Bone Grafting at Boiling Springs Family Dental

bone graft

Bone grafting is a dental procedure that involves adding bone or a bone substitute to an area of the jaw where bone loss has occurred. This technique is often used to provide a stable foundation for dental implants or to restore bone volume in areas that have experienced atrophy due to tooth loss, gum disease, or trauma.

During a bone grafting procedure, the dentist or oral surgeon places the graft material in the targeted area and covers it with a protective membrane. Over time, the body’s natural processes integrate the graft material with the existing bone, promoting new bone growth and creating a stronger foundation for future dental restorations.

Bone grafting is essential for successful implant placement, as implants require sufficient bone density to fuse with and provide stability. This procedure also contributes to maintaining facial structure, preventing bone loss, and improving overall oral health. Different types of graft materials can be used, including the patient’s own bone, synthetic materials, or donor bone. The choice of graft material depends on the individual’s needs and the specific situation.

Five stars. Dr. Williams and staff are very friendly and supportive. I’ve gone for regular check ups, fillings, and crowns and never had a bad experience. They were very accommodating when I had a few last minute emergencies and followed up regularly to ensure I was okay. 100% recommend to anyone looking for a dentist.
