Do I Have to Replace My Extracted Tooth?

Posted on 11/21/2022 by Summit Dental Group
Do I Have to Replace My Extracted Tooth?Tooth extraction is a necessary procedure when it becomes clear that other treatments cannot save one or two teeth. For instance, if you have a decayed tooth, the dentist can determine that a filling will not do much to save the tooth, and therefore to stop the infection to the nerves and gums from spreading, extraction will be necessary. If you are going to have a tooth removal soon, you might be wondering if it is necessary to have it replaced, or you can live with a gap. At our clinic, you will always receive the best advice from our dental experts to assist you in making an informed decision.

Is a tooth replacement necessary

Replacing your tooth after an extraction is vital and recommended by every dentist. This is because the space left by an extracted tooth can cause future complications which might require complex and costly dental procedures.

When you fail to replace your tooth, the surrounding teeth might shift, and they become weak and crooked. This will therefore impact your overall dental health. When the surrounding teeth shift, gaps might also appear in other areas of your dental structure.

Also, when you fail to replace your tooth, your bone structure might weaken which might lead to losing your bone tissue. Losing your jawbone tissue will impact your smile and general appearance.

What are options are available?

When you want to replace an extracted tooth, you will have a consultation with our dentist to determine the best treatment for you. Some of the best options include dental implants and dentures. Dental implants are a permanent solution, while dentures are temporary and you remove them when going to sleep.

When you come to our clinic, you will find a team of dentists ready to offer top-quality dental care. You can also call us, to get further clarification regarding tooth extractions and book an appointment.
