Socket Preservation with Bone Grafts

When a tooth gets broken or decay damages it, the dentists try to fill it using a crown or the fillings that suit the best, as per the condition. But, there are situations wherein the tooth is so damaged that it cannot be repaired and has to be removed or extracted from its place. Sockets are the places occupied by the tooth, as they are attached to the bone.

While our dentist, Dr. Cutino will perform the procedure of extracting the decayed tooth or a wisdom tooth extraction, there’s likely a possibility of the socket hole. It can be very sensitive at times, as it exposes the nerves of the tooth that may call for other harmful oral diseases. Hence, at Vida Dental, Coral Gables in Florida, you will get a complete treatment and the space made by tooth removal is mended by bone grafting.

Why Consider Bone Grafting For Socket Preservation

There’s a remarkable technology of dental implants which is able to give people a bright smile and dental security. They act as natural teeth and are firmly attached to the jawbone. But, if the jawbone does not have the proper area to support the implant, the dentists have to follow the Bone Grafting Treatment.

When a person has to face a tooth loss, the attached bones also deteriorate having a lesser width, height, and the covering area. If there’s a longer amount of time that the tooth has been missing, the bone starts melting and takes away the scope of adding the new tooth. Hence, you will get a proper Socket Preservation with Bone Grafting at our place, i.e. Vida Dental, Coral Gables, in Florida from our dentist, Dr. Cutino.
