After hearing the bad news that your tooth needs to be extracted, your dentist says that not only does the tooth have to come out but a bone graft needs to go in! Although grafting is sometimes necessary, the large majority of back teeth that get extracted do not need to be grafted. It all starts with the proper extraction technique. Atraumatic tooth removal without the disruption of gum tissue and bone will lead to proper healing and many times eliminate the need for a costly and frequently painful bone graft. Call our office for a second opinion and find out how you can get that tooth replaced!
