A Dental Bone Graft for Augmentation
We can increase bone density by adding to the existing bone. This is accomplished with a dental bone graft that allows our doctors to take bone from your body, your chin for example, or from a bone bank, and attach it to the site of deficiency with bio-compatible titanium posts. The new donor tissue integrates with the existing bone over time, delivering a healthier smile.
Ridge Augmentation and Preservation to Protect Your Smile
After extraction, bone loss can change the shape of the empty socket. Your gum tissue may develop an indentation over the site of the lost tooth. With augmentation, we are able to administer dental bone graft material at the socket, providing sufficient bone to correct the contour of your gums. Preservation works similarly, and also relies upon a dental bone graft, but is used more proactively. The dental bone graft is placed at the time of extraction, anticipating the eventual bone loss.
