A process called Bone Grafting may be suggested to you as an option, as this is most commonly placed at the time of the extraction. Bone Grafting isn’t as scary as it sounds. Put simply, it is the process of adding a substance to the extraction site to prevent the bone from shrinking away as quickly as it otherwise would.
In other words, it tries to stop the site from changing too much, which allows the option of dental implants in the near future.
Our clinic offers multiple forms of Sedation, for those a little anxious at the prospect of an extraction. Options range from ‘Happy Gas’ (Nitrous oxide) through to General Anaesthesia, if required. Speak to your dentist today about which option might be suitable for you.
