Trust Bone Grafts To Restore What’s Been Lost
If you’ve lost teeth in the past and have become a victim of bone loss, you may be a prime candidate for a bone graft procedure! If a lost tooth goes unreplaced for too long, the bone that once surrounded that tooth is in danger of deterioration. The reason that you are in danger of losing this bone is because there is no longer a root attached to a tooth to keep the bone healthy and intact. The bone no longer has a purpose, so it begins to go away.
Having dental implants placed can save you from bone deterioration, but if it is too late, a bone graft can bring back the bone that was lost. Besides improving your appearance and oral health, you may need to have a bone graft to restore the lost bone so that it can support a dental implant. After having your implant placed, you will no longer have to worry about bone deterioration in that area again because the implant will effectively replace the roots of the teeth and keep the bone stimulated and healthy.
Trust Tooth Extractions At Hubbard & Leath Dental
If anyone in your family needs to have a tooth extracted, you can always trust us to carry out the procedure with confidence and care. Your tooth extraction will be taken care of in one visit to our beautiful Rochester Hills, MI dentists office. The reasons for needing to have teeth extracted include:
- Infection. If teeth are infected to the point that they cannot be saved, they must be removed to maintain proper oral health. If they are not removed, you put yourself in danger of the infection spreading.
- The risk of infection. In many cases, your dentist will be able to catch an infection before it fully takes over a tooth. If there is nothing that can be done to reverse the infection, the tooth will need to be extracted.
- A crowded mouth. If you are in line for braces, sometimes you may need to have some teeth removed to prepare your mouth. Also, if a tooth can’t break through the gums because there is not room in the mouth for it, it may need to be extracted.
