Circumstances That Might Warrant Tooth Replacement

Young woman with healthy teeth on color background, closeupIn our previous blog, we discussed the structural, functional, and health reasons behind the need for a dental implant restoration, as well as how our team could assist through the process. To continue this discussion, your Fort Worth, TX oral surgeon would like to take a look at specific situations that may arise, causing the need for a tooth replacement and how our office is here to help make the process more streamlined for you.

Severe Decay or Infection

When it comes to your natural teeth, the last thing your dentist wants to do is have to remove one. Indeed, most individuals would prefer to keep their natural structures as well, but bear in mind that sometimes a tooth must come out when it comes to preserving your oral health. One of the common circumstances that warrant the need for a dental extraction is damage caused by harmful bacteria. You see, circumstances such as severe decay or oral infection can target one or even multiple structures, actively weakening them until they are no longer salvageable. What’s more, once an infection progresses past a certain extent, it begins to affect much more than just that initial tooth, but surrounding teeth and structures as well. This will ultimately put your oral health at risk. If you are experiencing an infection or serious decay, do not hesitate to reach out to our team to learn about your options.

Accident or Emergency

In addition to infection and decay, another major cause for tooth loss and replacement involves accidents and emergencies. Indeed, dental emergencies can range in severity, from a minorly cracked or chipped tooth to a completely dislodged structure and everything in-between. In cases of knocked-out teeth, you may experience significant trauma or damage depending on the severity of the accident itself. Fortunately, our team is here to help! With our all-in-one office and advanced dental equipment and techniques, we can provide a dental implant in as little as a single visit. What’s more, our advanced techniques allow us to place your biocompatible post and custom restoration utilizing a minimally invasive approach. For more information about this process or to schedule your consultation with our team, reach out to our office today.

You Have Already Lost Teeth

For some individuals, tooth loss has already occurred in the past. It could have been from one of the reasons above, or another miscellaneous situation, but some time may have passed since losing the structure. In cases like these, an implant restoration may be beneficial in restoring some of the functionality that was affected.
