When is bone grafting required?
A bone graft may be required after a tooth extraction to help maintain the facial structure. When a tooth is extracted, this can cause the bone and gum to shrink, which puts the surrounding teeth at risk. A bone graft will help to maintain jawbone density. A bone graft may also be needed to prepare the site for dental implants. Bone grafting helps to ensure the implants have a secure foundation.
