Bone Grafting Rebuilds a Healthy Foundation for Your Smile
Bone loss is a common problem for many patients. Gum disease, trauma and tooth loss all cause bone deterioration in the jaw. The longer teeth remain unreplaced, the more bone loss advances. Bone grafting is an oral surgery procedure used to address bone loss. This specialized treatment restores lost bone by adding bony material to areas with defiencencies in order to prepare the jaw for implant placement.
How Does Bone Grafting Increase Implant Success?
Implants are the favored method of tooth replacement. Just like natural tooth roots, implants are surrounded by bone. Adequate bone quality and quantity are necessary to support your implants and ensure long-term success. To perform your bone graft, we may harvest tissue from your own body or use donor or biocompatible synthetic tissue. Dr. Anderson uses PIEZOSURGERY® to prepare your existing bone for the procedure. This, along with guided bone regeneration, ensures a minimally invasive procedure and reduced recovery time. Once placed, your bone graft is given time to heal and join with surrounding bone. You can then move forward with implant placement.
