Severely decayed or damaged teeth can cause further oral health issues if left in the mouth. We do everything possible to improve your oral health and avoid a tooth extraction including creating custom dental crowns. In some cases, however, we are left without another option and must extract a tooth in order to preserve your oral and overall health. A tooth extraction can prevent further damage to nearby teeth as well as systemic health issues and we offer dental implants to ensure your smile’s health, function and look is immediately restored. If you have a tooth that is infected, has chronic pain or if you notice swelling around the tooth, you may need a tooth extraction.

Rebuild Your Smile After Tooth Extractions with Dental Implants
If you do require a tooth extraction, we recommend receiving a dental implant shortly after treatment in order to restore complete oral function and prevent other oral health issues. If an implant is not placed after a tooth extraction, the bone will recede over time and lose healthy bone density. A dental implant takes the role of a natural tooth helping you avoid bone loss, difficulty eating and speaking and even helps prevent surrounding teeth from shifting out of place. Each implant requires a certain level of bone density in order to be successfully placed in your jaw bone so timing is important. For your convenience, consider receiving a dental implant from the same dentist you trust with your tooth extraction.
