Bone Grafting Returns What You’ve Lost
If you have one or more missing teeth or have had a tooth extracted, it’s important to restore proper bone levels in your jaw. As the foundation of your smile, your bone plays a vital role in your oral health and function. It supports your teeth and helps preserve your facial structure. But it needs the stimulation of tooth roots to remain dense and strong. When teeth are extracted or lost, the jawbone no longer receives stimulation and will resorb, shrink, and disappear.
Why See a Periodontist for Treatment?
A periodontist is a recognized dental specialist who has spent additional years of training in treatments related to the soft tissues and bone. Along with extensive experience in complex bone grafting procedures, a periodontist also has the trained eye to optimize soft tissue aesthetics as well. Seeking bone grafting treatment from a periodontist like Dr. Gadia can have lasting benefits for your health, function, and smile aesthetics. Additionally, as an expert in dental implants, our periodontist can not only help you qualify for dental implants but also predictably replace all your missing teeth with this secure, lasting, and life-like solution!
The Process for Restoring Lost Bone
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that involves placing dental bone graft material in areas where the bone has resorbed, or a tooth has been extracted. We offer bone grafting in Chicago, IL with the purpose of restoring the proper density, height, and width of the bone in the jaw in preparation for dental implants. We partner with multiple insurance providers to make your treatment affordable and achievable. In general, bone grafting may involve one or more of the following procedures:
Socket preservation is a bone grafting procedure our periodontist completes after tooth extraction. This involves packing bone graft material into the empty tooth socket. Socket preservation slows the resorption process where the tooth is missing. It can also help preserve the health of the bone until a dental implant can be placed.
