Replacing a tooth with an implant is a significant investment in your oral health.
Surgical implant treatment is typically performed under local anesthesia to ensure comfort and a pain-free experience. The procedure involves inserting a titanium implant into the alveolar bone, serving as a replacement root. Subsequently, a prosthetic tooth can be attached to the implant.
Replacing a missing tooth is important not only for maintaining the aesthetics of your smile but also for enabling proper chewing function. Choosing not to replace a tooth with an implant or another type of treatment, such as a denture, can have consequences on chewing, digestion, tooth alignment, and more.

Why is it important to replace an extracted tooth?
Replacing a tooth is important for your dental health as well as your overall health. Your teeth, being responsible for chewing among other functions, have a direct impact on your digestion. Therefore, a missing tooth can cause problems in other systems of your body. Additionally, the alignment of your teeth and your bite can be affected by the removal of a tooth. Over time, if the tooth is not replaced, orthodontic treatment may be necessary. Feel free to discuss with our team the different options available to you and their respective benefits.
