Bone Grafting

What is Bone Graffing

Bone grafting is a procedure in which a replacement bone filler is used to fill in depressed areas where bone has been lost to either missing teeth, injury or disease of the bone, gum and tooth structure.

Am I A Candidate?

Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies and is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants. In these situations, the patient is not a candidate for placement of dental implants. In order to place dental implants, Dr. Potter may need to build up lost bone to provide a better foundation and support structure for your implant.

What Are The Benefits Of Bone Graffing?

With bone grafting, in addition to having the opportunity to replace bone where it is missing, we also 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 esthetic appearance of the face and jawbone. Concavities in the jaw can cause a depression in the facial structure. Without proper bone and tooth support, the patients facial features can have a sunken look which is a sign of aging.
