TEXARKANA, Texas, May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Esteemed periodontist in Texarkana, TX,
Losing a natural tooth is never ideal as permanent teeth do not grow back on their own. Dr. Kovacs will always do whatever he can to save damaged, flawed or failing teeth before resorting to extraction, but in cases where a tooth is beyond saving or is causing undo harm to the patient, tooth extraction is necessary. Traditional extraction involves detaching the gum and jaw bone tissue from the tooth and gently removing it in one solid piece. Wisdom tooth removal can be simple or complex, depending on if the tooth is impacted or not. If a wisdom tooth is impacted, it will need to be surgically removed through the gum and bone tissue. As a periodontist, Dr. Kovacs is experienced in all types of tooth extractions and offers supplemental services to protect the mouth after extraction.
After a tooth is extracted, Dr. Kovacs may offer bone grafting and plasma rich fibrin (PRF) to restore the jaw and inspire faster healing. When a tooth is removed or lost, the jaw bone can recede due to lack of stimulation by the natural tooth root. This can result in surrounding teeth shifting, an improper bite or an aged physical appearance as the bone degrades. Bone grafting is used to restore the bone to proper volume for more balanced and stable oral function. PRF is a biologic material composed of the patient's blood that improves outcomes and decreases the healing time, resulting in a better overall experience.
After a tooth has been extracted, Dr. Kovacs recommends patients replace it as soon as possible with a dental implant. Dental implants mimic the function of natural teeth, replacing both the root and crown portion with biocompatible and natural-looking materials. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime and give patients back a complete, aesthetic and functional smile. Dental implants utilize both of Dr. Kovacs certifications; his experience as a periodontist assists in placement of implants and his prosthodontics training ensures the end result of a natural-looking restoration is always in mind from the start. In many instances, Dr. Kovacs can also extract a problem tooth and replace it with a dental implant all during the same appointment.
