If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, it can usually be fixed with a filling, crown or other dental treatment. Occasionally, damage to teeth may be so advanced that it is necessary to take out the tooth. In order to maintain dental health your dentist may recommend a tooth extraction.
A bone graft or regenerative surgery is a treatment for the gum disease called periodontitis used to recreate bone and soft supporting tissues. People with periodontitis lose gum coverage and bone support around their teeth. Regenerative surgery regrows these lost tissues.
