Bone Grafting Stories
Once of the unfortunate effects of missing teeth is that the bone beneath the gums will often deteriorate over time without the stimulation of tooth roots. This makes a solid dental implant placement very challenging. Bone grafting techniques are used to add bone density in the jaw for the additional support needed for implants. Our practice provides many different types of bone grafting procedures to ensure that dental implants are successful for our patients. Most of the time, these treatments can be performed in our practice. Conveniently, bone grafting can also be done after a tooth extraction to preserve the empty socket for a future dental implant.
Bone grafting procedures have given many of our patients the opportunity to receive a new, healthy smile with dental implants. Some of these happy patients have shared their stories.
