Bone Grafting from a Maxillofacial Expert

If you have one or more missing teeth or have had a tooth extracted, it’s important to restore proper bone levels in your jaw. As the foundation of your smile, your bone plays a vital role in your oral health and function. It supports your teeth and helps preserve your facial structure. But it needs the stimulation of tooth roots to remain dense and strong. When teeth are extracted or lost, the jawbone no longer receives stimulation and will resorb and shrink. Bone loss can lead to shifting and loosening of remaining teeth, loss of lip and cheek support, and jaw joint problems. Without enough bone support, you may not be able to replace your teeth with dentures or dental implants. To help ensure that these functional and aesthetic consequences do not occur or worsen, our dentist and dental team at Adara Surgical Institute provide bone grafting in Issaquah, WA. This procedure restores the jawbone volume or density that has been lost due to missing teeth to improve your oral health and function.

The Process for Restoring Lost Bone

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that involves placing dental bone graft material in areas where the bone has resorbed, or a tooth has been extracted. The purpose of bone grafting is to restore the proper density, height, and width of the bone in the jaw. Bone grafts can be either from the patient or from a donor source and may either be a bone block or granules. In many cases, we offer bone grafting treatment before we place dental implants or during implant surgery to ensure the long-term success of dental implants. Below are additional bone grafting techniques.
Socket preservation is a bone grafting procedure we complete after tooth extraction. This involves packing bone graft material into the empty tooth socket. Socket preservation slows the resorption process where the tooth is missing. It can also help preserve the health of the bone until a dental implant can be placed.
Ridge augmentation refers to a bone grafting procedure that restores the natural density and contours of part or the entirety of a jaw ridge. Restoring healthy bone levels to a jaw arch can make dentures more comfortable and fitted to your gumline.
When bone in the premolar or molar areas of the jaw has lost density or volume, you may benefit from a sinus lift. Gently lifting the sinus cavity, bone grafting material can be placed beneath to restore proper bone height and density. A complex surgery, a skilled oral surgeon is the best choice if you need this treatment.
