A Case of Severe Dental Trauma Might Result in Tooth Loss

Dental trauma can vary in severity depending on the source and the natural integrity of the specific tooth. Sometimes the damage from a blow to the face can damage the root or underlying socket structure of a tooth.

In a situation like this, your doctor might be able to treat a tooth by performing a root canal. This endodontic therapy will remove any compromised material while also rebuilding a structural abutment capable of supporting an eventual dental crown.

If the root has been severely compromised, your doctor might advocate a total dental extraction. Once your gums have healed, your doctor can start the process of restoring the tooth by installing a dental implant. This involves inserting a titanium dental implant into the underlying bone structure in the socket. Titanium is known to be biologically safe as it will gradually fuse to the bone structure of your jaw to create a strong anchor for an eventual dental crown.
