Bone Grafting Using State-of-the-Art Technology

Tooth extraction is a procedure performed to remove a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. This is usually necessary for several reasons, including severe decay, which threatens the health of the tooth and gums surrounding it, irreparable damage to the tooth caused by trauma or injury, crowding of the teeth due to misalignment, and in preparation for restorative procedures like dental implants.

Dr. Nguyen is proud to offer extraction with bone grafting procedures.

When Is Extraction Necessary?

Tooth Decay

The number one reason for tooth extraction is tooth decay, which is also one of the most common and easiest diseases to prevent. Regular brushing and flossing are the two best habits you can develop for a healthy smile, along with regular dental cleanings and checkups at your dentist's office to help you get an early start to treatment on any problem areas. If you've developed cavities, you may eventually need to have teeth removed at some point to avoid the spread of infection, which can spread to the jaw and other surrounding structures.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

As our teeth develop, the wisdom teeth can become impacted or unable to fully erupt through the gums. Impaction can cause pain, swelling, and infection of the tissue surrounding the tooth. In many cases, an impacted wisdom tooth should be removed to prevent future problems and alleviate discomfort.

Orthodontic Treatment

Tooth extractions are sometimes necessary before orthodontic treatment can begin. This is because teeth are straightened using braces, which rely on teeth being moved to fit together properly. For a patient to get the ideal smile with straighter teeth, some teeth must be extracted to make room in the patient's mouth for the remaining teeth to move into their proper positions.

Dental Abscess

A dental abscess is a bacterial infection that occurs within the mouth. The infection usually starts from a cavity. As the bacteria grows, it can spread to the pulp and infect the root canals inside the root. Eventually, an abscess forms in the gums or jawbone.

Abscesses can be very painful, but they can also cause fever and other flu-like symptoms. This is why it is important to see a dentist if you suspect you have an abscess. The doctor is able to drain the abscess and remove the infected tooth if necessary. An abscess that does not go away with treatment or antibiotics may lead to extraction.

Bone Grafting Process

Extraction and/or Bone Sourcing

Once the tooth has been removed, a small piece of healthy bone tissue is obtained from the donor site.

Graft Insertion

The surgeon places this harvested material into the affected area to stimulate new growth and close gaps in damaged bones.

Stitching

This involves closing up any incisions made during surgery with sutures or staples to prevent infection and promote healing.

Recovery

Finally, recovery after bone grafting is essential to ensure optimal results whilst reducing pain levels following surgery.

Payment Options

At our dental office, we prioritize accessibility and affordability for all of our patients. That's why we are proud to announce that we have established partnerships with most major PPO dental insurance plans.
