Dental trauma can sometimes be severe. Some patients suffering from a significant dental avulsion or knocked out tooth suffer so much damage to a single tooth that dentists like Dr. Askowitz and Dr. Paralta need to perform an emergency extraction.
After removing whatever remains of the tooth’s original root, we will suture the local gum tissues and treat any other soft tissue trauma in the area. Afterward, we will likely provide you with a prescription for pain medication.
After all the wounded tissues have healed we can help you understand the dental restoration available at Oneco Dental Care. In many of these cases, patients choose to have the missing tooth replaced via a dental bridge restoration.
This type of dental restoration consists of preparing two abutments by removing the tooth enamel from each of the teeth neighboring the void. The detin pillars left behind will serve as anchor points for your dental bridge.
Once it has been created in a dental lab, we will cement your dental bridge onto the abutments with a special dental adhesive. This will complete the dental restoration and allow you to enjoy the basic function of the original tooth.
If you live in Sarasota, Florida, and you have just suffered a severe dental trauma, you should call 941-462-4659 to seek emergency treatment at Oneco Dental Care.
