MOORESTOWN, N.J., September 24, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Drs. Mario J. Canal and
As the American College of Prosthodontics has noted, 120 million people in America are without at least one natural tooth. In many cases, those individuals had a tooth surgically removed by a capable specialist, such as a periodontist. Although Drs. Canal and Calem first try to save patients' teeth in lieu of extracting them, this may not be practical in all cases. If a tooth is impacted, has severe decay, or has been damaged beyond repair, it may be best to have it removed. However, missing teeth can also become a health issue if they are not replaced.
When a tooth is extracted or lost, the space it once occupied will start to change shape. Other teeth may shift as bone degrades and the gumline becomes "sunken in." Additionally, bone reabsorption can lead to progressive bone loss and even set the stage for periodontal disease. For this reason, Drs. Canal and Calem carefully evaluate each patient to see if dental implants after a tooth extraction is their best option. If this treatment is an ideal course of action, the periodontal team can perform dental implant placement in-house. In some cases, this team will also advise ridge augmentation immediately following a tooth extraction. This ensures the socket preserves proper shape and a dental implant is placed in a healthy foundation with lasting results.
Drs. Canal and Calem understand that having a tooth extracted can make many patients uneasy and that more than 15 percent of Americans avoid receiving the dental care they need as a result of dental fear. As a result, Canal Calem Periodontics offers minimally invasive care using the latest dental technology and pair each treatment with custom sedation dentistry whenever necessary.
