When a rear molar is knocked out or lost to a severely untreated cavity there will not be a second anchor point capable of replacing the tooth with a standard dental bridge. In a situation like this Dr. Kenneth M. Schweizer might recommend restoring the tooth with a dental implant.
This type of dental restoration starts with a minimally invasive oral surgery where Dr. Kenneth M. Schweizer installs a small titanium dental implant into the bone structure of the molar’s original socket. This often requires full sedation, so you will need to arrange a ride home afterward from a friend or family member.
As time goes on the living bone tissues in the area will bond with the titanium material of the dental implant. This will replicate the root of the tooth. When it’s ready Dr. Kenneth M. Schweizer can construct a dental abutment capable of anchoring a standard dental crown.
This will complete the dental restoration process to provide you with a molar that fully replicates the strength and natural feel or your original tooth.
