Bone Grafts...: In some cases, a bone graft is not required. It may be best to have the tooth extracted and an implant placed immediately.

It May Vary: There are a number of options available for bone grafting, all with associated advantages as well as disadvantages. Your dentist and/or dental specialist should discuss the options he or she can offer you based on their experience and the indications for grafting the site. Bovine bone is a very safe option and commonly used graft material.
