This includes using methods such as bone grafting to ensure our patients receive the natural and long-lasting results they desire. Feel free to listen to our patients who have shared their bone grafting experiences.
Dental implants do not only serve as realistic and functional replacement teeth in the mouth, but they also stabilize and help preserve the health of the jaw bone just like natural teeth. Dental implants require strong, healthy jaw bone in order to be placed. If the jaw bone has suffered from atrophy or other causes that have resulted in a thin or soft jaw bone, a bone graft can provide an efficient and effective solution.
In a bone graft procedure, your oral surgeon will use a special bone grafting material and place it into the space where more bone is desired. Typically, it takes a few months for the graft to stabilize and create new, strong bone. Then, you are ready to receive a successful dental implant to a strong, stabilized, and healthy jaw that can healthily support it.
To ensure our patients are treated with exceptional and individualized care, we offer a variety of bone grafting procedures to suit your oral health needs, such as:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a naturally occurring growth factor that is present in your own blood. These factors aid in the body’s ability to heal. PRP has been used in hospital environments for decades and is not able to be utilized in dentistry. Our doctors can extract as little as 55 cc of your blood, extract the PRP, and administer it directly to your surgical site to expedite the healing process.
Similarly, bone morphogenic protein (BMP) is a growth factor present in bone. Your doctor can collect a small sample of BMP and administer it where new bone is needed. This encourages new bone to form and can be greatly beneficial in bone grafting procedures.
Utilizing PRP also has many advantages, such as
