bone graft

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: cskeels247  (7 years ago)
I want to have my upper right 2nd molar extracted. It doesn't touch the bottom molar therefore I really don't need it to chew. I have decay under the crown that is on the tooth now. Dentist will not remove the tooth without doing a bone graft. I am not going to have an implant at a later date, so why do I have to spend the additional $350.00 for a bone graft?

If you are not doing an implant, then grafting is not necessary. Find a dentist who will not push unnecessary procedures.
