If you have lost the majority of your tooth structure, leaving only the roots, our dentists may provide dental posts. As the remaining toot structure cannot support a crown, we create custom-made posts from a strong, biocompatible material, and carefully attach the posts to your remaining tooth structure. To learn more about dental posts in Beverly Hills, California, and to set up your appointment at Joseph Goodman, DDS, DMD, please call our office at 310-734-4557.
Dental posts are used when your tooth structure has been lost, broken off, or when almost none of your remaining tooth structure is visible. This damage can be caused by decay, or by an accident. When the remaining tooth structure is not sufficient to support a dental crown or other restoration our dentists create special, custom-made posts. These posts are designed to be durable, and are made from a biocompatible material, such as gold, titanium, or a material similar to porcelain (a white post).
Following the creation of your dental post, our dentists enlarge the tooth canal of your remaining tooth structure, and cement your posts inside it. Single crowns are then created for each individual post, and your treatment is completed by fitting a natural-looking crown on top of the post.
We invite you to contact our office today for more information and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Goodman and Dr. Kim.
