A Dental Bridge Might Be Used to Replace a Tooth Lost to an Untreated Cavity

The American Dental Association recommends that you have a routine dental checkup and cleaning performed twice each year by a qualified dentist like Dr. Jacob Shrayman. This simple appointment is essential for clearing away bacterial deposits, as well as catching early signs of gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer.

If you struggle with a dental phobia or severe dental anxiety and you give in to the temptation to forgo seeking professional dental care, an undiagnosed cavity could exacerbate into a severe problem. In time it could compromise so much dental structure that it leads to the total loss of the tooth.

If the problem is caught before a severe infection develops Dr. Jacob Shrayman might be able to replace the missing tooth by installing a dental bridge. This solid piece of dental work that will be designed to mimic the appearance of a natural tooth. It also incorporates a dental crown on each end.

The dental bridge will eventually be anchored on abutments formed from the two nearest teeth. Then an impression is made and sent to the dental lab where the dental work will be prepared from dental grade materials.

You will need to return to Jacob Shrayman, DDS when your dental bridge is ready. Dr. Jacob Shrayman will then cement it in place with a strong dental adhesive.

If you live in the Verona, New Jersey, area and you have recently lost a tooth, you should call (973) 791-4104 to have it treated and restored at Jacob Shrayman, DDS.
