Bone Grafts

SERVICES

What is a Bone Graft?

Once teeth are lost, the bone around the jaw begins to deteriorate. Dr. Sweeney, Dr. Spoor or Dr. Ansong may recommend bone grafts for lost teeth because of trauma, gum disease, or injury. Bone grafts are used to replace and regenerate lost bone. Bone grafts are also used to restore facial contour, and to establish normal jawbone height and width.

Why Would I Need a Bone Graft?

Healthy bone regeneration prevents future problems and complications. People who suffer from periodontal disease may require bone grafts to save the tooth or teeth. If your bone is damaged or missing, the tooth involved and the surrounding teeth will eventually fall out. Some dental implant patients also require bone grafts, as there is not enough bone to hold the implant.

Types of Bone Grafts

Healthy bone regeneration prevents future problems and complications. People who suffer from periodontal disease may require bone grafts to save the tooth or teeth. If your bone is damaged or missing, the tooth involved and the surrounding teeth will eventually fall out. Some dental implant patients also require bone grafts, as there is not enough bone to hold the implant.

Bone Grafts

This type of bone graft uses human bone that comes from a certified tissue bank. Dental Specialties Northwest only uses tissue banks that are certified and have impeccable standards.

Bone Grafts

Non-human bone, which has had all of the proteins removed, leaves a calcified material functioning as a template and scaffolding for new bone formation. A big advance of xenografts is that you don’t have to use your own bone.

Bone Grafts

This type of bone graft involves tissue taken from part of the patient’s body. Sites include intraoral sites or bone harvested from the hipbone, which is a more extensive procedure.
