Following tooth extraction, if the walls of the socket are very thick, they will usually fill naturally with bone in two to three months. However, this type of healing will not be as predictable when the walls of your socket are very thin (such as in your upper and lower front teeth). In this situation, Dr. Michael H. Connor may use bone grafting for implants in Orlando, Florida. Please call our office for more information about this aspect of implantology at 407-277-3300. Our periodontist and team look forward to caring for you at Orlando Periodontics & Implants.
