Dentist Pasadena, Texas: Bone Grafting
When teeth are extracted their remains a hole that once contained the tooth. Immediately after extraction is the easiest time to preserve bone volume. Bone grafting material is placed into the fresh extraction site. The bone grafting material is condensed into a solid dense mass. A barrier is placed over the bone graft to contain the material. Several months latter a dental implant can be easily placed because the bone is solid and dense.
