Sometimes you may not have an alternative, and your tooth may have to be removed. It’s important to replace a tooth after it’s been extracted.
A missing tooth can set off a chain reaction resulting in new problems.
When a tooth is lost, the biting force changes on the teeth next to the space and they begin to shift.
When a tooth no longer has anything to bite against, it can begin to extrude out of it’s socket.
As your bite changes, your jaw joint may be damaged.
It is much harder to clean teeth that have shifted. Harmful plaque and tarter can accumulate, causing cavities and periodontal disease.
If you need to remove a tooth, replacing the tooth with a dental implant my be a good solution to avoid these problems.
