Rejuvenate your face today! A bone graft can restore your youthful appearance and the full functionality of your jaw.
Some patients experience bone loss because of periodontal disease, oral infection, or physical trauma. When the jawbone deteriorates, it becomes weak and can even collapse. Bone graft surgery will prevent these problems and return strength to the jawbone.
If you are missing teeth, you might want to enhance your smile with dental implants. Unfortunately, patients suffering from low jawbone volume cannot undergo dental implants surgery. If you are suffering from low jawbone density, you may want to consider bone grafting at Providence Dental in North Las Vegas.
Bone Graft Surgery
Bone grafting involves building up missing bone around the teeth.
Autogenous Bone Grafting | Taking bone from one area of the body and transplanting it to the jawbone.
Allografts | Taking cadaver bone from a bone bank, screening it for safety, and placing it into the jawbone.
Xenografts | Using bone that comes from a nonhuman source. This type of bone graft surgery is best for patients who require a significant amount of bone.
Dr. Kim also provides sinus lift surgery. During a sinus lift, Dr. Kim will add bone to the upper jaw rather than the lower jaw. A sinus lift will restore the thickness of the sinus wall and allow for the placement of dental implants.
Bone loss begins with tooth loss, so see your dental provider if you are missing one or more teeth. A dense jawbone is crucial to a beautiful smile and easy chewing and speaking. There’s no need to put off treatment, because bone grafting or tooth replacement are simple and comfortable solutions.
