Dental Extractions and Bone Grafting

Tooth Extraction and Bone Grafting in Pleasanton, CA.

Dental extraction, or tooth extraction, is a procedure in which the dentist removes an infected or broken tooth from the jawbone. While we strive to help our patients keep all their natural teeth, there often comes a time when a tooth needs to be removed. A dental extraction is often recommended when a broken tooth, a cracked tooth, or decay tooth when it is damaged beyond the ability to restore the tooth well properly or if the bone supporting the tooth is severely compromised, often due to advanced gum disease. Even with a dental extractions, our wonderful team at Lumi Dental Studio can also restore an artificial tooth back in its place with modern techniques such as dental implants, bridges or dentures.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is a technique that aids in bone regeneration and creating proper bone form and shape. It is commonly performed alongside a dental extraction. Bone grafting is a safe, biocompatible material that is placed inside the extracted tooth socket. The material stimulates our bodies’ own growth and healing factors and strengthens the natural bone regeneration process. This results in preserving facial structure and aesthetics and stronger, healthy bone recovery in the area of the extracted tooth. Furthermore, bone grafting ensures there is enough bone volume to support the dental implant, increasing the likelihood of a successful and long-lasting implant restoration. In addition, bone grafting can help prevent complications that may arise after tooth extraction, such as the formation of empty spaces or pockets in the jawbone. These spaces can accumulate food debris and bacteria, leading to infection or delayed healing.
