Orthodontic extrusion, a process to generate bone. An orthodontic appliance is placed to pull the tooth that has a bone loss around it. This traction will generate bone and gingiva as the tooth is extruded. During the process, it is necessary to reduce the tooth as it gets extruded to avoid unwanted contacts. In cases where the tooth can be preserved, it can be restored. In cases where it is necessary to remove it, it can be replaced with an implant since the necessary bone to place it correctly has already been achieved. An optimum functional and aesthetic result can be achieved.
