North Vancouver Dentist saves tooth. Blue Ridge Deep Cove Parkgate Plaza Emergency Dentist

Blog by Dr. Gilbert Lee | June 20th, 2017

Dr. Lee at Seymour Dental has many different ways of saving teeth that most dentist would have a treatment plan to extract. Dr. Lee has removed very deep decay left with a big portion of the tooth missing and built it up with fibre lux posts and pins. He has also done hemisections on teeth which means spliting  the tooth in half and saving the healthy root. Sometimes it is important to keep part of the tooth to later make it as part of a bridge later on. It is important to try to save as many teeth as possible expecially if the patient has had many removed or needs a tooth to hang on to a partial denture for support.
