Tooth Replacement With Advanced Dental Implants
Replacing teeth as soon as possible following extraction offers the best results for your smile. The longer teeth remain unreplaced, the greater the chance of further problems like tooth movement, change in bite and bone loss.
Dental implants are considered the preferred method of replacing missing or extracted teeth. Implants offer a wealth of benefits and are a permanent solution to tooth loss if they are properly taken care of. As a Fellow of the International Congress of Implantology, Dr. Price is highly experienced in implant dentistry, and may recommend socket preservation at the time of your extraction. Socket preservation is a bone grafting procedure that fills spaces in the bone left by tooth roots. It effectively prepares the site for future implant placement and success.
