A Missing Rear Molar Might Need to Be Restored with a Dental Implant

Posted .

The average adult has eight molars in the back of their mouth. These large teeth work together to grind and chew most of the foods you eat. When a molar is lost to a severely untreated cavity or dental trauma, it can significantly impede your ability to process food before swallowing.

In a situation like this, Dr. Norman B. Fine can restore the missing molar with a dental implant restoration. This is one of the most effective treatments for replicate the strength and full function of a missing tooth.

This calls for a minimally invasive oral surgery at Dr. Norman B. Fine’s clinic in Greenville, South Carolina. During the treatment, Dr. Norman B. Fine will insert a small titanium dental implant into the underlying bone tissues. The titanium has the ability to gradually bond with the surrounding bone tissues. This will replicate the strength of the molar’s original root.

Once this has occurred, Dr. Norman B. Fine can start the process of fitting the tooth for a standard dental implant. This will replicate the original tooth enamel layer of the molar with a dental material such as gold, base metals, or porcelain.

If you live in the Greenville, South Carolina, area and you are missing a molar, you should call 864-299-5900 to set up a consultation at Fine Periodontics.
