Dental professionals prioritize preserving natural teeth whenever possible. However, in cases where teeth have suffered extensive damage, decay, or other issues, extraction may be necessary. Nevertheless, tooth removal does not mark the end of the process. It is crucial to immediately place dental implants after extracting teeth.
WHY SCHEDULE A DENTAL IMPLANT SURGERY AFTER TOOTH EXTRACTION?
When a tooth is missing, the jawbone undergoes changes that can pose serious health risks. Teeth have functional and aesthetic value, as they enable proper biting, chewing, speaking, and smiling. Additionally, they play a critical role in maintaining jawbone health by stimulating it through tooth roots. Without this stimulation, the jawbone begins to deteriorate, leading to bone loss and shifting of adjacent teeth. Moreover, the exposed area becomes a breeding ground for bacteria that can cause systemic health conditions. Therefore, immediate treatment is essential to prevent such consequences.
Dental implants are an effective way to replace missing teeth and stimulate the jawbone, ensuring lasting teeth and jawbone health. A dental professional will schedule a comprehensive dental examination and place dental implants accurately using advanced technology. By doing so, they can help patients maintain a healthy jawbone and a functional, attractive smile for life.
