Why Save the Natural Tooth, Rather Than Using a Dental Implant?
Here at Tewantin Dental Centre, the health of your mouth is our number one priority. Your natural teeth are better for your mouth than dental implants, as they cannot be rejected by the mouth. They also ensure the most stable connection to the jaw bone which can be imitated by a dental implant, although still not as cohesively as your natural tooth.
The inside of the tooth consists of dental cells, blood vessels, tissue fibres and nerve fibres. These are located in the hollow space in the central part of your tooth, beneath the dentine and enamel. Treating infected tooth pulp can save the tooth before it is too late and extraction is required.
This can also save you discomfort and expense in the long run, as any required tooth extraction would most likely require a dental implant, crown or porcelain bridge.
