Question:
Extraction: Do I have to have bone graft right after removal of my tooth for an extraction? ...Visitor from Tucson

Answer:
Bone grafts for a tooth extraction (socket graft) slmost guarantee perfection in healing with the added benefit of immediate bone tissue regeneration which would accelerate a dental implant treatment for the extracted tooth.

Many patients elect to have the extraction socket to heal and regenerate bone tissue without additional graft surgeries which, for dental implant purposes, will delay final treatment.

Socket grafts are sometimes recommended for patients who are at risk for socket healing failure or dry socket.
