Untreated tooth decay can potentially spread to multiple teeth. If you continue to procrastinate professional care at Pro Solutions Dental Group, this could compromise or even result in the loss of multiple teeth. One way to replace the presence of these missing teeth and restore the full function of your mouth is to have a dental bridge mounted to dental implants.
This might first call for extracting any remnants of the teeth from the sockets and addressing any potential infection with prescription antibiotics. If you’ve also suffered a significant decrease in bone structure, Dr. Jason Campbell might recommend a bone graft in advance of the dental implant treatment.
With any structural concerns addressed, Dr. Jason Campbell will start the implant restoration process. The two implant abutments can usually be installed in a single outpatient appointment, requiring deep sedation. You will still feel some lingering sedative effects after the treatment So, you will need to arrange to have someone drive you home once your treatment is completed.
During the treatment, Dr. Jason Campbell will make two small incisions in your gums to gain direct access to the underlying bone. Narrow channels will then be drilled into the bone and a titanium abutment will be screwed into each. Titanium is known to be biologically safe and it will eventually fuse to your bones to create a very strong anchor.
Once your gums have healed and the titanium abutment has fused to the surrounding bone tissues, they can start the process of installing a standard dental bridge.
