If you’re already missing teeth and have moderate to severe bone loss, it can be difficult to get implants because implants require a certain amount of bone structure for support. A bone graft provides the necessary support you need to get implants.
A bone graft involves implanting a section of new bone in the area where your jaw has experienced bone loss. The implanted graft fuses to your natural bone and grows more bone once it’s been implanted.
Once your graft is implanted, it will take a few months for it to fully anchor into place. At that time, we can start on your dental implants or other treatments.
Losing supporting bone around your teeth allows periodontal disease to cause more tooth loss in adults than any other type of dental condition. Implanting a bone graft around areas of severe loss can help our patients keep their teeth longer!
