Dental Implants: The Permanent Tooth Replacement

Restorations after teeth extractions improve oral function and, in some cases, appear more attractive and healthier than the original tooth. Of all the replacement options, dental implants remain the most ideal long-term for both functional and aesthetic purposes. For many patients, the option to replace teeth with a permanent and healthy solution like dental implants makes it easier to undergo tooth extractions

At your appointment, we will apply topical anesthetic to numb the area. Next, using specialized dental tools, we carefully extract the tooth to minimize damage to the bone and soft tissue. If you choose to replace your tooth with a dental implant, we will refer you to our partnering oral surgeon or periodontist to have your implant expertly placed. Our own cosmetic dentists have decades of experience and are skilled in restoring smiles after tooth extractions with custom, life-like restorations. If you have concerns about tooth extractions in Aurora, CO, we do all we can to help make your appointment safe, comfortable, and pleasant.
