Teeth Extractions and Bone Grafting
Whatever the reason you need a tooth extraction; it is a very routine procedure. And, a tooth extraction is nothing to be feared when done by an experienced hand. Dr. Viet Tran’s main goal is to try to save the tooth. When you come in for an exam, Dr. Viet Tran will let you know the best way to move forward with treatment.
What can I expect when I get a tooth extracted?
What is bone grafting? Bone grafting is a procedure that helps build up new bone in the area of your jaw that used to hold teeth. A small incision is made in your gum to expose the bone beneath it, and then grafting material is added. The grafting material will eventually be absorbed by your body and replaced by your own new bone.
When you lose a tooth or haven’t replaced a tooth that has been extracted, your jawbone can start to deteriorate. Before any other procedure (such as Dental Implants) can start, you have to have enough bone to hold the implant. Dr. Viet Tran and his team offer exceptional bone grafting procedures in Houston, Texas.
