Dental extractions are usually done when a tooth has become severely rotted and is in poor shape, or after a tooth has become damaged. At Capeheart Family Dentistry, we will do a tooth extraction in Bellevue NE for patients who have teeth that need removal. Afterwards, we can place an implant over the area to replace the missing tooth.
After an extraction we can place dental implants to replace the missing teeth. Dental implants are an ideal solution for those who are missing teeth and want a permanent and complete set. Dental crowns are used when a patient has a highly damaged or decayed tooth. The crown acts as a protective cover by making the tooth stronger and reinforcing the jaw area. Bridges are for those who are missing one or more teeth, bridging the spaces between the teeth and stabilizing the rest of the jaw. Dentures are a good option for patients who are missing more than two teeth and who don’t want to go through the costly procedure of having multiple implants put in. After a tooth extraction in Bellevue NE your implant can be done after the gum heals. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone, making them a permanent and secure anchor to place an artificial tooth over.
Implants are also stronger than a natural tooth root, making them durable and without the need for ever requiring a root canal or filling. The implant helps retain the shape of the bone and the jaw and to maintain the facial aesthetics. This is important because missing teeth can cause a sunken look to the facial structure and deform the jawbone. Also, the surrounding teeth do not need to be filed down as is the case with veneers. Our dentistry offices also provide complete dental exams, preventive, hygienic and periodontal therapy, teeth bleaching and whitening, root canal therapy, extractions and pediatric dental care.
