Left untreated, it is possible for a severe cavity to cause the loss of a tooth. Sometimes Dr. Nicholas Kondon can treat a severe case of tooth decay by performing a root canal at his clinic in Concord, Massachusetts. In an extreme case, he might recommend extracting the remnants of the tooth to treat any pain, and prevent further infection.
Once your gums have fully healed, Dr. Nicholas Kondon can help you understand your dental restoration options. In many tooth loss cases, this calls for installing a dental implant into the void left by the missing tooth.
This is a minimally invasive oral surgery, where Dr. Nicholas Kondon inserts a titanium dental implant into the underlying bone structure. Titanium is known to be biologically safe and will gradually fuse to the surrounding bone tissues through a process known as osseointegration.
Once this has been achieved Dr. Nicholas Kondon can start the process of fitting the tooth for a dental crown. This will fully replicate the original tooth’s shape with an alternate material. Most dental crowns are made from gold, metallic alloys, or dental porcelain.
