Because the goal of general dental care is usually to help you preserve your healthy, natural teeth, learning that you need tooth extraction can sometimes seem like you’ve lost. However, there are many reasons for needing tooth extraction, and not all of them are easily preventable. Also, at our Ft. Worth, TX, dental implant office, we can help make tooth extraction much less worrisome, and make restoring your smile much more convenient. For example, after extracting your tooth, we can replace it with a lifelike, custom-designed dental implant and restoration.
It means replacing the tooth is better
The most important thing to remember about tooth extraction is that, once your dentist recommends it, it’s imperative that you undergo treatment as soon as possible. Today’s advanced dental restorations can help teeth bounce back from a wide range of concerns. However, there are incidences where a tooth becomes so compromised that no restoration can save it, and the longer it remains, the more of a threat it can become to the rest of your smile. Instead of trying and failing to repair it, extracting the tooth and replacing it could be the best way to save your smile.
It’s also a bad idea to wait
Accepting that you need to extract a tooth and actually going through with it are two different things. Many people recognize that they need to have a tooth extracted, yet hesitate to undergo the necessary treatment. This is a bad idea for several different reasons. The condition affecting your tooth will continue to grow worse, posing a greater threat to the healthy teeth and oral tissues surrounding it. Depending on the specific condition, this may also mean that your risks of losing or needing to extract more teeth will become higher.
You can leave with a new tooth the same day
The sooner you extract the compromised tooth, the faster we can replace it with a durable and highly lifelike replacement. At our office, we offer a New Teeth in One Day that helps ensure you can have your tooth removed and replaced with an implant-supported restoration, all in just one day. We’ll carefully plan your extraction and implant placement using highly precise digital imaging, and create a durable temporary restoration for your implant post that you can where as your jawbone heals.
