Sports injuries and automobile accidents can potentially cause severe oral trauma. When this happens, a tooth can be knocked out or so severely damaged that it needs to be extracted. Once your mouth has fully healed Dr. Debra Higham can help you understand your dental restoration options.

One of the most effective methods is to have a Dr. Debra Higham restore the tooth with a dental implant fitted with a dental crown.

Dr. Debra Higham can insert the titanium dental implant into the existing dental socket in a single outpatient appointment. This calls for making a careful incision in your gums. Dr. Debra Higham will then make a narrow channel in the underlying bone. A titanium implant is then screwed into place and your gums will be sutured.

Titanium is known for being biologically inert and will gradually bond with the surrounding bone tissues. This natural process, known as osseointegration, will replicate the original root of the tooth. Once this happens, Dr. Debra Higham can start the process of fitting you for a dental crown.

Once it has been installed, the fully restored tooth will serve you for many years to come.

If you live in the Jupiter, Florida, area and you have lost a tooth to a severe oral trauma, you should call 561-746-8095 to schedule a dental restoration consultation at Dr. Higham & Dr. Sauchelli.
