Dental avulsion is a technical term used to describe a severe oral trauma. It is often related to knocked out teeth, or a tooth that has been severely fractured. In some of these cases, a dentist like Dr. Christopher Louie can treat the traumatized tooth with endodontic therapy.
Unfortunately, there are some cases where the tooth and surrounding structure of the gums have been so badly traumatized that conventional treatment is counter-indicated. In a severe case such as this he might recommend extracting whatever remains of the tooth to allow your gums to heal without further complication. After all the traumatized oral tissues have fully healed Dr. Christopher Louie might be able to restore the tooth’s basic function by installing a dental bridge.
Anchoring the dental work in place calls for the creation of two abutments from the healthy core of the two neighboring teeth. To prepare these important structures he will remove the tooth enamel from each tooth neighboring the void.
Your dental bridge will be created in a professional dental lab by highly trained dental technicians. When it’s ready Dr. Christopher Louie and his staff will cement in place with a special dental adhesive. This will restore the tooth’s physical presence and function in your mouth.
