Dental Implants Can Save the Day
A broken tooth makes daily activities painful and awkward. Eating is uncomfortable. Speaking makes you self-conscious. You can smile, but you don’t want to. When not caused by trauma, a broken tooth is often the result of a weakening of its structure caused by ongoing internal decay. Left in your mouth, a tooth like this can spread infection to adjacent teeth and the underlying jawbone. While we always try to avoid tooth extractions and preserve your natural teeth, when decay reaches an advanced level, extraction is usually the best course for your dental and overall health. If this becomes necessary, count on the well-practiced skill and compassion of Dr. Germain Jean-Charles. They’ll ensure you are pain- and stress-free during extraction with IV sedation or other anesthetic options. Trained in a variety of preventive procedures, they can also recommend a course of treatment after your tooth has been removed. For many patients with an extraction tooth, a dental implant is often the best option.
