Whenever possible, periodontists like patients to keep their natural teeth. However, there are some circumstances that make tooth extraction a necessary option:Find out more by calling us at 702-984-2577 to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Curry Leavitt.
One of the most frequently discussed types of tooth extraction is wisdom tooth removal. Wisdom teeth can become impacted (never erupting, or only partially erupting, above the gum line.) This can be uncomfortable and cause other dental issues. By removing the wisdom teeth, the remaining teeth experience less overcrowding stress.
After having a tooth extraction, you should consider your options for replacing your missing tooth. While temporary prostheses or bridges can be created, there is a permanent solution: dental implants. Dental implants function like regular teeth. They are surgically embedded via a titanium-based post into the jawbone and look just like the rest of the teeth in your mouth.
To find out if dental implants are the right solution after your tooth extraction, please talk to Dr. Leavitt during your evaluation appointment.
