We want our Ottawa tooth extraction patients to be well informed concerning all of the options available for treatment. Prior to proceeding with the removal of your tooth, we will discuss all the possible alternatives. During the procedure, we will take necessary steps to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible.
You rely on your teeth to speak clearly, eat comfortably, and maintain an optimal facial profile that reflects both health and youth. Losing teeth can cause oral functions to be impaired, and the bone in the jaws to be reduced. This can alter your face shape and make it challenging to replace missing teeth in the future.
When a tooth goes missing for too long, other teeth can start to shift into its position and the bite can begin to collapse. This can affect the overall alignment of your upper and lower arches. It can pose a problem if you choose to replace the tooth at a later time, and it can contribute to jaw pain, worn teeth and broken dental work.
The sooner you replace your missing or extracted tooth, the better our Ottawa dentist can help you to prevent any of these side-effects from occurring.
Options we offer include:
- Dental implants restorations
- Dentures (full, partial, and implant supported)
- Fixed bridges
