Loss of one or more tooth, unfortunately, may affect other the whole mouth. Gaps resulted from extraction will eventually alter the alignment of teeth, thus degrading normal function of teeth, such as chewing and physical distortion of facial profile.
These are the 2 most common alternatives that replace missing tooth:
A: Tooth extraction is a last resort that dentists recommend if the tooth is impossible to keep or if it is necessary to carry out another dental procedure.
A: Patients who are at risk for severe infection may require antibiotics before and after tooth extraction. The dentist should be well informed of the patient’s history of treatment including drugs and supplements being used or any underlying medical conditions.
A: The recovery time after tooth extraction usually takes 1-2 days.
