When a tooth is extracted from the mouth, a significant void or crater is created where the tooth once was. In addition, the bone surrounding the extraction site loses an average of 50% of its volume within the first twelve months. This loss of bone in the jaw creates complications for the adjacent teeth, the overall bite and the extraction site itself. This also hinders the restorative success of the missing tooth site, whether it is with a dental implant, a bridge or a denture.
