Bone Grafts


If you have lost a tooth due to periodontal disease, injury, or infection, a dental implant is the best and safest long-term solution to restore your smile. You will love how natural your new restorations will look, feel, and function. If, however, bone loss has occurred, bone grafting may be necessary for the success of your dental implant procedure.

What Happens When a Tooth Is Lost?

When you lose one or more teeth, the surrounding bone will begin to deteriorate or resorb, making it challenging to replace your missing teeth using dental implants. Fortunately, with today’s modern bone-grafting techniques, we are able to rebuild the lost bone, providing a stable foundation for your new dental implants, while restoring your proper facial contours.

Bone Grafting Overview

Bone grafting is a simple surgical procedure that we typically perform at our dental office under local anesthesia. We first make a small incision in your gum to gain access to the bone where we place the sterile and safe grafting material. Soon, your body will begin to build new bone surrounding the graft leaving you with a solid base able to support a dental implant.

Bone grafting is sometimes used to save teeth at risk of loss or extraction due to severe periodontal disease which can cause bone loss. Regenerating the bone through grafting increases bone support and keeps the teeth in place. In many cases, we may recommend depositing bone grafting material into a tooth socket after extraction to allow for future restoration with dental implants.
