I am getting a tooth removed next Tuesday. The top right next to last tooth.
I am on antibiotic until next Tuesday. They can't do root canal because I chipped the tooth all the way to the gum line and they can't crown it, also the root is split into 2 and dentist thinks low success rate.
So she is extracting tooth next week. She has offered to do a Bone Graft in the tooth's place for an extra $325.00. I am not really concerned about the money..Just would like to know if this is a better choice rather then just get the tooth removed. Also, will this bone show as a tooth or be completely under the gums just to hold the space and keep teeth from shifting??
So is bone graft a good idea and would anyone recommend I do this..also, will the bone be completely under the gums and how will it affect my chewing?!
Thanks in advance if anyone can help me.
