Bone Grafts

Bone grafts play a vital role in restorative dentistry by providing a solid foundation for dental implants and other treatments. If you have suffered from bone loss due to gum disease, injury or tooth extraction, a bone graft can help rebuild and strengthen the bone, ensuring a stable and healthy smile.

What Bone Grafts Can Help With

Bone grafts are designed to address various dental issues, such as:

  • Insufficient bone for dental implants
  • Bone loss from gum disease
  • Jawbone deterioration after tooth extraction
  • Bone defects or injuries

By using bone grafts, you can restore the strength and structure of your jaw, making it possible to proceed with restorative dental treatments.

The Bone Graft Process

The process of getting a bone graft starts with a consultation, where our dentists will evaluate your needs and discuss the best type of graft for you. During the procedure, bone material is placed in the area where additional support is needed. The graft integrates with your natural bone, creating a solid foundation. Recovery time varies based on the extent of the graft, but most patients can return to normal activities shortly after the procedure.

Benefits of Bone Grafts

Choosing bone grafts offers several benefits, including:

  • Improved stability for dental implants
  • Prevention of further bone loss
  • Enhanced jawbone structure and strength
  • Preparation for future dental treatments
