Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction

Most people don’t realise that the method by which a tooth is extracted can greatly impact the future prospect of dental implant treatment.

After a tooth is removed, the bone supporting the lost tooth shrinks away, often to such an extent that future implant placement is impossible.

To prevent this, Dr Worthington performs bone grafting procedures after every extraction to facilitate future successful implant care.

We therefore recommend that patients who suspect that they may need teeth extracted visit our practice to have the teeth removed to ensure success of their implant care.
