Bone grafting is a more common procedure than you may realize. Carrollwood Dentistry is qualified in just such procedures as bone grafting and we see to it that it is performed in a safe and comfortable manner for our patients.
The purpose of a bone graft is to transport bone from one part of your body – usually another part of your mouth – into the jaw. Bone Grafting is necessary in varied purposes. One of the key purposes where this procedure is needed is in restoring bone to its original state after trauma, for example, lost a permanent tooth. This is generally the first part of a larger procedure that ends with a dental implant. A successful dental implant requires that the bone be as close to its original size and position as possible; this will guarantee optimal results. Another reason for bone grafting is when patients are missing bone in the jaw that can cause them to look long in the face and often much older than they actually are.
One thing to remember is that bone grafting is actually a relatively simple procedure. The name “bone grafting” can conjure unsettling images, but the procedure is incredibly safe and simple. Once a bone graft has been completed, we usually move on to a dental implant.
