Dental Bone Grafting, the Solution for Low Bone Density
Bone grafting is a procedure that takes bone from another part of your body, or from a bone bank, and transfers it to the treatment site. Our dentist will effectively attach the donor dental bone grafts to the existing bone with titanium screws. Over time, the bone merges, delivering healthier bone density volume.
Ridge Augmentation for Reshaping the Gums
Performed to restore the natural contour of your gum line, ridge augmentation is necessary when the deterioration of the bone at the site of a missing tooth changes the shape of the empty socket. Often, the gum tissue will indent, creating an unattractive appearance and threatening the fit of your dentures. With ridge augmentation, our dentists place bone grafting material at the treatment site.
Ridge Preservation to Prevent Dimpling of the Gum Line
As a preventative measure, our dentists can place bone grafting materials in the empty socket immediately after an extraction. This encourages new bone growth and helps to minimize the process of bone degradation.
