Tooth Extraction - Austin, TX
Tooth extraction is often used as a last resort when other procedures and treatments have not been successful. It is always recommended to keep as much as the natural tooth as possible.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
- As a way to prepare for orthodontics due to a crowded mouth.
- To prevent the spread of infection in a rotted infected tooth.
- As a result of severe periodontal disease.
Wisdom tooth removal is tooth extraction that only involves the wisdom teeth, which are not necessary for a fully functional mouth. Not everyone is a candidate for wisdom tooth removal.
Replacing the Extracted Tooth - What Are My Options?
After a tooth is extracted, the new question becomes what to replace it with. Our Austin dentists will present a couple of different options to consider for different needs and budgets.
Option 1 – Dental Implants
Dental implants are a highly advanced way of replacing a single missing tooth. They are the closest option to a real tooth that is currently offered because they replace the tooth’s roots. They can also be used to support a series of dentures for multiple missing teeth using a procedure known as “same day implants” dental implants. Dental crowns are a necessary component of dental implants.
Option 2 – Fixed Bridge
A permanent-fixed bridge is another, lower cost method of replacing single missing teeth. They do not provide the structural benefits of dental implants, but they bridge the gap well enough to keep a functioning smile intact.
