Bone grafting is a procedure that can help restore your oral health and support your teeth if you have experienced bone loss due to tooth loss or periodontal disease. When the bone in your jaw deteriorates, it can cause instability in your teeth, increasing the risk of further tooth loss. Our experienced dentist can provide bone grafting to enhance your bone density and lay the groundwork for dental implants or other restorative treatments.

Bone grafting is often recommended before placing dental implants to ensure they have a strong and stable foundation. However, it can also be part of periodontal treatment plans to strengthen areas affected by severe gum disease. During a bone graft procedure, our dentist will transplant bone tissue to the affected area of your jaw. This tissue can come from another part of your jaw, your body or a donor. In some cases, synthetic bone materials may be used.

The bone grafting process involves the transplanted bone fusing with your existing jawbone, promoting new bone growth and creating a robust structure. Using your own bone typically yields the best results, but other sources are effective alternatives. The integration of the new bone can take several months, but it is a vital step in ensuring the success of future dental restorations, such as implants.
