A tooth extraction is a relatively standard and straightforward procedure that removes a tooth from your mouth. Your dentist may recommend that you have a tooth extracted for one of several reasons.
In most cases, tooth extractions are used as a last resort when a damaged tooth cannot be saved through other measures. These situations might include:
- Advanced decay of the tooth structure
- Severe periodontal disease
- Deteriorated bone that is not able to hold the tooth in place
- Deep tooth fracture
Whether you need a simple extraction or require surgery to remove a tooth, the team at Harmony Dental Group is here to guide you through a successful tooth extraction experience.
Bone grafting is sometimes needed to complete restorative dental procedures, such as the placement of dental implants or bridges. Without a strong jawbone of sufficient height, depth, and width, dental implants can’t be successfully placed.
The team at Harmony Dental Group may use bone grafting to rejuvenate and strengthen your underlying bone in cases where the jaw has been affected by gum disease, tooth extraction, infection, or injury. Over time, t more substantial bone mass is formed, helping to support and anchor dental implants.
As long as you’re healthy enough to undergo bone grafting, this is a much better alternative to missing teeth and tooth deformities. Call Harmony Dental Group to request an oral examination and begin your journey to a healthier smile.
Sometimes, patients who have lost teeth in the upper jaw require a sinus lift in order to have dental implants placed. Where there are missing teeth, bone naturally beings to shrink over time. As a result, the sinuses expand to occupy the space where the bone used to be. Without enough bone to securely place the dental implant, a sinus lift is necessary to move the sinus and to place additional bone in the area.
After a few months of healing, the dental implant can be placed.
Whether you are missing just one or many teeth, dental implants may be the perfect solution to restore your full, attractive smile. At Harmony Dental Group, we use dental implants to recreate the natural appearance and function of real teeth.
