Tooth Extractions & Bone graft

Tooth Extractions & Bone graft

Tooth extraction is the complete removal of one or more teeth from your mouth. Depending on the conditions of your teeth, your dentist may suggest the pull-out method or dental surgery for the extraction. Dentists generally prefer to keep your natural teeth intact, but sometimes the damage rate is too high, or your teeth are so much decayed that extraction is the only way out. The whole process is carried out under the influence of local anesthetics, so you would not feel any pain. But you experienced some discomfort after the procedure.


A bone graft is a minor surgical procedure that helps to build up your jaws in case it is too thin or too soft. The procedure uses processed bone materials, and once it is done, your body will start depositing natural bone cells around it. As the natural deposits start growing gradually, the graft material will get completely replaced.

When do you need a bone graft?

A bone graft is generally suggested by an experienced dentist in Miami, FL, after the tooth extraction procedure, as the bone can start to erode quickly once your natural teeth are lost. This can sag your facial structure and also cause bite issues. Also, the jawbone starts to shrink and erode quickly, making you look older and opening the doors to several other health problems. Getting the bone graft treatment on time would reduce the need for more extensive treatment, and the procedure will reinforce the structural integrity of your smile. It also helps to prepare your mouth for future dental procedures like dental implants.

What is Lorem Ipsum?

A bone graft may or may not be required after every tooth extraction procedure. But there are some cases where you would need it. Your dentist is the best person to give suggestions on your exclusive treatment plans after examining your dental conditions. Generally, the bone grafting procedure is carried out to stabilize the jaws and prevent further bone loss.
Remember that recovering fully from both procedures will take time. It might take somewhere between two weeks to three months, and the bone graft needs more time to heal. You should follow all the instructions given by your dentist during this period for a quick and easy recovery.
