If you have a large cavity or other areas of tooth decay that have gone too long without a dentist at Sarasota Implant’s attention, it could have significant consequences. In some cases, the tooth might be so severely compromised that they need to extract the tooth.
Once your gums have healed, the dentist likely will recommend replacing the tooth with a dental implant.
Sarasota Implant’s dentist will refer you to an oral surgeon or periodontist for the implant procedure. The implant can be installed on an outpatient basis, requiring you to be deeply sedated. This means you’ll need to arrange to have someone drive you home afterward.
Dental implant abutments are commonly made from titanium, as it’s known to be biologically safe. In time the titanium will actually fuse to your natural bone structure to create a very strong anchor point for a crown.
Once your gums have healed and the abutment has solidified in place, your dentist at Sarasota Implant will take a detailed impression of the area. This will be sent to a dental lab where your final crown will be made.
When the crown is ready, Sarasota Implant’s office will call you in for a brief second appointment to cement it in place.
If you have a severely decayed tooth, you should not delay in contacting Sarasota Implant’s office in Sarasota, Florida at 941-256-2488 to explore your treatment and restoration options.
