Bone grafting is often closely associated with dental restorations such as bridge work and dental implants. In the majority of cases, the success of a restoration procedure can hinge on the height, depth, and width of the jawbone at the implant site. When the jawbone associated with missing teeth shrinks, or has sustained significant damage, the implant(s) cannot be supported on this unstable foundation and bone grafting is usually recommended for the ensuing restoration. We can also use your actual tooth to perform the bone graft by using your extracted tooth’s healthy structure, utilizing a special grinder and performing the bone graft with the ground up material.
An extraction is the process of having your tooth removed usually because of disease, trauma or crowding. If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, your dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment customized to your needs.
This is a common dental procedure often performed following a tooth extraction to help recreate the natural contour of the gums and jaw that may have been lost due to bone loss as a result of a tooth extraction, or for another reason.
