Tooth extraction with bone graft

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth extraction with bone graft


Avatar m tn Bone graft after tooth extraction helps preserve alveolar bone, which facilitates implant placement. It's a cost- effective investment.
Avatar f tn Will the bone graft also keep my teeth from shifting with the extra space filled in in the back? Otherwise I dont feel the grafts are necessary.
Avatar n tn About two weeks ago I was referred to an oral surgeon for wisdom teeth extraction. All four teeth are impacted and need to be extracted, and it is quite painful. After they took the X-Rays, they told me what procedures I needed to have done. They told me I'd need to have the teeth extracted, and that I'd need a bone graft for each tooth that was removed, and that the bone graft was $350 a tooth.
Avatar f tn Extraction of teeth and bone graft are simple procedure . There is no need to worry. It appears that you are going to have immediate denture after tooth extraction. Immediate generally requires soft liner, and may need periodic reling , depending on the material . I personally would place implant 3-6 months after bone graft, depending on the healing process. If you have question, you should discuss with your dentist thoroughly.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, #6 needs to be extracted. My dentist proposes to extract the tooth and when the site heals perform a block bone graft (there isn't enough bone for a socket perservation). Originally ridge augmentation, GTR, and block bone graft were going to be perfomed at time of the extraction. After studyng my X-rays my dentist changed his mind. I'm disappointed and concerned; I believe that the bone in that area will recede even more.
Avatar m tn A week later I was due to have the extraction with my perio. He insisted on doing a bone graft - he harvested tissue from my palate) after the extraction). I had the sutures removed after two weeks. Now my prosthodontist is saying that I have to wait for the grafted area to heal before I can have the porcelain crown. I'm not sure whether he's talking about months, as he's booked me in four weeks time to have the temporary crown re-cemented.
Avatar n tn well what is bone greft in general....and is there any other alternative JUST as good?
Avatar m tn I had a fractured anterior tooth #6 extracted and a bone graft of bovine and cadaver bone installed 2 ½ weeks ago, and I took a regime of antibiotics prior to extraction, and for one week thereafter. I am experiencing a mild sensitivity. How long before the extraction site calms down?
Avatar f tn A related discussion, <a href="/posts/Dental-Health/Is-bone-graft-necessary-for-partial-dentures/show/2193402">Is bone graft necessary for partial dentures</a> was started.
Avatar m tn Optimal management is placemant of collagen plug(colla plug), or bone graft material into extraction socket, and suture of the surgical site. Post-op instructions include avoidance of straw and sneezing, if managed properly, most oroantral communications heal up uneventfully. If the condition persists after 6 weeks, you may need to see an oral surgeon to surgically repair the defect.
Avatar f tn What is the long term treatment for that area? If you plan to do an implant, a sinus lift or bone graft may be needed to place the implant as it needs bone to be stable and usable in the mouth. If there's sufficient tooth structure adjacent to the missing tooth, a bridge may be done as well which wouldn't require a bone graft as there's no implant to place. I would recommend discussing with your dentist for your best option.
Avatar f tn t need extracted and he referred me to an oral surgeon for a bone graft since the original dentist only shoved bone graft material in my left maxillary sinus. In June, I had the bone graft procedure and immediately started having problems. The day after the surgery, I had blood pouring out of my left nostril and developed and very nasty sinus infection. Antibiotics cleared up the infection but I continued to have pain and swelling.
Avatar n tn The periodontist is recommending extraction, bone graft, and implant. Are there any other options to treat and save this tooth?? I've heard some people get tooth roots "amputated" -- does that offer options for sealing a hole in the tooth, and replanting the post properly?? Are there any other questions I should be asking the dentist or options I should be exploring before I agree to extraction and grafting... Any perspectives would be much, much, much appreciated!
Avatar f tn If there is significant bone resorption due to periodontal disease and primary closure of extraction site is not achievable, bone graft to preserve alveolar ridge may not be appropriate. Mutual rapport between you and your treating dentist is extremely important. If you do'nt understand your dentist 's explanation, keep on inquing until you are fully aware of everythong. Please keep in mind many treatment problems arise from poor communications between patient and health care providers.
Avatar m tn I went for a cleaning appt , when they did x-rays the tooth deteriated in the gumline and bone .An oral surgeon extracted the tooth and did a bone graph due to bone loss. I was never givien antibiotics. After a wk I still had swelling in my face and the site was oozing pus. It was the weekend I had antibiotics of my husbands (enough for 3 days)I was sure this was an infection.I made an appt w/the oral surgeon . My jaw felt dislocated I couldnt chew and could barely open my mouth.
Avatar m tn d consider myself in good health and was surprised to hear from him that most times a bone graph is needed. Waiting 9 months with a flipper is longer than I hoped. Should I get a second opinion about the bone graph? If so, what should I expect to see the doctor do to evaluate the condition of my bone?
Avatar f tn I had an extraction and bone graft on a molar (tooth #3) a bit over a month and a half ago (a month and 3 weeks to be exact). Yesterday when brushing, I noticed I started bleeding a bit from the extraction area, and when I took a close look, I noticed some white/yellow spots peeping out of the this area. I’m a bit worried as I didn’t notice this before. There’s 0 pain, and 0 swelling in the area, no foul orders.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to open the gum tissue and place a bone graft into the area around the tooth and help secure it - the tooth?
Avatar f tn I also need to have a tooth extraction and trying to wait until end of tx. The one with the root canal has root fracture. I understand your frustration. I feel like yeah one more thing to loose,..]? I don't know if it is directly related to IFN; but I was wondering it might be a stress fracture due to the teeth grinding at night during tx. My tooth is not a healthy tooth to begin with through, it is root canaled for about 12 years.
Avatar f tn The dentist wanted to do a root canal, I had had two very bad experiences with root canals so I chose extraction after a week of antibiotics. Today, after my tooth was removed, when I make a sucking motion in my mouth air came thru the hole the tooth used to be in from my NOSE. I told the nurse who then told me to hold my nose and blow. Sure enough, air came out of the hole, she could hear it. So I was told my root had perforated my sinus cavity.
Avatar m tn From the x-ray of my implant, I found that my implant is too close to tooth #9 and the bone in between my implant and tooth #9 not grow much to integrate with the implant. I could also see the implant through my front gum, the gray color show off. I deeply worried and began to consult with some oral surgeons and some implant specialist. When they see the x-ray, all their first reaction is: This implant is not good. So, I took a CT Scan to see the implant 3-dimension.

Avatar n tn If the tooth is savable, if the amount of bone around the tooth is adequate, if the bone quality is good, if the gum is healthy, if the tooth is solid and not loose, if there are no cracks to the bone, these are all indications for keeping a tooth and restoring it with an onlay.
Avatar f tn About 3 days ago I had a tooth extraction with a bone graft done. No problems with any of it. However, I now have the sore throat and beginning congestion of a cold that's starting to rear it's ugly head. what can I do to treat the cold that won're bother the sutures? I'm concerned about the coughing causing them to pull out, as well as all the gunk possibly causing the area to become inflamed. Anyone deal with a cold after oral surgery before? Thanks for any help.
Avatar f tn Now the area that had the chain (that had sunken in after the tooth was extracted and I was so concerned about) has quite a bit of bone loss and I most likely and going to get a bone graft tomorrow. My oral surgeon said he couldn't be 100% sure what he could do until he opened the area, so we have several different plans discussed just in case.
Avatar f tn After seeing 3 specialist, I was instructed that a dental bone graft was my only option, the bones was too damaged to even do a bridge. The dentist who extracted the tooth also took 90% of the bone in the area with the tooth. I went to a very reputable oral surgeon, he was rated as the best in the area. I was told that I would have minimal pain and that I would be so surprised at how quickly I would recover. As soon as the novocaine wore off, I began having excruciating pain.
