are in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area and you have lost multiple teeth, you should call 704-364-3770 to set up a consultation appointment with Dr. Hoffmann and the specialists at Prosthodontics of the Carolinas.
