It is better to remove an impacted tooth before it affects the surrounding teeth. After the tooth is extracted, the dental bone loss is then fixed using bone grafting. Bone grafting is a procedure done to replace the bone loss in the jaw that is anchoring the teeth using one or more different bone grafting options. If you have missing teeth or bones in your upper jaw, the bone graft will be able to stimulate the bone growth needed to reshape the jaw and prepare for dental implants. These implants are used to replace missing teeth.
