A 35-year-old member asked:

Information: I would google extraction and dental bone grafting. Basically the tooth will be extracted, the area cleaned of all infected tissue and a graft material placed (not needed if all walls are intact and you plan on an implant shortly) and the area is left to heal. Also talk to your surgeon as the web can give you too much information and every case is different.
