There are many reasons why a bone graft procedure could help you enjoy a radiant smile. If you have missing teeth, over time your jawbone can atrophy or resorb. Not only does this cause your remaining teeth to shift, changing the structure of your face, it also makes the surrounding bone unsuitable for a dental implant. Bone grafts can also restore your smile after gum disease, traumatic injury, tumor surgery or a congenital defect.
With bone grafting we now have the opportunity to not only replace bone where it is missing, but we also have the ability to promote new bone growth in that location. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.
There are many different types of grafting and bone materials that can be used. Each bone grafting option has its own risks and benefits. Dr. Hopkins will determine which type of bone graft material best suited to your particular needs.
