Extractions and Extractions with Bone Preservation
 

 

EXTRACTIONS AND EXTRACTIONS WITH BONE PRESERVATION GRAFTING 
Our primary goal is to retain and maintain teeth.  However, sometimes teeth must be removed.   When teeth must be removed, we will do our utmost to remove the tooth/teeth in a very conservative method to preserve as much bone as possible.   Teeth which are difficult to remove may require bone removal in order to release the root from the bone.  In the past, in the interest of efficiency, most techniques involved extensive bone removal with less regard to the effect of that bone removal on future treatment.  More bone removal made the task much easier but the result could be a very diminished bone support afterwards.  Unfortunately, that could often leave inadequate bone to retain a dental implant or even to support a denture if either is desired by the patient.  We do our utmost to remove teeth with minimal bone removal using much finer instrumentation.   And, in the case of a prospective dental implant site, we will also graft the tooth socket to help prevent further loss of bone during healing.  This grafting often makes the difference between placing a larger, more substantial implant and a smaller one,  and in the case of back teeth, may make the difference between having to place one implant or two (at twice the cost).
