If you’re missing teeth due to tooth extraction, periodontitis, or facial trauma, it’s important to fill the empty space where your natural tooth once lived. Since wisdom teeth are located in the back of the mouth, the site from extraction will heal on its own with no complications. However, if it’s necessary for other teeth to be removed, plans must be made. Fortunately at the practice of Dr. Suzanne Haeri, DDS, we have plenty of options for you.
If a tooth is removed and nothing is done with the extraction site, the jaw bone will degenerate and change shape during healing and can cause your teeth to shift. This can create problems in your bite and affect your ability to speak and chew. At the practice of Dr. Suzanne Haeri, DDS, depending on your personal needs, she can determine if you would benefit from dental implants or a dental bridge to restore your smile. Once a recommendation is made, a treatment plan will follow.
