Tooth Extractions Offer Relief—and an Opportunity
Benefits of Seeing an Oral Surgeon
Our Tooth Extraction Process
Make Way for an Upgrade
Your tooth extraction shouldn’t be the last stage of your treatment. With the exception of wisdom teeth, we frequently recommend replacing extracted teeth with dental implants. The only permanent tooth replacement, dental implants look and act just like natural teeth due to their similar structure—post (tooth root) and restoration (tooth crown). The dental implant post is surgically inserted into your jawbone to take the place of your extracted tooth root and includes the added benefit of stimulating healthy bone growth. Once this post has integrated fully with the bone, a custom dental crown is permanently attached using an abutment (connector piece). This tooth will look identical to your natural teeth and provide all the same functional benefits. Receiving this care from a surgical specialist with expert training in dental implants, you will likely be able to have a dental implant placed during the same visit as your tooth extraction. It’ll be as if you’d never had a tooth extracted in the first place!
