A Severely Damaged Tooth Might Need to Be Restored by a Dental Implant

Posted .

Sports-related injuries can sometimes be severe. This is especially true if a vigorous athletic event causes a hard blow to the face. When a tooth is severely traumatized, you should not delay in seeking treatment at Dr. Sam Markzar’s clinic in Beverly Hills, California.

Sometimes the traumatized tooth can be saved with endodontic therapy followed by a dental crown restoration. If the damage is severe, Dr. Sam Markzar might recommend extracting the tooth and suturing your gums. With prescription pain medications and time, the pain should slowly dissipate and the traumatized tissues will heal.

When you’re ready, Dr. Sam Markzar can help you understand your options for restoring the tooth. One of the more effective options is to install a dental implant which will later be fitted for a standard dental crown.

Dr. Sam Markzar can usually do this in a single outpatient appointment where you will need to be deeply sedated. Once it’s completed, you will still feel some sedative effects for an hour or two. It’s wise to arrange for a friend or family member to drive you home and lend a hand for a little while.

Once the titanium implant has integrated with the underlying bone tissues, Dr. Sam Markzar can start the process of fitting you for a crown.

If you live in the Beverly Hills, California, area and you’ve suffered a severe dental trauma, you should call (310) 776-9119 to seek treatment at Beverly Hills Periodontal Arts and Implants.
