Extracts & Bone Grafting

In some cases, your tooth may need to be extracted to prepare for a bone graft. A tooth extraction involves removing a permanent tooth from its bone socket. After this quick procedure, we can begin the bone grafting process.

Extraction Treatment

Before extraction, we will take an x-ray to get a better idea of the inside of your mouth. You will be put under local anesthesia to alleviate the pain. There are two types of extractions that occur: simple and surgical extractions.

A simple extraction involves removing a visible tooth performed by your dentist. A forceps tool is used to properly extract the tooth. A surgical extraction removes a tooth that is below the surface of the gums. Our surgical specialist will make a small incision in the gums and remove bone around the tooth to extract accordingly.
Afterward, we recommend taking prescribed medication and antibiotics to prepare the healing process for bone grafting.

What is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is a procedure that repairs and rebuilds lost bone or stimulates the growth of bone in that area. Functionality and appearance are restored with this versatile procedure. Local anesthesia is applied to the treated area, so you won’t feel a thing during the process! We make sure that you are provided with the best comfort and care.
