Having a tooth pulled may finally give you the relief that you’ve been hoping for. Whether you’ve been dealing with a loose tooth, an infected tooth, or a tooth that’s always giving you grief, as soon as you have it pulled you may think, “I can finally breathe (or chew).” But, before you settle into having a mouth without at least one tooth, it’s vital that you get it replaced. But why and how?
The biggest thing a lot of patients want to know is why they have to have their tooth replaced if they can get along just fine without it. Yes, it’s true that you may be able to function fine without your teeth, but you may not realize that it can cause a variety of other, more severe issues. For instance, when you don’t have anything on top of your jawbone, it can start to soften and disintegrate. Also, when you have a missing tooth, it can shift your other teeth around and leave you with a crooked smile.
After you have had your tooth pulled, we will go over all replacement options including dental bridges, dental crowns, and dental implants. Then, from there, we will color match you so that your prosthesis matches your surrounding teeth which will make it a whole lot less noticeable.
Giving you a mouth full of utterly perfect teeth is one of our goals here at Aradia Dental Arts. If you want to learn more about restorative dental options, contact us today and call our Phoenix office at 602.957.9643.
