Do you have a tooth that is beyond saving? Considering a a dental implant? At Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH, there are advantages to combining the extraction and implant placement in one procedure. Let’s talk about the benefits of same-day extraction and implant placement.
1. You save healthy bone
As soon as a tooth is extracted, the bone begins to recede. A dental implant is the only tooth replacement procedure that prevents (or greatly reduces) bone deterioration. A bridge won’t prevent it. Neither will dentures. The post that is placed into your jawbone makes all the difference, because it quickly fuses with your existing bone in a process called osseointegration.
2. You have the original tooth as a model for the crown
There is nothing like the real thing when taking an impression for a crown. If the tooth you are extracting is broken or misshapen, we will fix all those problems with your new crown. But we’ll start with an impression or 3-D model of the original. This helps the lab techs create a perfect restoration.
3. One surgery vs. two
One incision. One healing period. One dental appointment. Need we say more?
Not everyone is a candidate for immediate placement. But if you are planning to get an implant after you have a tooth extracted, it may make sense to do both procedures together.
