Bone Grafting

GRAFTS IMPROVE THE RESULTS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS

A beautiful smile needs a solid foundation of healthy bone. Your bone volume may be lost over time as a result of prolonged gum disease, or the natural deterioration of bone that occurs when a tooth is removed.

This low bone density can present several problems:

  • Your facial structure changes appearance, such as a receding chin.
  • Dentures do not fit as well or feel as comfortable resting on your gums.
  • Inability to successfully place dental implants due to low bone density.
  • The sinus membrane sags into empty space left by your bone tissue.

PRESERVE AND PROTECT HEALTHY BONE DENSITY

Bone grafting is an excellent treatment to prepare you for tooth restoration, or to preserve the bone you have. Grafting material spurs your body to rebuild its structure and is incorporated in the following procedures.
