Tooth Extraction is Never Our First Choice:
Incredible restorative options exist that can allow you to keep your natural tooth for as long as possible. However, an extraction may be recommended if your tooth is:
- Severely decayed/infected
- Cracked or damaged
- Causing intense pain
- Crowding other teeth
We use high-tech digital imaging technology to get a clear look at the structure of your tooth. This will help us make an informed decision about whether or not tooth removal is the right choice for you.
What is Tooth Extraction Socket Preservation?
After having a tooth extracted, there will be an empty “socket” where the tooth used to be. If the socket is not kept stimulated, the bone that is used to support the tooth starts to resorb and becomes thin and shallow. This can cause a problem when we look at possible treatment options to replace the gap with a partial denture, bridge, or dental implant. Tooth extraction socket preservation is the act of minimizing bone shrinkage, and therefore preserving the bone’s depth and height to allow for a better outcome for a future denture, bridge, or implant.
Advantages of Tooth Extraction Socket Preservation
- Prevents the bone from shrinking therefore maintaining horizontal facial bone structure
- Less likely for a replacement denture or reline to be needed, as less bone and gum shrinkage
- Reduced gap formation under the pontic (part of bridge replacing a missing tooth) of a bridge
- Better bone depth and height and therefore a better prognosis when placing a dental implant and less need for future bone graft
- Saves 6 months of healing time to have immediate bone grafting compared to having a bone graft once the socket has healed and shrunk.
