Jawbone loss can cause many problems in your day-to-day life, especially if you’re looking to get dental implants. Bone grafting is designed to address this issue. We transplant bone from another part of your body to your jawbone, allowing us to rebuild it.
who's a good candidate for bone grafting?
Bone grafting is ideal for patients who:
Want dental implants but don’t have sufficient jawbone density
Are experiencing oral health issues due to reduced jawbone, such as tooth loss
Dislike the way that jawbone loss has altered their appearance.
There are several reasons why you could be experiencing jawbone deterioration. For instance, it often occurs when you lose teeth and don’t replace them. This empty space in your mouth doesn’t stimulate the jawbone, which leads to significant bone loss over time.
Some patients also experience jawbone loss due to periodontal disease.
what to expect from bone grafting
Before bone grafting, we will first examine your mouth to determine the cause of the deterioration. If your jawbone loss occurred because of periodontal disease, we will remove the diseased tissue.
We will then repair any bone damage and fill the damaged area with bone graft material.
