Dentists often try their best to maintain your natural smile, but under certain circumstances, an extraction might be necessary.
Like most surgeries, tooth extraction leaves the body prone to infections, even though it’s the most common oral surgery performed. It’s better, to be honest with your dentist and provide them with your entire medical history and any medication and supplements. This will help the dentist in developing a pre and post dental plan to fit your needs.
Depending on your situation, the dentist may also recommend a tooth replacement using dentures, dental implants, or a bridge. Give PoCo Dental Group a call to learn more about tooth replacement after extraction.
