Ananthan & Associates Dental Studio may determine that you need a tooth removed for any number of reasons. Some teeth are removed because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need to be extracted because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health. To avoid these complications, in most cases, the dentists at Miller Dental will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.
After a tooth is extracted, the resulting depression in your jawbone will slowly start to fill with new tissue. This process may take up to six months. However, after 2-4 weeks you should no longer notice any inconvenience.
