Losing a single tooth can cause several different problems. Even if you adapt to impaired oral function, speech clarity, and appearance, you may still suffer orthodontic complications. As time goes on the neighboring teeth can start to turn and drift out of their correct alignment.
To restore the full function of your mouth and prevent future complications, Dr. Henry Espinosa can install a dental implant with a dental crown into the void.
This dental restoration treatment starts with Dr. Henry Espinosa surgically inserting a titanium dental implant into the socket’s existing bone structure. In time, the implant will completely fuse with the surrounding bone tissues creating an anchor point for the eventual dental crown.
The material that Dr. Henry Espinosa recommends for the dental crown will be based on the tooth’s location in your mouth. If the tooth was visible in your smile, he will likely recommend a porcelain dental crown. This special dental material can be shaded to match your surrounding teeth thus restoring the natural appearance and function of your tooth.
Once Dr. Henry Espinosa cements the dental crown in place it will fully restore the tooth’s function and appearance in your mouth for many years to come.
