Houston Bone Grafts
Bone grafts can be used to replace bone loss in the jaw due to periodontal disease, injury or tooth loss. At Pearl Dentistry, we can help our patients with jaw bone loss rejuvenate bone growth to strengthen their jaw, especially when dental implants are needed. Our team of dental experts use the latest medical techniques and technology to perform bone regeneration procedures for our patients.
Bone grafting in the jaw involves adding new bone to areas that have diminished or been damaged due to trauma. The new bone can be removed from the patient’s own body, often from the hip or tibia, then grafted onto the jaw bone. Bone can be used from a tissue bank, but for major bone grafts, it is best to use bone from the same patient.
Bone Grafts for Dental Implants
One of the most common reasons for performing jaw bone grafts is to enhance the jaw to receive dental implants. Gum disease can cause bone loss that leads to tooth loss. Once teeth are lost, the jaw bone often begins to deteriorate further. The bone can be too weak or too small to support the post for a dental implant. With bone grafting, the bone can be regenerated to allow for a successful dental implant surgery.
The advanced techniques in bone grafting we use at Pearl Dentistry have a high success rate for our patients. It can improve the strength and density of the jaw bone for dental implants, as well as improve the shape of the jaw for appearance sake. This is a surgical procedure that does require several visits to our office to complete. The surgery is performed in an operating room and may require overnight stays at the hospital.
