Bone Grafting

Major and Minor Bone Grafting

Over a period of time, the jaw bone associated with missing teeth atrophies or is reabsorbed.  This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants.  In these situations, most patients are not candidates for placement of dental implants.  We now have the ability to grow bone where needed.  This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, but also gives us a chance to restore functionality.
