Oral surgery may sound intense and expensive, but in today’s modern world, these procedures are common and affordable.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Some humans are born with a third set of molars! Anywhere from one to four extra molars are common, but in most cases, the mouth isn’t big enough to accommodate these teeth. They’re extracted so that they don’t accidentally cause jaw, bone, or disease damage.
Extraction Site Preservation
As you can imagine, once a tooth is pulled, the gaping hole can’t be left in your mouth. There are several options for filling an extraction site properly. It’s important to have that conversation with your dentist before moving forward with other dental plans.
Bone grafting is one of the numerous options for extracted site preservation. It allows the dentist to reshape the area around your teeth and maintain healthy bone in your jaw. It has a high success rate and saves you money and time in the long run by preventing further tooth damage.
