Your dentist in Tampa, FL will always work hard to save your damaged tooth, but sometimes an extraction is your best option, followed by tooth replacement.
Fixing a Damaged Tooth in Tampa
In some cases, a tooth damaged by decay needs only a dental filling, but we typically recommend a dental crown for significant decay or fractures.
A dental crown is a customized, tooth-shaped cap that fits over a treated tooth. We always fabricate your crown to look like a natural tooth and blend easily with your smile. Once it is placed over your tooth, it restores bite function and aesthetics.
If a tooth cannot be fixed or saved because it is too severely damaged—meaning neither a root canal nor crown can fix it—an extraction becomes the only option to remove the infected tooth, and a dental implant is the treatment of choice to replace it.
A dental implant near Brentwood is a replacement root that integrates naturally to the bone, creating a solid foundation for a replacement tooth.
