Extraction and bone grafting

The standard of care now following extraction of a tooth or of teeth is to graft bone material into the site so that the size and shape of the bony ridge will be maintained following healing. We recommend bone grafting of the extraction site so that following healing treatment options can include replacement of the lost tooth or teeth with many possibilities–a removable partial denture, a fixed bridge to replace the missing tooth, an implant to replace the root structure so a new crown can fill the space.
