What Is Bone Grafting?
Bone grafting is a dental procedure used to fill in damaged or missing areas of the jaw, usually due to an accident or periodontal disease. Bone grafts are most commonly performed in the front portion of the lower jaw, where it is easier for patients to get implants and dentures. The bone will be taken from another area in your body or a cadaver donor. It is then used to restore the bone of the jaw, typically to prepare it for further treatments.
Understanding the Benefits of Bone Grafting
Dr. Leslie Sultan finds that there are several advantages to undergoing bone grafting procedures in his state-of-the-art office. Bone grafting:
- Restores the underlying skeletal structure of the face and jaw, which provides support for facial muscles.
- Improves appearance by creating a smoother smile line and better positioning of teeth.
- Creates a more youthful look by filling in any hollows or sunken areas that may have been present before treatment.
- Creates an ideal surface for dental implants and other prosthetics to be placed on without discomfort or further damage. This can save you time at future appointments by avoiding unnecessary procedures to repair your oral health.
