Dental extractions are a common procedure. Dr. Alexis may recommend an extraction for the following reasons:
A stubborn baby tooth that is adversely affecting the growth of a permanent tooth.
Impactd wisdom teeth, or wisdom teeth that do not have enough room to emerge.
A permanent tooth that is unrestorable or unsalvageable due to dental disease.
If an extraction is recommended, relax. Dr. Alexis Mierzwa offers medication and nitrous oxide that will reduce your anxiety. If you are concerned about replacing the lost tooth, there are options available to you to do so. Our main concern, aside from doing a phenomenal job, is your comfort, safety, and happiness. We want to make the experience as easy and pain-free as possible for you.
Dental implants are an “artificial root” upon which a single tooth replacement such a crown can be placed, or they may be used to stabilize larger prosthesis like dentures. The implant is fabricated out of titanium, a material well-tolerated by the body. Although in some cases the implant might be installed on the same day as a tooth extraction, there is typically a healing period before placement.
By having an implant placed, the surrounding bone will stabilize and not continue to resorb, which allows for greater support long term and greater function, as well as esthetics, regardless of replacement choice. They are a superior way to replace missing teeth, as they do not require the support of surrounding teeth which are not designed to assume additional stress, especially if they are compromised to begin with. Implants are also an excellent option for stabilizing loose, uncomfortable, dentures. In some cases, they may be loaded immediately so you have your new smile the same day they are placed.
