A Bone Graft Opens Up Many Possibilities For Your Smile
A bone graft is a type of oral surgery that strengthens your jaw for dental implants by using a special bone grafting material or donor tissue. Missing teeth are often the cause of bone loss because your jaw begins to deteriorate around the holes left by your missing tooth roots. Your jawbone can also be naturally thin or gradually lose its density with age. A bone graft reverses this deterioration, giving your jaw a thick, sturdy foundation for treatments like implants.
Once your jaw has healed from your bone graft, we can recommend a variety of implant options. If you have one or multiple adjacent missing teeth, we can restore implants with a dental crown or dental bridge. We can even use a bone graft to prepare you for a full-mouth reconstruction using implant-secured dentures or All-on-4® dental implants!
Relax Completely During Your Procedure
If you happen to be nervous about your bone graft procedure or simply don’t want to feel anything during your appointment, we can keep you relaxed with dental sedation. With IV sedation, you will probably doze off and remember little to nothing about the procedure.
