Bone Grafting After Tooth Loss

Have you noticed that after you lost a tooth, your other teeth started shifting? It may not be obvious with one missing tooth, but if you have lost many teeth, jawbone resorption becomes more evident. Without teeth, your jaw naturally shrinks and weakens because it is no longer being stimulated by the tooth roots. At this point, if you are considering replacing your missing teeth with dental implants, you may need a dental bone graft to restore bone volume to your natural jawline. Our specialized bone grafting treatment at Dental Care Solutions ensures that your jawbone will be strong enough to support dental implants, thus improving the long-term health, function, and natural beauty of your smile.

What is a Dental Bone Graft?

Specialized Dental Bone Graft Surgery

Bone grafting refers to different kinds of dental bone graft procedures that all restore proper bone levels to the jaw. Specialized bone grafting techniques vary depending on where bone loss has occurred, and include:

Bone grafting is the process of taking dental bone graft material from a donor source or the body and using it to replace the natural height and width of the jawline.
A sinus lift replaces bone in the upper back portion of the jaw, where bone loss has caused the sinus cavity to sink. By raising this membrane and inserting bone graft material beneath, proper height and density are restored.

Ridge augmentation restores the natural contours of the bone along the entire jaw ridge. Where multiple teeth are missing, this technique rebuilds the proper height and width to a large portion of the jaw so that dental implants can be securely placed.

Socket preservation fills in the empty tooth socket with dental bone graft material after a tooth has been extracted or is lost. This helps slow the resorption process so that dental implants can be placed in the future.
