Replacing Molar Tooth with Dental Implants

Unfortunately, not all teeth can be successfully restored and extraction is necessary.  The good news is that replacing molar teeth with a dental implant is successful 98% of the time.  Often times we are able to extract the tooth and place a dental implant at the same visit.  This technique takes advantage of the body’s natural bone healing that takes place following tooth removal and allows the patient to receive their tooth much sooner.  This treatment was completed by Dr. Michael Kirsch in 30 minutes under local anesthesia and the patient returned to work the following day.
