It’s not that you don’t love the fact that you have access to dental implants! It’s more about the fact that you wonder: What types of problems might lead you to actually lose a tooth, landing you at our Livonia, MI practice? We are happy to help you more clearly see that there are so many instances in which you could end up losing a tooth, that you really don’t have to feel bad about it (it can happen to anyone), and that on the other hand, it is also frequently avoidable. Long story short: No matter what, it’s going to be okay and we are here to help!
Your Tooth Has Been Treated Too Many Times
If your tooth was treated for decay and you received a filling but then you ended up with further decay and it was re-treated but then you ended up with a root canal down the line, one thing is for sure: That tooth received a lot of attention, it probably had a significant amount of tissue removed, and at some point … a tooth just needs to be removed. If you experience this, remember: It’s okay. You can replace it with a beautiful dental implant and restoration!
You Cracked Your Tooth
If you crack your tooth, things can go either way. If you are fortunate enough to be able to save the tooth, then you may end up receiving a root canal and a crown. Or, if the crack is quite severe or if the tooth becomes infected, the only course of action to protect your oral health is often to remove the tooth. Again, we remind you that you have the luxury of a complete tooth replacement in reach with a dental implant and restoration.
You Dislodged Your Tooth
Dislodging a tooth sounds like one of those things that’s nearly impossible but all it takes is a very strong impact. This can happen if you fall, if you run into something, if you’re playing a sport, etc.! While mouthguards can help much of the time during specific activities, accidents can still lead to a need for a dental implant. Rest assured: The results will be wonderful!
You Had A Seriously Diseased Tooth Or Gums
Of course, severe decay or even periodontal disease can claim the life of your tooth. Hooray for replacements, such as implants!
