Implant Site Bone Grafting: When a tooth is removed, it is common to have lost bone or for the bone around the extracted tooth to be damaged. In these cases, a bone graft will be done at the same time the tooth is removed. Adding bone at the time of extraction will help the placement of a dental implant at a later date. This procedure is called Socket Preservation.
