Dental Bone Grafting

INCLINE FAMILY DENTISTRY

Missing teeth that are not replaced are the leading cause of jaw bone loss. It may seem odd that teeth impact the jaw bone so significantly; however, it is the pressure and stimulation that the jaw bone receives during chewing and biting that maintains the alveolar bone’s integrity. When tooth loss occurs, bone deterioration begins at the site of the missing tooth. Acting as soon as possible to replace missing teeth is critical in preserving the jaw bone.

Other factors that cause jaw bone loss are:

  • Misaligned teeth that prohibit proper chewing
  • Periodontal disease
  • Infection in the jaw bone
  • Unanchored dentures

Regardless of the reason for jaw bone loss, the lack of strong jaw bone results in serious issues such as:

  • Teeth that remain can become loose or fall out
  • Jaw and facial pain
  • Sinus problems
  • Collapsed appearance in the face
  • Excessive wrinkles around the mouth and jaws

Fortunately, dental jaw bone grafting treatment is available to restore the jaw bone.

Restoring Jaw Bone with Dental Bone Grafting

In the case of missing teeth, bone grafting makes it possible for dental implants to be installed so that no further bone loss occurs. Bone grafting also helps stimulate the natural bone to regrow, which leads to restoration of the jaw bone and reversal of some of the negative issues caused by bone loss.

The procedure is safe, minimally invasive, and performed in our office by Dr. Travis Barr.
