If you were recently told you needed to have a tooth removed, or are considering having teeth “pulled”, you may need to consider a few things before having the tooth extracted. When a tooth is removed it leaves a space behind. In turn, gum recession and bone loss can occur at that location. The surrounding teeth will also want to “drift” into that space if left alone for a long period of time. In order to avoid these situations, it would be best to discuss your options with us at Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists beforehand.
