Do you have one or more missing teeth? Did you know that once you’ve lost permanent teeth, your jawbone can actually start to be reabsorbed? This bone loss can leave patients with poor quality and low quantity of bone which is needed for the placement of dental implants. In situations where bone loss and reabsorption has occurred, the patient may not be a candidate for dental implants.
However, with our dental bone grafting in Lake Jackson, we have the ability to restore these areas where bone loss has occurred. This procedure can not only prepare your mouth for dental implant surgery but can also improve the functionality of your smile and the appearance of your face.
Lake Jackson Bone Grafting Procedure
Prior to your bone graft in Lake Jackson, we will discuss your oral and general health history along with any medications in case anything may interfere with your treatment or outcome. During a bone grafting procedure, bone from another area in your body or a special bone grafting material will be used to restore your jaw bone. After the bone grafting has completely healed, your jaw will then be strong enough to support dental implants.
