The jawbone is essential in sustaining the structure of your teeth. Without healthy bone, not only could your teeth be in jeopardy, but also other dental procedures become impossible to complete. Dentalmed Associates can help restore your oral health to an ideal condition with our skilled bone grafts.
Bone grafts are procedures used to repair or strengthen bone by transplanting bone tissue from an outside source. Implants helps us recreate stable support for teeth and certain dental procedures.
Your teeth do more than chew food and add to your smile. They have a symbiotic relationship with the underlying jawbone as they provide stimulation to the bone. If a tooth is lost or removed, the jawbone no longer receives that stimulation and begins to atrophy. When this happens, there is no structure to sustain some dental treatments such as implants, and bone grafts become necessary.
Bone grafts have also found other uses in cosmetics. Specifically, they have been effective in repairing or improving defects in facial structures.
Dental implants must be inserted directly into your jawbone as they are supposed to replace the missing root of a tooth. Without proper support, implants cannot be placed, or even fall off completely.
Bone grafts are delicate procedures that you should only trust to the most skilled hands. Dentalmed Associates boasts 49 years of experience in oral surgery, with us, you’ll be in good hands. Call us today!
