At Cassell Dentistry, we’ll do everything we can to save a damaged tooth. But in some cases, extraction is the best option to preserve the patient’s oral health.
There are a number of reasons why Dr. Cassell might recommend removal: for example, a tooth may be severely damaged by trauma or infection, the patient’s smile could be overcrowded, or the patient could be suffering from additional medical issues that make extraction the safest option.
Dr. Cassell will only remove a tooth if doing so is the best way to preserve your oral health.
Replacing Extracted Teeth
In a healthy smile with no missing teeth, the teeth support one another by holding each other in place. When one or more teeth are missing, your remaining teeth will begin to shift position — this can lead to irritation and gum disease that could eventually result in the loss of additional teeth.
At Cassell Dentistry, we recommend replacing missing teeth as soon as possible. Whether the tooth was lost due to damage, decay, or extraction, dental implants are the ideal tooth replacement option.
Natural-looking dental implants protect your smile by holding your remaining teeth in place and also by stimulating healthy jawbone growth. No other restoration can do this.
