Dr. Leslie Sultan and his team at the Sultan Center for Oral Facial Surgery in Fort Lauderdale, FL is an oral surgeon who offers a wide selection of oral and maxillofacial surgeries for patients in the community. In addition to procedures such as jaw reconstruction and the placement of dental implants, he also provides bone grafting. Bone grafting is a specialized procedure that is performed to help add bone to the jaw. Grafting bone is safe, effective, and predictable.
Why might I need bone grafting?
There are several reasons why a patient might consider bone grafting for their smile. They may have experienced bone loss due to periodontal disease or the loss of natural teeth. This is called bone resorption, and can cause the jaw and chin area to appear sunken in due to the loss of volume. Rebuilding the bone in this area is an effective way of restoring one’s youthful appearance. Patients might also consider bone grafting if they are thinking about certain dental procedures such as dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts that are used to replace teeth. They do require patients to have enough bone for the procedure to be successful. If bone loss is a concern, bone grafting may be done in preparation of placing dental implants in the near future.
Who is a candidate for bone grafting?
Any patient who has experienced the loss of bone and wants to rebuild the jaw bone can call the practice of Dr. Leslie Sultan to determine if they are viable candidates for the bone grafting procedure. An evaluation, complete with x-rays, will be completed to assess a patient for this or other oral surgeries.
