It can be embarrassing to have a tooth missing or frustrating to have to deal with constant gum pain. Thankfully, modern dental technology has done wonders for oral health. We have been able to clean, fix, and even replace missing teeth to give you back your smile. One of the most helpful surgical procedures available has been bone grafting.
What Is Bone Grafting?
Bone grafting is a type of surgical procedure that involves place new bone or replace with bone substitutes around a broken bone or bone defects. Often for dental procedures, bone grafting is used to restore your bone to its previous form following gum disease, tooth loss, trauma or to maintain bone structure. This procedure is also sometimes paired with other treatment, such as receiving dental implants, in order to achieve the best results possible.
How Does Bone Grafting Benefit Me?
Bone grafting is used to restore and maintain your facial bone structure and allows you to smile again. When your missing teeth or do not have the support of an underlying bone in your mouth, it can prematurely age your face and cause you to look older than you are. With bone grafting, you can return your smile to its former beauty.
Not only does this type of procedure bring back your smile, but it benefits your health as well. Lack of teeth or increased oral pain can turn eating into a nightmare. This could cause you to avoid eating or even avoid others due to embarrassment. Thanks to procedures like bone grafting, you can get back to what’s really important and enjoy living again.
