FAQ:  Impacted Teeth



Question:
I am going to do some teeth extractions. One of them is an impacted tooth.

According to my dentist, she said that is possible that the impacted tooth can turn out to be a good tooth if an adjacent tooth, that is pushing the tooth, is extracted first.

Do you think it is possible to save the impacted tooth? I am also scared to not get used to the flipper that will be used until I get the implant I will need....Visitor from New Bedford

Answer:
It is smart to get whatever treatment can help preserve the health of adjacent teeth.

After extractions, it may be possible to have the implant placed immediately, along with grafting material. Ask your dentist if you are a candidate for this type of treatment.
