Preserve Your Bone

Bone grafting is the replacement of missing bone. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Tyler suggests a bone graft be performed almost every time a tooth is extracted to preserve the existing bone and improve your ability to receive an implant later in life.

After three to six months of healing from a bone graft the placement of a dental implant is possible.

Did You Know?

In one year after a tooth extraction, 4mm of the height and 30 percent of the width of a socket is lost. Every year bone is not grafted into the socket you continue to lose more bone mass, making it difficult, and in some cases impossible, to place a dental implant.
