Dental Implants: The Natural Tooth Replacement
To ensure optimal health after tooth extractions, we often recommend dental implants. The only natural tooth replacement, dental implants replace just your extracted tooth with a post that acts like a tooth root and a dental crown that restores esthetics and function. Dental implants are the ideal long-term solution, unlike a dental bridge, which harms healthy adjacent teeth or a partial denture, which is uncomfortable and unstable. Dental implants will need very little (or no) maintenance outside of normal dental hygiene to remain stable and strong in your jaw. They’ll also never become decayed or stained and if you take good care of them, like the rest of your teeth, they’ll last for many years! Replacing your extracted tooth with a dental implant means you’ll retain a healthy smile, dental function, and natural esthetics, while preserving your jawbone and keeping your existing teeth from shifting out of place. If you need a tooth extracted, ask us about dental implants to replace your tooth!
