Extraction Is Not The End Game

Have you had a tooth extracted? You may be left with a gap in your smile. Unsightly as that may be, there is more than the issue of appearance. At Flax Dental in Atlanta we can address that with a state-of-the-art dental implant.

Problems With Extracted Teeth

After a tooth is extracted, the bone surrounding the extraction site shrinks and recedes. This happens because there is no longer a tooth root requiring a blood supply, and the bone reacts accordingly.

People who have had numerous teeth extracted from the upper palate eventually develop a sunken-in look because they lose a significant portion of their jawbone. Another issue is that the missing tooth may cause the surrounding teeth to shift.

The Best Solution

Fortunately, there is a procedure that will prevent these issues. A dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into the jaw bone where the tooth root used to be. An artificial tooth goes on top of the implant.

The result is a permanent, natural-looking restoration that gives you back your smile while retaining the healthy bone and gum tissue at the tooth site.

At Flax Dental in Atlanta, we provide dental implants to restore extracted teeth while preventing additional dental problems. Patients from Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, and Dunwoody also come to our practice for health and wellness dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment today!
