Tooth Extractions An Overview
Dr. Dall’Olmo believes that dental care should promote long term stability of the natural function of the bite and smile. For many patients, extracting a tooth and replacing it with a dental implant is a more productive alternative to a root canal or dental crown. These “quick fixes” leave the damaged tooth susceptible to further deterioration and jeopardizes the patient’s overall bite function and health.
Extracting a damaged tooth or a tooth affected by decay and replacing it with implants not only offers long term stability, it also reduces the chances of needing future dental treatment to repair that tooth.
For some patients, dental implants can be implanted on the same day as the extraction. For other patients, a subsequent appointment may need to be made for the implant procedure. A dental implant requires healthy bone and gum tissue to be successful. If a root canal is infected, or the bone is compromised the patient may require additional treatment before receiving the dental implant.
