A healthy jawbone provides your teeth with the support they need to stay firmly in place. Unfortunately, periodontal disease and tooth loss can lead to progressive deterioration of bone. With bone grafting, we can rebuild the foundation of a healthy smile.
Bone grafting has many benefits:
- Preventing tooth loss – a minor bone graft may be used to stabilize a loose tooth
- Preventing bone resorption – a bone graft may be placed in an extraction site to fill the void and encourage bone growth
- Creating a foundation for dental implants – where bone loss has occurred, a bone graft may be necessary to support/anchor dental implants
Dr. Paulson will do a thorough evaluation to determine if bone grafting is right for you.
