Implant from Dr. BilskiMolar and Bicuspid Implants

If we have to extract a tooth, it is usually because of tooth decay, infection, fractures, or accidents. Sometimes we have to sacrifice the original tooth. The cost of risk vs. reward of trying to save natural teeth, in the long run, is sometimes not a good economic choice. 


Why Implants Might be a Better Choice

The alternative would be to take those teeth out and place implants. Usually, without disease, we can extract a tooth and put an implant in the bones. We place the implants and allow them to integrate or heal. During the healing period of about four months, you where temporary teeth until your implants have completely healed so we can place 

The most common teeth that we do dental implants for are the molars and bicuspids, the smaller teeth in front of your molar. This is because these teeth are used for chewing and will wear more, collect more bacterial, and are harder to brush. 

A Patient Example

X-ray of implants on molars | Independence, Ohio | Dr. BilskiThis patient came in knowing she had to have one of her teeth extracted. The tooth all the way to the left in the photo above is a terminal tooth. The two teeth to the right of them aren't as easy to see in the x-ray, but they were decaying as well. 

The solution was to extract these three teeth and replace them with dental implants. A root canal and post gum surgery would have cost her way more than implants.
