Sometimes a sports injury can result in a hard blow to the face that’s capable of knocking multiple teeth out. If the teeth or underlying dental sockets have been too traumatized for treatment by a root canal, Dr. Anderson Lane might recommend extracting the root remnants.
This will help reduce the pain and allow your gums to heal. To aid in this effort Dr. Anderson Lane might also provide you with a prescription for pain medication to help your gums heal comfortably.
When you’re ready he can help replace the basic function of your missing teeth by providing you with a removable partial denture. This special type of dental appliance will be designed to mimic the basic appearance and function of your teeth.
It includes a pink base that looks very similar to natural gum tissues. Depending on the partial denture’s location in your mouth, the unit might also include interlocking wires to help hold it in place.
The completed partial denture should fit snugly with the underlying structure of your gums. However, you might want to also apply a small bead of American Dental Association approved denture adhesive. This will provide additional hold and might also help block out some food particles.
If you live in the Austin, Texas, area and you have lost multiple teeth, you should call 512.459.4347 to explore the dental restorations available at Anderson Lane Dental.
