Following A Tooth Extraction, What Should I Do?

While it is always the goal of a skilled dentist to save and restore a patient’s natural teeth, there are times when that may not be possible. When teeth are not restorable because they are fractured, have rampant decay or advanced periodontal disease, they often need to be extracted to eliminate infections and preserve a patient’s health and well-being. After patients have teeth extracted, one of the best ways to preserve the function, beauty and health of their smile is with dental implants. Dr, Breiterman in Wayne, NJ can help restore a smile to its original beauty with dental implants.

What Are The Benefits Of Getting Treated With Dental Implants In Wayne, NJ After A Tooth Extraction?

When people replace their extracted teeth with dental implants, they can resume a normal diet, speak with comfort, and smile in confidence with their stable and secure new smile.  Dental implants are able to benefit a patient’s smile comfortably. Dental implant restorations are made up of three main components:

Dental Implant:

The dental implant post is made to function like a natural tooth root. It is typically made from the biocompatible material, titanium. When the dental implant post is placed in the patient’s jawbone, it fuses with it to provide a base for the other components required to create the new smile.


The abutment attaches to the implant itself and simulates a prepared tooth. It is  used to connect the dental implant to the restoration on top of it.

Crown/ Prosthesis:

The crown or prosthesis, is the visible part of the dental implant in the patient’s mouth. The crown or prosthesis can be custom designed to look like the patient’s natural teeth.

Keeping teeth in poor condition make it difficult for patients to eat and smile properly, but  dental implants are a reliable solution that they can count on to restore the look, functionality, and health of their smile.
