Extractions – Periodontal
For information about simple extractions, see our Simple Extractions page. This page pertains to tooth extractions related to dental implants and periodontal disease.
Teeth that have been deemed ‘non-restorable’ are often extracted and replaced with a dental implant. These teeth may be decayed, crowded or broken due to facial trauma. In cases involving future dental implants, the non-restorable tooth and/or tooth fragments are completely removed to make room for the placement of a dental implant. Some cases require bone or gum grafting in order to support a dental implant, but temporary replacement teeth can be placed during healing.
