Automotive accidents and sports injuries can sometimes cause severe trauma to multiple teeth. In many of these cases, the damaged teeth can be treated by having Dr. Jason M. Peterson perform a root canal at his clinic in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Unfortunately, there are a few times when the damage to the teeth and underlying sockets is so severe that Dr. Jason M. Peterson recommends a total extraction.
Afterward, Dr. Jason M. Peterson will likely provide you with a prescription for pain management medication. This will help you remain comfortable while your traumatized tissues heal.
When you’re ready Dr. Jason M. Peterson can help you understand your options for restoring the missing teeth. One highly effective dental restoration is to have Dr. Jason M. Peterson install a dental bridge mounted to a pair of dental implants.
This requires a minor oral surgery where Dr. Jason M. Peterson inserts a pair of titanium dental implant into the underlying bone structure of the void. 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 fitting you for a dental bridge.
