When Extracting a Tooth Is Necessary

With a focus on implant dentistry and the innovative technologies that make it so advanced, our main goal is to help you rebuild and preserve your smile. Extracting a tooth can sometimes seem contrary to that goal; however, 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.

How We Preserve Your Smile

Tooth extraction may be necessary in some cases, but the loss of your tooth can still have a negative impact. The missing crown can affect your bite’s balance. The missing root can negatively affect your jawbone’s health and integrity, making it weaker. To mitigate or avoid these impacts, we plan your tooth extraction and implant placement for the same day. Placing the implant post within the empty socket as soon as possible promotes more successful regeneration of the bone around the implant, which improves your chances of avoiding jawbone erosion and the need for jawbone grafting.
