Automotive collisions and sports injuries, and severe oral trauma can sometimes cause significant damage to the roots of multiple teeth in one specific part of the mouth. In some of these cases, the trauma is too severe for Dr. James Kinsel to restore the teeth with a root canal.
In a situation like this he might advocate extracting whatever remains of the dental roots to help alleviate the pain and prevent further complications. Then, he will likely provide you with a prescription for pain medication to help you remain comfortable while you heal.
After your gums and the surrounding soft tissues have fully healed Dr. James Kinsel can help you understand your options for restoring the missing teeth. If you would like something more permanent than a removable partial denture, he might recommend restoring the missing teeth with a dental implant supported bridge.
This treatment process starts with minimally invasive oral surgery where Dr. James Kinsel inserts a pair of titanium dental implant into the underlying bone structure. In time the implants will gradually bond with the surrounding bone tissues to create two firm anchor points.
Once this has been achieved he will take an impression of the area to start the process of creating a dental bridge. Once the dental work has been cemented into place it will fully replace the basic function of the missing teeth.
