One of the most dreaded dental procedures for patients is having a tooth pulled or extracted. You may avoid going to your dentist altogether because of this fear. However, at Darrow Dental, you will receive the best dental care using the most advanced techniques, equipment, and materials. Dr. Marino is a highly experienced Akron oral surgeon who specializes in tooth extractions as well as dental implants and will be sure to make your entire experience in tooth extraction and replacement is as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible.
There are several reasons why a tooth may have to be extracted. Of course, Dr. Marino will make every effort to repair and restore your tooth. However, sometimes an extraction is unavoidable. This may be due to sever tooth damage or trauma. For example, teeth affected by advanced gum (periodontal) disease may need to be pulled. Malpositioned or nonfunctioning teeth may need to be extracted by your dentist in order to avoid possible complications that may result in an eventual, negative impact on your oral teeth. For orthodontic treatment, such as braces, teeth may need to be extracted to make space for improved teeth alignment. Also, extra teeth, also referred to as supernumerary teeth, will be pulled so that they don’t block other teeth from erupting. Teeth are pulled either by simple extraction, which are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth, or by surgical extraction. Once the tooth is extracted, however, you may very well be interested in replacing it. An option for replacing missing teeth is dental implants. These are titanium cylinders that are surgically placed in your jaw to serve as an artificial tooth root. This method allows us to avoid placing a dental bridge, which can weaken the adjacent natural teeth. Since dental implants are practically indistinguishable from your natural teeth, and since they do not alter the structure and integrity of the adjacent teeth, an implant it the next best thing to your natural tooth.
If it is decided that your tooth is beyond repair and restoration, then a tooth extraction may be the best option to ensure your oral health. Regardless of the exact reason for you tooth extraction, Darrow Dental is highly experienced in both simple and surgical extractions as well as dental implants. This ensures the entire form, function, and beauty of your mouth is taken care of, from extraction to replacement. So whether you require Akron oral surgery to remove a tooth, to replace a tooth, (or both!) please call our office or consult our website for more information.
Are you looking for the very best treatment possible for the care of your missing teeth? Gaps in your smile are more than a cosmetic problem, these spaces in your smile from lost teeth actually present a serious health risk to the strength and longevity of your remaining teeth. While dentures can be one of the easiest methods to replace your missing teeth, they are not right for everyone. If you are looking to restore your smile to perfect beauty as well as working order, dental implants could hold the answer you are looking for. The only way to know if dental implants are the right choice for you, simply visit the experts at your local Akron implant dentist at the state of the art practice of Darrow Dental.
Dental implants are the most effective method of treating missing teeth today. While dental bridges can work to replace missing teeth permanently, this level of care actually causes permanent harm to the surrounding teeth in order to be properly fitted into your smile. Dental implants are the only permanent solution to smile restoration which causes no harm to your remaining teeth. This is accomplished through the use of a titanium post which is placed directly into the bone of your jaw at the site of the missing tooth. The post is allowed to heal after it has been placed for a period of four to six months in order to allow the bone of your jaw to grow naturally around the titanium post just as it would with roots of your natural teeth. This provides the strongest method of smile restoration for a procedure that, upon completion, can be treated and used just as you would your own teeth. Once the post has finished healing, your professional dentist in Akron will fit the post with a metal abutment, which is then topped with a porcelain crown. This crown is custom-made for your smile to perfectly match the exact missing tooth or teeth which you have lost to restore the natural beauty of your smile. However, the only way to know if your mouth is right for this procedure is through a test for bone density to insure your jaws are healthy enough to hold the post into place.
