If you’re considering getting dental implants to replace damaged or infected teeth, you’re probably aware of same day extractions and implants. Some dental implant dentists can give you a tooth extraction and implant in one day. The Dental Implant Place offers this treatment to all candidates with adequate oral health.
This post is here to answer your questions around this advanced dental implant procedure. Why don’t all implant dentists perform this treatment? Do you qualify for same day tooth extraction? Are there any downsides or additional costs? We will address these questions and provide helpful additional information.
In some cases, a tooth may be extremely compromised, impacted, damaged, or decayed, but not yet lost. If the tooth can’t be restored and interferes with your treatment, then we might suggest extracting it and replacing it as part of your dental implant restoration.
It’s not always obvious if a tooth needs to be extracted. Sometimes a decayed tooth can look relatively healthy and normal on the outside. The following are signs that you may need a tooth extraction and implant. Please keep in mind that these signs do not necessarily mean that tooth extractions are necessary. However, it would probably be wise to get a consultation with an implant dentist if you are experiencing any of the following:
#1 - Pain When Biting Down
If you’re consistently experiencing pain in a tooth while you are chewing, there is a good chance that the tooth is damaged or decayed.
#2 - Toothaches
If you experience lingering pain in a tooth, decay is a possibility. This is true for ongoing aches or sudden, sharp pains.
#3 - Stains
Tooth decay often causes stains. These can be black, brown, yellow, or even white.
#4 - Sensitivity to Heat and Cold
This can be a sign of damaged enamel, cavities, or tooth root decay.
#5 - Holes or Pits
Pits in your teeth are the most obvious and urgent sign that you need a tooth extracted. If you have teeth with these issues, we strongly encourage you to schedule a consultation.
Whether a tooth should be saved or extracted will vary depending on the situation. Bear in mind that infected teeth can significantly impact your health. Take, for example, a tooth that has been severely damaged. If it is infected, your chances of surrounding teeth becoming infected or diseased as well increases drastically. In other words, you won’t just be losing one structure, but multiple. For reasons such as these, it may be better to consider an extraction.
It's also worth noting that saving a tooth can be much more costly than simply extracting it. Root canals are generally much more expensive than a tooth extraction, and they have a higher rate of failure than dental implants.
Infected teeth are a serious hazard to your health. Not only does oral infection weaken your immune system, but it can cause a host of other issues as well. For instance, oral disease is linked to heart disease, liver damage, and several types of cancer.
Studies have also shown a link between tooth decay and dementia. If you think that you may have tooth decay, we strongly urge you to deal with the issue as soon as possible. A tooth extraction and implant can immediately change the overall state of your oral health, and your overall health could significantly shift as a result.
The Dental Implant Place offers tooth extraction and implant treatment to our patients as often as possible. However, some people don’t have adequate oral health for same day tooth extraction. Factors that must be considered include the density of the patient’s jaw bone, the state of their gum tissue, and the presence or absence of oral disease.
Thanks to our minimally invasive approach and our exceptional implant dentistry experience, our office commonly gives dental implants to patients who were told by other offices that they didn’t qualify.
So we encourage you to call us and get a second opinion if you’ve been told by a dental office that you don’t qualify for same day tooth extractions and implants. A consultation and CT scan in our Fort Worth TX office may tell a different story.
While some offices charge an additional fee to have both of these treatments done in one day rather than in separate appointments, many offices don’t.
Our office does not charge extra for accelerating your dental implant care with this procedure. If you need an extraction and an implant, we will charge you for each of those procedures, but we will not add additional costs based on how many visits you need.
One day tooth extractions may be unnecessary in some cases, but there are many reasons why you should go with this procedure if you can qualify for it. Going without even one tooth can have a negative impact even if there aren’t any immediate risks. A missing tooth can affect your bite’s balance. Moreover, missing teeth are embarrassing. If you can get same day extractions from an experienced implant dentist, why wouldn’t you?
This is why The Dental Implant Place offers tooth extraction and implant placement in one day as often as possible. Placing the implant post within the empty socket as soon as possible means that you don’t have to be toothless. In addition, same day implants promote more successful regeneration of the bone around the implants, which improves your chances of avoiding jawbone erosion and the need for jawbone grafting.
The Dental Implant Place accelerates your dental implant procedure in more ways than one. In addition to same day tooth extraction, our dental implants Fort Worth tx office handles every step of your treatment. We take care of you from your initial consultation and CT scan to the delivery of your final set of teeth. None of your treatment or design is outsourced. This not only saves you time and money from extra visits, but it also cuts down on your wait time between visits.
Moreover, our minimally invasive surgical approach means that we perform your same day extractions and implants with as little surgical trauma as possible. Rather than use traumatic (and very common) surgical practices like flaps, we place implants by inserting a tiny pinhole in the gums. Then, we gently rotate the implant into place. This method can significantly decrease the time you need to heal after your procedure. Our patients commonly report chewing the foods they want the day after their implants are placed!
Sometimes, getting a tooth extracted is necessary to fully rebuild your smile. If so, then we’ll replace your tooth in the same day for optimal results as long as you have the oral health to do so.
