You and Dr. Ciuci or Dr. Perrone may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food). Both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw. The difference is that the implant is made of titanium — the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints. When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown.
Dr. Paul M. Ciuci, DMD, MD, FACS, has been proud to serve the Milford community at Milford & Derby Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery for the past 12 years.
Dr. Perrone grew up in Southern New Jersey with three sisters and his parents. His mother was an engineer and his father was a general dentist.
