Through the appropriate dental work, it is often possible to take care of oral health problems while only making minimal changes to your tooth structure. Timing matters when it comes to restorative dentistry—simply put, the longer you wait to do something about a problem, the more likely you are to have complications. Advanced gum disease, physical injuries, and severe decay can cause enough problems to require a tooth extraction. Our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office is prepared to help in a situation where a tooth cannot be saved. In addition to providing your extraction, we can provide a custom prosthetic restoration to improve your smile and well-being.

Severe Dental Problems Can Call For Tooth Extraction

The unfortunate issue with poor oral health is that when a problem becomes too serious, there may be no way to save tooth. You can reduce your risk for this by consistently scheduling dental exams. However, if a severe physical injury occurs, or if you let a problem with advanced gum disease or tooth decay go unaddressed for too long, you can eventually find yourself in need of a tooth extraction. In addition to safely removing a tooth, we can make plans to restore your complete smile through plans to support a restoration with an implant.

Implant Dentistry And The Restoration Of Your Smile

Through implant dentistry, we can provide a means of permanently supporting a prosthetic tooth so that you can smile, bite, and chew with confidence. Implants offer more than just stability for prosthetic teeth. You can also count on it to support your jaw health by stimulating the bone, which helps encourage the movement of nutrients to the surrounding tissues. After you go through an appropriate healing period, you can receive your appliance, which can be carefully made to fit in with your smile and offer lasting oral health benefits.

What To Look Out For If You Want To Avoid Future Tooth Loss

Regular dental visits will be important for preventing future problems that require extractions of teeth. After all, you can receive timely warnings about dental decay, gum disease, and other problems that threaten your well-being. These visits also help you prevent future problems, which means you are less likely to require any kind of restorative dental work.
