Bone Grafting to Salvage a Periodontally Diseased Tooth in Portsmouth, NH
As much as we appreciate dental implants to replace missing teeth, we especially love to save natural teeth when possible. Our patient’s bicuspid tooth had severe bone damage due to periodontal disease. Rather than extracting it, we removed the disease-causing bacteria and rebuilt the bone with a bone graft. The tooth now has a good long-term prognosis.
