Multiple Teeth Lost to Tooth Decay Complications Might Be Replaced with a Removable Partial Denture

Posted .

When a cavity goes without professional treatment from a dentist like Dr. Milan Sata, the bacterial tooth decay will gradually worsen. In time it can spread to the pulp and root of the tooth leading to a toothache or a severe dental fracture.

Even if you can manage to live with the general discomfort and dysfunction of the affected tooth, the bacterial presence could continue to worsen. In time, it could spread to the underlying periodontal tissues, causing a large dental abscess infection to form. This could affect the roots of multiple teeth in the area.

In some of these cases the teeth might be too severely compromised for Dr. Milan Sata to treat them with a root canal. This will require total extraction, while he takes the infected tissues from your gums.

Once any infection concerns have passed and the periodontal tissues have healed, Dr. Milan Sata can help you understand your options for restoring your missing teeth or replacing their basic function and appearance.

If you’re uncomfortable with the oral surgeries required to replace the teeth with dental implants or an implant supported dental bridge, Dr. Milan Sata might recommend fitting you for a removable partial denture. This is an abbreviated form of a complete denture designed to replicate each of your missing teeth.

Dr. Milan Sata will create a detailed impression of the area including the corresponding teeth in your bite pattern. This will be sent to a professional dental lab where your partial denture will be created by specialist dental technicians.
