Restoring Your Smile’s Foundation
with Bone Grafting
Bone Grafting Options
Socket preservation is a bone grafting procedure we complete after tooth extraction. This involves packing bone graft material into the empty tooth socket. Socket preservation slows the resorption process where the tooth is missing. It can also help preserve the health of the bone until a dental implant can be placed.
Ridge augmentation refers to a bone grafting procedure that restores the natural density and contours of part or the entirety of a jaw ridge. Restoring healthy bone levels to a jaw arch can make dentures more comfortable and fitted to your gumline.
The Process for Restoring Lost Bone
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that involves placing dental bone graft material in areas where the bone has resorbed or a tooth has been extracted. Bone grafting aims to restore the proper density, height, and width of the bone in the jaw.
Bone grafts can be either from the patient or a donor source and maybe a bone block or granules. In many cases, we offer bone grafting treatment before we place dental implants or during implant surgery to ensure the long-term success of dental implants. Below are additional bone grafting techniques.
