Why You Would Need Dental Implants After Tooth Extraction


Posted on 2/20/2023 by Dr. Dani Stansell
Why You Would Need Dental Implants After Tooth Extraction Dental professionals always try their level best to preserve natural teeth before opting for tooth extraction and subsequent use of various tooth replacement options. However, in the case of extensive tooth decay or damage, extraction of a tooth may be inevitable. Fortunately, the availability of dental implants has helped in the replacement of extracted tooth or teeth.

Impact of Tooth Extraction on the Jawbone


Teeth play a crucial role. They aid in chewing, biting, and ripping foods. They also help in speaking, whistling, and ensuring a person has a beautiful smile. In the event that a tooth is lost, gums get exposed and food particles tend to get lodged in the socket creating a conducive environment for bacteria to grow.

If left untreated bacterial growth in the socket may translate to systemic health conditions once it gets into the bloodstream and spread to other body parts. It is, therefore, crucial to promptly treat the area a tooth is lost including the tooth roots. 

Importance of Tooth Root in Jawbone Health


The tooth root is an important part of a tooth just as is the top or crown. The tooth root is located deep in the jaw and aids in stimulating the jawbone. This helps the jawbone remain strong and stable and guarantees long-lasting teeth and a healthy jawbone.

Missing tooth root once a tooth falls out is extracted or gets knocked out means the jawbone is not getting stimulated. This subsequently leads to changes in the jawbone structure, which can further translate to the shifting of adjacent teeth and bone loss. It is, therefore, paramount to get dental implants after tooth loss to help in improving jawbone health.
