When a tooth is removed, the jawbone may begin to deteriorate, which can cause the surrounding teeth to shift if the extraction site is not preserved. To prevent complications following a tooth extraction, Dr. Daniel Merrill and Dr. Stephanie Merrill may recommend preserving the extraction site with a dental restoration. Our dentists will discuss your treatment options with you and help you create a personalized treatment plan prior to removing your tooth. We encourage you to contact Merrill Dental at 513-779-7711 if you have any questions about extraction site preservation in West Chester, Ohio.
