Why We Recommend Tooth Extraction
With the right restorative dentistry treatment, your teeth can recover from nearly any condition. Even severe tooth fractures and breaks can often be restored so you can preserve the rest of your tooth. Sometimes, however, restoring a tooth isn’t possible, even with a custom-designed dental crown or other restorative measure. If the tooth is severely damaged, then it will continue to affect your bite’s function and potentially damage surrounding oral tissues. If it’s extremely infected, then the infection could pose a threat to the rest of your teeth and oral health, as well. In such cases, the best way to preserve your smile as a whole may be to extract the tooth so that we can replace with a lifelike, highly durable prosthesis.
Steps to Take Afterward
We recommend tooth extraction only when there is no other way to save the tooth. However, we can save your smile and bite function by extracting the tooth and replacing it as soon as possible, preferably with a dental implant and crown. Once we’ve removed the threat to your smile (the compromised tooth), replacing it will reestablish your bite function and your smile’s appearance.
