Bone Grafting Reviews
When patients lose teeth, they often don't realize that their overall oral health will suffer. Without a tooth in the socket, the jaw bone begins to deteriorate because it loses stimulation typically caused when a tooth is present. The longer a tooth is missing, the more the jaw bone will deteriorate. A missing tooth can also cause surrounding teeth to move into misalignment. Fortunately, bone grafting can combat jaw bone loss, preserve tooth sockets, prevent misalignment, and even provide support for the placement of dental implants.
There are a variety of bone grafting procedures available, from socket preservation to prepare for future dental implants to sinus lifts, which restore the already-thin upper jaw bone. Your treatment will depend on your specific needs; however, if you are interested in hearing about bone grafting and how it can benefit your oral health and your plans for implants, we encourage you to watch the testimonials below. Each video features a patient explaining why they needed a bone graft and how it has improved their oral health and function.
