It may be impossible to preserve a tooth for various reasons, such as a cavity that is too deep below the bone or a fracture of the crown of the tooth. The only possible option in such situations is to extract the tooth. Following the extraction, in most cases it is advisable to proceed with a bone preservation treatment to prevent bone loss.
Bone preservation is a simple surgical intervention, which consists of placing bone particles of animal or human origin in the alveolus from which the sick tooth was extracted. This intervention will promote better healing of the gums and the bone.
Dr. Marie-Ève Costisella will recommend a bone preservation treatment following a tooth extraction, if needed, depending on your dental situation. Every situation is different. We will take the time to explain all the possible options, as well as the benefits, the risks and disadvantages.
