Why do we need to bone graft after a tooth is extracted?

Team Uncategorized

When a tooth is extracted, the surrounding bone is lost making it tough to replace the tooth with a dental implant. This is a natural response called “bone resorption”.

This is where bone grafting comes in. We add bone grafting materials to the weakened area, creating a sturdy foundation for the dental implant. For the dental implant to be successful, it requires a stable and substantial base to anchor securely into the jaw.

Dental implants are a fantastic solution for replacing missing teeth, mimicking the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth.

There are alternatives to dental implants such as a bridge or flipper. We can explain each of these options during your consultation with us. Email us for more information at info@prestigeoralsurgery.com
