When your jawbone begins to deteriorate from tooth loss, gum disease, or trauma, it can cause issues with your mouth structure and appearance. If you’re thinking about getting dental implants, a weak jawbone could prevent you from getting them placed. This problem, however, is reversible through bone regeneration.
Through bone regeneration, we will be able to stimulate the growth of new bone so that your jawbone will be strong enough to properly support your natural teeth and new dental implants. This is done by placing bone grafting material in the area that needs strengthening.
The procedure first begins by removing a piece of bone from another area of your body. This can even be from a stronger section of your jawbone. Other options include using bone from a donor or a synthetic one. We will then pull back the gum and place the bone material, causing new bone to eventually grow.
When you come in for a bone regeneration procedure, you’ll be able to step out of the office with a stronger jawbone. Here are some other benefits you can look forward to:
