If you reside in the Fort Lauderdale, FL area and are considering ways to repair your smile after the bone loss has occurred, you may be referred to Dr. Leslie Sultan and his team to determine if you are a good candidate for bone grafting. This procedure helps restore the bone in the jaw, oftentimes to address facial contours and preparing the area for the placement of dental implants.
What is bone grafting?
Bone grafting is best described as a procedure used to replace or restore lost bone. It involves taking material from another part of the body and transplanting it into the area where there is missing bone. Bone grafting may also be performed with manufactured materials as well. The transplanted material serves as a scaffold for new bone growth, which forms several months after the procedure.
Dr. Leslie Sultan and his team are experienced in performing all types of bone grafts, including sinus lifts, onlay/inlay grafts, block grafts, and socket preservation. During your consultation with Dr. Leslie Sultan at his office, he will discuss the best option for a bone replacement that meets your individual needs and goals.
