One or more cavities that go untreated can spread deep into the tooth. In time, this can even severely compromise the pulp or root of the tooth, resulting in the total loss of the tooth. In a situation such as this, Dr. Nilesh Pema’s only viable treatment option might be to extract the remnants of the tooth.

When you’re ready, she can help you decide if you’d like to replace the lost tooth. One of the most effective methods of doing so is to have a dental bridge installed in its place.

First, your dentist will form two abutments out of the two closest teeth by removing all of the tooth enamel you can try here. Then, she will form an impression of the abutments and your personal bite pattern. This will be sent to an off-site dental lab where your new bridge will be created.

Dr. Nilesh Pema will then secure a hard, plastic temporary crown over each abutment to protect it while the lab technician is busy producing your new bridge.

Dr. Nilesh Pema will call you to schedule a brief second appointment when your bridge is ready. The temporary crowns will be removed and she will cement your new bridge in place during this appointment.

If you have lost a tooth to severe, untreated decay, you should call Toluca Dental Care at 818-760-9912 to have it treated and repaired with a dental bridge in Toluca Lake, California.
