Bone Preservation

Pinehurst NC Bone PreservationWhen a tooth is removed, the jaw bone will dissolve irreversibly over time.  The best way to preserve the jaw bone is by placing bone grafting material at the time of extraction.  The bone graft will help support the ridge of the jaw bone and a dental implant may be placed in the near future.  The bone graft material is usually made up of specially treated cow or human bone.  The bone graft material is simply placed into the socket left by the extracted tooth.
