Just like any bone in your body, your jawbone is continually remodelling, and the body ensures your bone cells are renewed as they die off. However, it relies on the stimulation provided by your natural teeth to tell when to renew old bone cells. If you lose teeth or they become loose and your jawbone, your body no longer receives the signals, the bone around your teeth begins to resorb. It’s one reason why our implant dentist in Ajax strongly recommends restoring missing teeth sooner rather than later.
When you plan for dental implant surgery in Whitby soon after tooth loss or when teeth begin to fail, there’s a greater chance that the jawbone has enough volume to support the implants properly. If it has been quite a while since you lost teeth or suffered from severe periodontal disease, your jawbone volume may have diminished and there may not be enough left to support dental implants adequately. Bone grafting for dental implants in Pickering provides a good solution.
What is a Bone Graft?
A bone graft uses artificial bone material or bone taken from a donor, or you and restores bone in areas where it is deficient. We can use a bone graft to increase the volume of your jawbone, ensuring that when we place the dental implants in Oshawa, they have plenty of bone with which to bond. The bonding process is critical for successful implant treatment, as the implant won’t be able to move and is strong enough to support your replacement tooth.
When Would I Need a Bone Graft?
We can use a dental bone graft in Newcastle to increase the height or width of available jawbone. It is often used to preserve the bony socket around a tooth after removing a failing tooth. Bone grafting is also used when people need a sinus lift, which is often necessary before placing dental implants to restore upper back teeth. While bone grafts are commonly used to prepare the jawbone for implant placement, they can also help restore missing bone after oral trauma or if a person has severe periodontal disease and teeth are loose because of bone resorption.
Benefit from the Most Up-To-Date Technologies
Bone grafting may sound dramatic, but it is a routine procedure here at Durham Dental Solutions. Our experienced dentists use the latest bone grafting techniques and the most up-to-date technologies. During dental implant surgery, we may use a biomaterial called plasma rich fibrin. It contains growth factors that help to encourage a quicker healing process after implant surgery in Clarington. The plasma rich fibrin is extracted from your blood, so it is a very safe and effective way for our dental implant team to speed up healing.
If you need a bone graft in Brooklin, we frequently use an advanced form of ultrasonic technology called PIEZOSURGERY. This technology is a gentler way to cut through bone without harming gums and other soft tissues.
