BONE GRAFTING

Insufficient bone or gum structure does not automatically keep you from getting dental implants. We may be able to use bone grafting surgery or soft-tissue augmentation to build a solid foundation for the dental implants to adhere to.

 

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure where a sample of bone is taken from a part of the patient’s body and grafted to the jawbone. Sometimes, we may choose to use synthetic bone instead of real bone. This procedure is performed a few months before the dental implant surgery to ensure that the bone graft is solid to support the dental implants. Bone grafting makes the entire process a little longer, but helps to make sure there is enough bone for the implants to latch onto.

 

TOOTH EXTRACTIONS

A dental extraction is the procedure to remove a tooth from your mouth. A dental extraction is most commonly required if one of your teeth is damaged beyond practical repair. The most common reasons for tooth extractions include: 

  • Severe tooth decay or infection may make it impossible or too costly to repair a tooth
  • Advanced gum disease may required a tooth to be pulled so it doesn’t affect the supporting tissues and bone structures of your mouth
  • A tooth may be extracted if it is blocking other teeth from coming in
  • During orthodontic work, teeth may need to be extracted to create room for the teeth that are being moved into place
  • Wisdom teeth are often extracted either before or after they come in
