Losing a tooth to a severe cavity, dental trauma, or a severe dental fracture can affect your mouth in many ways. Beyond the obvious loss of function, the void left behind can cause you to slur certain elements of your speech, alter your appearance, and even lead to complications in your bite pattern.
In a situation like this, you should schedule an appointment with Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor’s dental office in Ottawa, Ontario. There she can assess the related factors associated with the loss of the tooth to provide you with the most effective treatment and dental restoration.
This often calls for resolving any lingering issues with the socket and perhaps extracting any remnants of the root. Once this has been addressed, Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor can start the treatment process of installing a dental bridge.
This calls for Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor to form abutments out of the two closest teeth. This involved Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor using a drill to remove the tooth enamel leaving behind two healthy dentin pillars. We will then form an impression of the area which will be sent to a state of the art dental lab where your dental bridge will be created.
You will need to come in for a brief second appointment when your bridge is ready. It will then be cemented in place with a strong dental adhesive.
If you live in the Ottawa, Ontario, area and you have lost a tooth, you should call (613) 226-4562 to seek treatment and dental restoration at Skyline Dental Associates.
