It is important to pay attention to the gap in your teeth that will appear after an impacted tooth has been extracted. In case of wisdom teeth, the gap will only be visible at the back of the mouth. But for teeth located in more prominent sites, the gap that can result in an unsightly appearance and also obstruct normal talking and eating.

This is why we recommend that you must talk to your dentist for a treatment plan to fill the gap. The options include either dental implants (that are more permanent) or a dental bridge. Both alternatives require planning; for implants, the dentist will take accurate measurements and for dental bridge, a mold is required for the dental lab to create a bridge for your unique dental measurements.

Leaving the gap unattended may result in a gradual degeneration of the jawbone. Ensure that you have a frank and friendly chat with your dentist about options to preserve the extraction site.
