Question:
Oral Surgery - Bone Graph or Not: My 12 year old son has a tooth below his permanent tooth on the bottom.

One oral surgeon wants to extract and stitch while another wants to extract and do a bone graph.

Will bone grow in and fill in space if we do not do bone graph? ...Visitor from GA

Answer:
For most or many patients, extraction sites will fill in with new bone, on it's own, to some extent.

Obtaining a socket graft is the "cadillac" treatment for a tooth extraction. Socket grafts fill the hole instantly with bone regeneration material that rapidly develops into solid bone and osseointegrates well with the surrounding bone.

The extra advantages are most likely no problems with dry socket, bleeding, pain and discomfort.
