What Exactly Is Bone Grafting?
We use various techniques to restore your jawbone and distinctive appearance. We use plasma-rich growth factors to hasten recovery after bone grafting and other procedures, a process that involves using proteins found naturally in the bloodstream.
We separate platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood using a centrifuge before injecting them into the treatment site to help your body heal.
What Happens if You Don’t Treat Your Bone Loss?
If you don’t treat the bone loss in in your mouth, your sinus may collapse in your upper jaw. To correct this, we use a delicate instrument to carefully lift your sinus cavity and place bone graft material underneath. After the bone has healed, you will be able to receive dental implants.
Your jawbone is quite literally the foundation of your teeth. When your jaw has experienced significant degeneration, bone loss can occur. This will affect how your mouth functions and prevent you from restoring your smile through dental implants. Our dentist will remove a portion of your own or a donor's bone and place it in the area of bone loss.
What Happens After the Bone Is Grafted?
The grafted bone will osseointegrate and blend in with the rest of your jaw. Once completed, you can have your dental implants placed and begin reaping the benefits. If your bone loss is severe enough to compromise your facial aesthetics, we can use bone grafts to restore your jaw's natural, smooth shape in a procedure known as ridge augmentation.
