The loss of a tooth can certainly leave you feeling frustrated with the impaired ability to bite or chew food. If the tooth was located at the front of your mouth it could also cause you to feel uncomfortable amount your smile’s appearance, while also influencing the clarity of your speech.
If you choose not to have the tooth restored in a reasonable amount of time, the persistent structural void could cause the neighboring teeth to gradually change their correct position. This could leave multiple teeth at increased risk of suffering from dental attrition and dental fractures.
Fortunately, Dr. Robert Madry and the dental restoration specialists at Robert Madry, DDS, General and Cosmetic Dentistry can often replace a missing tooth with a dental implant and dental crown.
This dental restoration process starts with Dr. Robert Madry performing a minimally invasive oral surgery to insert a titanium dental implant into the existing bone structure of the void. Then, the natural process of osseointegration will gradually bond the titanium with the surrounding bone tissues. This will fully replicate the structural integrity of the original tooth’s root.
When it’s ready, Dr. Robert Madry will create an abutment capable of anchoring a dental crown. Cementing it in place with a strong dental adhesive will complete the dental restoration process.
