The Problem With Extracting Teeth and Not Replacing with Implants

Many people delay having dental implants for two main reasons: expense and fear. People are worried about the price of the procedures, as they can be expensive, and others delay it because of fear of surgery and recovery time. Both are viable reasons and feelings, but it’s important to be aware of the possible complications

Waiting to get a procedure done puts you and your teeth at more risk. Our teeth are always moving to adjust to space it has and the longer you wait, the more teeth can shift, decay may create decay on other teeth and the bite may be become uneven over time.

The improvement in the techniques we have nowadays and the extensive training of our doctors at Aesthetic Dental in North Bergen make everything easier and more predictable for you. Attending to your dental health regularly not only saves you money long term, it allows for a predictable, better outcome.

Delaying Tooth Extraction Complications

Often, when people wait to get implants, what could have been a single extraction is now a multiple tooth extraction. This once again will be a more painful, lengthy, and expensive surgery than had you come in sooner. If a tooth is missing for as little as 3 months with no implant put in its place, bone loss is likely to occur and the need for other procedures like a sinus lift or the need for an additional bone graft wil arise.

Teeth that are surrounding the gap are also likely to shift if the gap is not dealt with. In the case that back molars are missing, teeth are likely to tilt. Additionally, the tooth opposing the space can slightly move into the space causing further problems with the bite. This shifting will once again cost more money as braces is the only way to fix this problem.

Maintaining an Even Bite

Neglecting your teeth over time causes issues where your teeth are not biting evenly. Some teeth receive more pressure than others possibly causing trauma to the nerve of some teeth or causing periodontal damage long term. By placing implants right away, the bite is more evenly distributed.
