    Extractions And Bone Grafting in Pearland, TX

    What Is The Purpose Of Extractions And Bone Grafts?

    Our dentists may suggest tooth removal for multiple reasons. If your teeth are severely damaged, they can become a threat to the health of the surrounding teeth. In such a case, it is better to have them extracted and replaced with prosthetics.

    If you require multiple extractions for full-arch replacement, our Pearland, TX, team may recommend bone grafting procedure to maintain the natural thickness of the jawbone. This is because the bone resorbs over time after tooth loss, which can affect your candidacy for dentures or dental implants. With this technique, we can ensure that your bone remains healthy for tooth replacement procedures.

    Questions About Extractions And Bone Grafting?

    Process Of Extractions And Bone Grafting In Pearland, TX

    The first step is a consultation with one of our qualified dentists. We will perform a comprehensive oral exam to check the health of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. For tooth extraction, we will first numb the area with a local anesthetic. Our dentist will carefully remove it from the socket with minimal pain or discomfort.

    The next step is to preserve the socket with bone grafts. We will place natural or synthetic bone grafts in the extraction socket. Finally, we will suture the gum tissues over the socket to ensure that the grafting material stays in place.

    The bone grafts induce healthy bone formation in the socket. This way, your bone remains thick and healthy for replacement with implants or dentures later on.

    Treatment Aftercare with Us at Dental Specialists of Pearland

    After the procedure of extractions and bone grafting at our Pearland, TX, practice, you may experience some pain or tenderness at the extraction site, which is normal. It usually goes away on its own within a few days, but we will prescribe medication to help you during this time.

    We recommend eating a soft diet from the other side of your mouth for a few days. Avoid drinking with a straw, rinsing, or spitting forcefully for the first 24 hours. We also suggest avoiding smoking during the recovery period, as it may slow down healing. If any problem occurs, contact our team right away.
