If you’re faced with loose teeth that need to be extracted, the ideal option on the dental market today is dental implants. This synthetic solution stimulates jawbone growth and maintains your facial structure – not to mention you’ll have complete oral function as well!

To learn more about why dental implants are so important after teeth extractions, keep reading.

When is it Necessary to Have Dental Implants Placed?

Kentucky patients who have had teeth extractions should have dental implants placed as soon as Dr. Clagett recommends. Dental implants play an important role in your overall oral function:

  • They maintain your healthy bite, which allows you to eat all of your favorite foods.
  • They keep your remaining teeth in place and prevent dental shift.
  • They maintain the health of your jawbone, keeping it strong and allowing it to retain its shape.

Not only do dental implants improve your oral health, but they also provide Kentucky residents with amazing aesthetic benefits. After receiving dental implants, many patients experience renewed self-confidence. And because dental implants are permanent and the strongest tooth replacement system on the market today, they allow Dr. Clagett’s patients to eat, drink and be merry in all sorts of social gatherings without discomfort or embarrassment. Truly, dental implants can give you your life back!

Other Tooth Replacement Options

Dr. Clagett believes that every patient has the right to know their full dental condition and that they deserve to have all available treatment options presented to them. Therefore, it’s important to note that dental implants are not the only option for tooth replacement. Other options include a dental bridge, which doctors can use to replace one or two extracted teeth. Or, if you have several teeth removed, you could choose dentures as your tooth replacement option. However, both of these options sit on top of the gum line and do not stimulate the jawbone.

Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that supports your overall oral health. By placing a metal rod into your jawbone, Dr. Clagett can use dental implants to stimulate your jawbone like your natural tooth roots used to. This means your jawbone will stay healthy, and strong, and that you will have new, permanent teeth that function, feel, and look like natural teeth!
