Missing teeth over a period of time can cause your jaw bone to atrophy or resorb. This often results in poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for the placement of dental implants as well as long term shifting of remaining teeth and changes to facial structure. Most patients, in these situations, are not candidates for dental implants.
Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease, or injuries. The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw. Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw. In addition, special membranes may be utilized that dissolve under the gum to protect the bone graft, as well as encourage bone regeneration. This is called guided bone regeneration, or guided tissue regeneration.
How Can Bone Grafting Help Me?
Fortunately, today we have the ability to grow bone where it is needed. This makes the bone viable for the opportunity to place dental implants, but it also gives us a chance to restore structure and functionality of the bone for aesthetic appearance. The bone grafting procedure performed but not limited to, at Jessen Oral Surgery include:
- Sinus Lift
- Ridge Augmentation
- Socket Preservation
- Jaw Bone Health
