If you are reticent to have cavities treated, the tooth decay will inevitably progress to compromise an increasing amount of healthy dental structure. In time the poor oral hygiene condition in your mouth could leave you with severe cavities on multiple teeth. This could potentially result in the total loss of two or more teeth in one area of your mouth.
If you find yourself in a situation like this, you should seriously consider scheduling an appointment at Dr. James Hillstrom’s clinic. After assessing the state of the existing oral structure, he can help you understand your options for replacing your multiple missing teeth.
If you want a more permanent solution than the one provided by a partial denture, Dr. Hillstrom might recommend installing a dental implant supported bridge. This dental restoration process involves a minor oral surgery where Dr. he installs two titanium dental implants into the underlying bone structure. Once your gums have healed and the dental implants have integrated with the surrounding bone tissues, Dr. Hillstrom can start the process of forming two abutments capable of supporting a dental bridge.
If you live in the Plano, Texas, area and you have multiple missing or compromised teeth, you should consider calling 972.535.6647 to schedule a dental restoration consult with the specialists at North Texas Dental Associates’s clinic.
