Patients in Houston ask if dental implant treatment is the only tooth replacement solution after extractions

Dr. Monti Harpalani - Dental Implant After Extractions Houston

At Vivid Dental, we do everything we can to save natural teeth. However, in some cases, we may recommend tooth extractions. Tooth extractions may be necessary for several reasons including removing teeth damaged by decay, removing wisdom teeth that have become impacted, or making room for orthodontic work. Regardless of the reason, we are committed to treatments that are as painless as possible at our Houston office and strive to provide restorations that blend beautifully with the smile after extractions. Many patients will ask if dental implant treatment is the only tooth replacement solution. We will reply, “No,” and explain our options.


Providing alternatives to dental implant treatment

It is important to replace missing teeth promptly to protect the health of the smile. When patients are missing teeth, their teeth may shift. This can make it difficult to keep the teeth clean with brushing and flossing. We understand the right tooth restorations can restore health, function, and beauty to the smile. Dental implants can involve a lengthy treatment. Therefore, we provide alternatives such as dental bridges and dentures.


Dental bridges contain artificial teeth to replace the missing teeth. The artificial teeth are between two dental crowns, which are placed on teeth adjacent of the gap. Dental bridges can be ideal for restoring one to a few missing teeth. However, if many teeth must be extracted, we may recommend dentures. We use dentures to replace one tooth or an arch of missing teeth. We can customize dentures to ensure precise fit and appearance before placement.


Maintaining the health of your smile

With excellent care, dental bridges and dentures can last a decade or more. Therefore, it is critical to brush daily, floss, and maintain dental check-ups. Patients with dental bridges can use dental floss threaders to clean under the restoration. We are happy to explain how to use floss threaders as well as answer any questions regarding post care instructions.
