EXTRACTION AND BONE GRAFTING

Building a Solid Foundation

The Role of Bone Grafting in Successful Extractions

Extraction and bone grafting are essential dental procedures that address the removal of a tooth and the subsequent restoration of the extraction site with a bone graft. At Buxmont Periodontics, we specialize in extraction and bone grafting services, ensuring optimal oral health and preparing the foundation for future dental treatments.

Tooth extraction may be necessary due to various reasons, including severe decay, infection, advanced gum disease, or orthodontic considerations. After a tooth is extracted, bone grafting is often performed to preserve the socket’s integrity, prevent bone loss, and create a stable foundation for dental implants or other restorations.

Following extraction and bone grafting at Buxmont Periodontics, our team will provide you with post-operative instructions and any necessary medications to ensure a smooth healing process. We will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and determine the appropriate timing for any further dental treatments.

Why Choose Buxmont Periodontics for Extraction and bone grafting:

How Extraction and Bone Grafting are Done

We try to make the process of extracting your teeth and replacing them as smooth as possible. The following are a list of some of the bone grafting procedures that we offer at our office:

We aim to remove your teeth as atraumatically as possible in order to preserve the surrounding native soft and hard tissue as much as possible. Just like other parts of the body, when a tooth is removed and not replaced, the bone and supporting tissues tend to atrophy. In order to prevent dimensional changes in your bone and gingiva, we are able to offer bone grafting to preserve the site so that regardless if you decide to replace your teeth with an implant, bridge, or denture, you are set up for success.
If your teeth have been missing for a significant amount of time , it may not be advised to proceed with implants or a bridge right away. In this scenario we offer several options to try to regenerate your bone and gingiva to prepare for your future restoration.
The bone that supports our upper molars tends to be the softest and bite forces tend to be the highest in the mouth, which is why our upper molars have three roots to anchor them down. When we lose our upper back teeth, bone density still poses a challenge to replace these teeth with dental implants. In order to accommodate for this we like to place wider and longer implants to support our bites. When we do not have enough bone in these areas, our office can perform some procedures that all lift your sinus up and augment the area with bone to get a longer implant in.
