Why Dental Bone Graft Surgery?
After tooth removal, frequent re-absorption of the adjacent bone occurs, the results of which is loss of bone stature and breadth. As bone reabsorbs the overlying tissue can lose volume and its typical anatomic form. This lack of bone and gum tissue that follows tooth extraction frequently results in function loss and aesthetic defects, resulting in an unpleasant collapsed look.
With our approach to dental bone graft procedures, using a number of bone resources, the patient’s physical appearance is drastically improved.
How We Make A Dental Bone Graft Work For You.
We take a hands-on stance regarding bone preservation. Advances in dental bone graft methods and bioengineering have significantly reduced the bone and gum tissue loss that follows tooth extraction. Often such loss can be fully eliminated. This procedure is called ridge preservation bone grafting.
Dental bone graft surgery isn’t quite as scary as it may sound. Upon the extraction of any teeth, a specifically bioengineered graft substance is set into the empty tooth hollow. The graft material will support fresh bone growth and preserves bone and soft tissue after tooth extraction. This procedure vastly improves the patient’s appearance, supports healthy dental function and hygiene and the patient’s sense of general well-being.
For people who have been missing teeth for a long time and the usual resulting bone loss, we employ a number of bone graft methods to repair lacking areas. This makes possible implant placement potentials that would have been absent otherwise.
These procedures are comprised of sinus lift, dental bone graft techniques for the upper maxillary posterior areas, cortical block grafts which can be referred to as onlay block grafting for ridge split widening and height as well as bone grafting for poor bone ridge girth. Dental bone graft surgery may employ a number of bone resources, including directly from the patient receiving the procedure, human cadaver resources, animal resources and synthetic bone.
In all of these cases, a patient’s well-being is greatly improved due to an improvement in mouth function, chewing, smiling and the person’s appearance. Most patients come away from the procedure with a new, positive outlook on life. Our highly trained, professional staff is here to make sure you get the right treatment for your dental needs.
