Bone Grafting

When a patient is missing a tooth or teeth, the jawbone around that area will reduce in size. When this occurs, the area that the tooth or teeth used to be no longer supports a tooth the way it once did. In circumstances like this, patients typically are not candidates for dental implants without increasing the amount of bone in that area.

Oral & Maxillofacial surgery allows the capability of growing bone in areas such as these so that it may be, once again, suitable for dental implants. This gives the patient the ability to restore their natural look and feel inside their mouth without having serious complications down the road. A longer lasting permanent artificial tooth solution has been made further available by bone grafting.

There are many surgical options for obtaining and placing bone grafts. In some situations, bone may need to be harvested from the patient’s own bone. However, there are now many situations in which synthetic bone can be used. Depending on the situation, surgery may be performed in the office or hospital. Regardless of where the surgery is performed, it is often a day surgery procedure.
