Why A Prosthodontist for Bone Grafting

As the foundation of your smile, your bone plays an important role in your oral health and function. It supports your teeth and helps preserve your facial structure. But it needs the stimulation of tooth roots to remain dense and strong. When teeth are extracted or lost, the jawbone no longer receives stimulation and will resorb and shrink.

The Extraction and Recovery

Tooth extractions are performed every week, if not every day, at Smile Solutions Dental Implant Center in Smithfield, NC. As a result, we’ve refined our process keeping your comfort as our top priority. When you arrive, we’ll show you to your private surgical suite before administering the anesthesia services previously discussed in your consultation. You’ll quickly feel relaxed and will have no pain during your procedure. Depending on the level of sedation you receive, the most you’ll feel is minor pressure as we remove your tooth. If you have an impacted tooth, more extensive work may be required to gain access to your tooth and detach its roots. However, each step of this process will be explained to you in detail before treatment begins. Recovery periods typically last a few days during which time we may prescribe medication to minimize any discomfort. We’ll review post-extraction directions in-depth in order to avoid complications like dry socket and ensure a swift and easy recovery!
