In severe cases of dental problems where no amount of intervention is possible to restore or correct damage, the final treatment is to remove it. This is usually done by extractions and bone graft.
Dental extraction, or exodontia, is defined as the removal of tooth that is caused from varied reasons. These reasons can be severe tooth decay, which is a common cause, or impacted tooth that crowds the mouth. Impacted tooth are your tooth that has not completely emerged because your mouth area is not sufficient enough to hold a number of teeth. This impacted tooth will remain under your gums or bones until it finds an ample space to grow.
Wisdom tooth usually is impacted. When it does emerge, it disrupts the formation of your teeth causing you to have biting problems and other inconveniences. That is where tooth extraction can help straighten this problem out.
A bone graft is commonly done after extraction. Your teeth are put in place by your jawbone. The root of all your teeth is contained in a bone and attached to nerves and other structures. If your tooth has gone massive extraction, your bone will lose support. With that, your bone begins to corrode and causes a somewhat hollow shape. To correct this problem, your dentist will have to preserve your bone by means of bone graft. In this procedure, human bone granules are put into your teeth as soon as extraction occurs then covered with a protective substance where it is stitched to close the socket.
