A Dental Implant Might Be Used to Replace a Tooth Lost to Severe Oral Trauma

Posted .

Sometimes an athletic injury, automotive accident or another trauma can impact the mouth and cause oral trauma. In some of these cases, the damage to a tooth and the surrounding tissues might result in the loss of a tooth. In some cases, emergency treatment might involve the extraction of the tooth, followed by a prescription to relieve pain, or swelling, or to prevent infection.

Once your gums have healed, the dental restoration specialists at Midtown Dental’s clinic can help you decide how you would like to replace the missing tooth, which may mean restoration with a dental implant.

If you choose a dental implant restoration Dr. R. Nab will need to perform minimally invasive oral surgery to insert a titanium dental implant into the healthy bone structure of your jaw. In time, this special titanium material will form a strong bond with the living bone tissues in surrounding it. Once this process is complete, the dentist can start the rest of the implant process.

If you are in the Houston, Texas, area and you need to have a tooth replaced, or you have suffered some other form of severe oral trauma, please call 713-481-5693 to schedule an appointment at Midtown Dental.
