Preserving Natural Tooth Root Stimulation

Tooth Root Rehab versus Implant Surgery

Tooth Root Preservation Southfield It is generally known that tooth extractions are a popular "treatment" for a problematic tooth.

Tooth extraction is sensible treatment however, in many cases. In other situations, however, tooth extraction can and should be avoided whenever possible.

For patients considering reconstructive dentistry, finding a way to use existing root structures is far superior to removing a seemingly "lost" tooth in preparation for an implant device.

Stop Unncessary Tooth Extractions Southfield As the first photo shows, a tooth structure above the gum line is gone. This condition may lead many consumers to conclude that a tooth extraction is in order.

Tooth extractions lead to rapid decline of jawbone integrity. Dental implants have become the gold standard of tooth replacement since they function as an artificial root form structure that provides important tissue stimulation properties that have long term beneficial effects for preserving overall jawbone structures.

A seemingly bad tooth can have a healthy tooth structure which can be treated and prepared as an anchoring device or for complete restoration.

As can be seen in the post operative photo, sufficient structure has been exposed which can be prepared for alternative tooth replacement treatments.
