Bone Grafting

What is Bone Grafting?

Your teeth, nerves, and blood vessels are supported, structured, and protected by your jaw and facial bones. Gum disease, tooth extraction, and other forms of trauma can all compromise the height, shape, and density of this bone.

When a tooth is extracted, for example, patients are left with a hole in their bone where the tooth once resided. While it eventually fills in, the area tends to shrink, drawing bone away from neighboring teeth. Grafting materials can be used to help preserve the existing bone level during tooth extraction. If you are considering implant-supported restoration in the future, bone grafts are especially beneficial.
