Why was bone removed?

Was it previously missing due to pre existing periodontal disease? or sometimes the dentist has to section the tooth with a drill to get the broken-down tooth out which sounds plausible because there was extensive decay. if you had a bone graft right away then you probably didn't have a dry socket.

Sorry! I wish I could be more helpful! I feel like I'm failing you...but I wasn't there. :)
