Whether trauma, severe periodontal disease, abscess, or big cavity, some teeth may not be restorable. Whatever the reason may be, sometimes teeth have to come out. Our highly skilled dentist perform these extractions including wisdom teeth! We numb you up the same way you would get a filling. We gently remove the teeth and clean out the infection. To maximize healing, minimize discomfort or possible future implant, bone grafting is placed in the socket the SAME day. After a period of healing, an implant can then be placed. You go to work the same day! Our in office lab can construct a same day denture so you will never be without any teeth!
Bone grafting is the replacement or augmentation of the bone around the teeth. Bone grafting is performed to reverse the bone loss / destruction caused by periodontal disease, trauma, or ill fitting removable dentures. It is also used to augment bone to permit implant placement. Ask your dental implant dentist about the advantages of different bone grafting methods and materials so that, together, you can make an informed decision.
