Protect the Foundation of Your Smile With Bone Grafts

Benefits of Bone Grafts

Bone loss is a common result of prolonged gum disease, and ultimately, leads to tooth loss as well. To preserve your beautiful smile and restore bone volume lost to periodontal disease, call San Dieguito Dental Group for a consultation. Our doctors can augment bone with permanent bone grafts, an essential treatment for anyone who has lost a significant amount of bone density and is considering dental implants.

    How Bone Grafts Work

    Your doctors will collect bone tissue from a donor site, such as the chin, or from a bone bank. The donor tissue will be attached with biocompatible titanium screws that will hold the new tissue in place until it integrates with the existing tissue. Bone grafts are a safe and effective way to increase bone volume and are often performed before surgery for dental implants. However, bone grafts must be completely healed before dental implants can be placed.

    Beyond Traditional Bone Grafts

    When bone loss causes the sinus membrane to sag, a sinus lift must be scheduled to lift the sinus membrane into its proper position and replace the bone that held it in place. Bone grafting materials are also sometimes placed into a tooth socket immediately after extraction to proactively address expected bone loss. This method, known as ridge preservation, will preserve bone and prevent the gum line from sinking. Once the ridge has receded due to bone loss, a corrective ridge augmentation may be performed to increase supportive bone density.
