Before you can replace your teeth with a dental implant or other restoration, it may be necessary to remove teeth from your mouth and provide you with a bone graft. Tooth extractions are typically recommended when a tooth is too badly damaged to be restored, such as when:
- Severe infection has destroyed much of the tooth and supporting bone structure
- Severe decay has damaged the tooth beyond repair
- The teeth are overcrowded and cannot fit properly in the mouth
If this is the case for you, our dentists will remove your tooth as gently as possible from your mouth and provide you with detailed post-extraction care instructions so that you can properly care for your mouth as it heals.
When a tooth is extracted or severely damaged, the supporting bone is also impacted and will begin to deteriorate. Bone grafting is an oral surgery procedure that helps prevent or correct this deterioration and ensure that you have sufficient supporting bone to support your teeth and dental implants. During this procedure, our dentists will transplant a piece of bone from another area of your jaw or body to the jawbone. This transplanted tissue then grows together with your natural bone tissue to create a strong and more stable foundation.
