In some cases a tooth may have significant decay or bone loss and cannot be saved. In these cases, the tooth will need to be removed to resolve the infection and pain. When considering tooth extraction, a bone graft for the area the tooth is being removed should be considered. A bone graft can help maintain the level of the bone that naturally resorbs away after an extraction. This can provide many benefits after healing for a better outcome when deciding to restore the area with an implant, bridge, or partial.
