Extractions And Dental Implants Are The Perfect Combination

At OnCall Dental in Fresno CA, we know that a tooth extraction can leave you feeling somewhat spent. After all, most dental visits end with the happiness of a restored tooth or reduced pain. But dental emergencies like a required tooth extraction, while definitely beneficial to an ailing smile, also leave us with a sense of loss.

Nobody wants to see a tooth go. This is why we offer a follow-up solution to this emergency dentistry option: dental implants.

The Extraction-Implant Timeline

  • Firstly, your dentist will discuss and apply any sedation options you are comfortable with.
  • Then, the dental team will go to work on extracting your tooth.
  • After a thorough dental cleaning, the team will seal up the area and let it heal.
  • Once the extraction trauma has healed, you can return to the office for a dental implant procedure.
  • The dentist will surgically insert a titanium post – again, under sedation – into your gum line, where it can fuse to your jawline and become a permanent fixture of your new smile.
  • After the osseointegration process – a fancy word for the rate at which the bone fuses with the titanium – you return for one final step: your dental restoration. Many are compatible with dental implants, including high-end dentures and bridges.
  • In the end, you will have a radiant new smile with perfect replacement teeth that are indistinguishable from your real ones.

If you suffer from a dental emergency that requires a tooth extraction, you don’t need to bid goodbye to your teeth. You can say hello to a brand-new smile instead! The team at OnCall Dental in Fresno CA is ready to make the process smooth and the results will amaze you. Contact us today!

Have you ever tried to find an emergency dentist on short notice? It seems all but impossible. If you’ve got a dental emergency, what might have been an inconvenience can escalate into something much worse.

Most dentists are the owners and operators of their practices, so they run them like most other businesses – that is, Monday through Friday, nine to five. It’s a different story with doctors. Medical emergency? Hospitals never close. You can always find an urgent care center or the ER, when there’s a crisis in the middle of the night.

And that is what makes OnCall Dental in Fresno such a valuable resource. We can provide everything from toothache relief to teeth cleaning. And if you’re one of the millions of Americans coping with dental anxiety, we provide sedation dentistry to get you through your procedure.

From Dentures to Dental Implants

The condition of your teeth significantly impacts your quality of life.  Fillings and root canals are costly and inconvenient. If the teeth can’t be saved, tooth extraction causes more physical and psychological pain. Extraction is usually followed by bone recession.

 

While dentures are preferable to having no teeth at all, they come with a host of troubles. They irritate gums and make breathing, eating, and talking difficult. Dentures are not a one-and-done solution for missing teeth, requiring relines as the jaw shrinks.

There is hope! Dental implant technology improves the quality of life for patients with traditional dentures. Implants help slow down declining oral health caused by tooth loss. OnCall Dental-Fresno can help. In addition to providing emergency dentistry services, we also offer restorative procedures and general treatment.

Dental implants are used to replace several teeth and/or  anchor over-dentures. Mini dental implants (also called denture-stabilization implants) allow your dentist to securely attach an appliance so that it won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts planted into the jawbone fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a stable base for an over-denture.

Some denture-wearing patients retain only ten percent of their chewing ability.  Implant-supported dentures stops bone recession and restore near-normal chewing ability. This results in better nutrition and overall physical health. The psychological benefits are equally valuable. Free of embarrassing denture-slipping, our patients are happier and more confident about their smile.
