If you have a problem tooth that you’ve been considering getting rid of for a while, now might be the best time to remove it and replace it with a dental implant. Here’re some reasons why.
One of the most important benefits of removing a problem tooth is that it removes uncertainty. With a problem tooth that has had recurrent decay, multiple fillings, or a dental crown but still causes discomfort from time to time, you know what it’s like to have to make emergency dental appointments. It’s not just the trouble of dealing with the pain of the tooth when it flares up, you then have to make an appointment at a moment’s notice, disrupting your schedule and leading to unexpected expenses.
But with a dental implant, you can eliminate this type of uncertainty. With a dental implant, you will have a set sequence of appointments to get the procedure done. The dental implant has a set cost, and with the high level of implant success (98% according to many clinical studies), you know that problems are unlikely.
