Why do I need bone grafting after an extraction?

After a tooth is extracted the bone in that area tends to shrink and resorb over time. This leads to loss of bone height and width where that tooth was located. Bone grafting is a simple procedure where graft material is placed in the extraction site at the time of tooth removal. The graft material stimulates bone production by your body and minimizes the shrinkage that normally occurs after a removal.
