When a cavity goes without professional treatment from a dentist like Dr. Adam Rauzman the tooth decay can gradually advance to compromised the core of the tooth. As it spreads, it could cause an infection in the tooth’s root or the underlying periodontal tissues. This could also increase your chances of suffering a severe dental fracture.
If the tooth is too badly compromised for Dr. Adam Rauzman to restore it with endodontic therapy, he might recommend extracting the remnants of the tooth.
Afterward, Dr. Adam Rauzman might provide you with a prescription for antibiotics or pain management medication. This will help you remain comfortable while the periodontal tissues heal and address any lingering infection concerns.
When you’re ready Dr. Adam Rauzman can start the process of replacing the tooth with a dental bridge. This is a single piece of dental work that replicates the original tooth. It is fused to a pair of crowns that will be anchored onto abutments formed from the healthy cores of the two teeth neighboring the void.
Once it has been cemented in place with a strong dental grade adhesive, the dental bridge will restore the basic function of your mouth for many years ahead.
