Is a bone graft necessary after extraction if replacement tooth is a denture?

Bone graft in extraction socket
if you are getting a denture you should know that bone loss will continue at a faster rate due to the pressure placed on bone by the denture
to slow this process bone graft could be helpful. Especially if the graft is a type that does not resorb fast ( synthetic/ or xenograft)
