Tooth decay is often pervasive. Without timely, professional treatment it will slowly start to penetrate deeper and deeper into the tooth. As time goes on, the tooth can become so severely compromised that the root of the tooth and other essential structures cannot be saved by a root canal.
For a tooth in this condition, Dr. Zoya Yadgarov might advocate a total dental extraction. This will remove all elements of the tooth from the socket and suture the gums to prevent a dangerous infection from forming.
When you’re ready, Dr. Zoya Yadgarov can then restore the presence and full function of the tooth by installing a dental implant.
This involves inserting a post-shaped titanium abutment into the existing bone structure in the socket. Titanium is known to be biologically safe. In time, the implant abutment will fuse to bone structure of your jaw to create a strong anchor for a crown.
Once the titanium abutment has fused with the surrounding bone tissues, Dr. Zoya Yadgarov will take an impression of the area. This will be sent to a professional dental lab where a dental crown will be custom designed to match the impression.
The material used for the crown will be determined by the tooth’s function and location in your mouth. Gold and metallic alloy crowns are sometimes used to restore molars or premolars. For a tooth that is visible in your smile, Dr. Zoya Yadgarov might recommend a porcelain crown.
