Bone Grafting

Improve the Health & Appearance of Your Gum Line with Bone Grafting

What is
Bone Grafting?

Your periodontist may suggest procedures to regenerate bone or gum tissue lost in certain areas where the bone loss pattern is conducive for regeneration. Bone grafting is where natural or synthetic bone is used to provide a scaffold for promoting bone growth.

When is bone grafting necessary?

When a tooth is removed, the area of jawbone directly beneath or above it begins to recede. This loss of bone can continue over time, often resulting in facial changes such as sunken lips or cheeks.

How is bone grafting done?

It was once thought that dental implants could not be fitted if a patient had insufficient jawbone. Thanks to advances in medical technology, however, bone can now be rebuilt. The procedure involves adding bone or bonelike materials to the jaw. After grafting you will have to wait several months for the grafted material to fuse with the existing bone. Contact a registered dental clinic for more information.
