If you have periodontal (gum) disease or if you've been missing a tooth for some time, you may have lost some of the bone in the area. Dr. Blackmon, our skilled and experienced prosthodontist, may recommend a bone graft to rebuild the lost bone tissue and encourage natural bone growth. The procedure will enhance your oral health and allow you to enjoy the many benefits of dental implants!

Why Choose a Specialist for a Bone Graft?

Prosthodontists are the premier tooth restoration experts. After dental school, they undergo at least three years of specialized training to learn the intricacies of replacing or restoring lost or deficient teeth. Prosthodontists are highly skilled and experienced in utilizing state-of-the-art technology and techniques to restore a tooth's optimum function and esthetics.

Why Would You Need a Bone Graft?

Choosing to restore one or more missing teeth with dental implants is one of the best decisions you'll ever make for your smile. However, bone loss due to the natural aging process, untreated periodontal disease, trauma to the jaw, genetic or developmental defects, or missing teeth for some time can interfere with the success of the implant procedure. With a bone graft, you'll be eligible for a dental implant and can enjoy a healthy, functional smile once again!

Aside from implant eligibility, bone grafting serves several purposes. For example, we may recommend a bone graft to support and save a tooth at risk of loss due to advanced periodontal disease, a condition known as periodontitis. The procedure helps provide bone support to keep the tooth in place. Bone grafts are also performed at times right after tooth extraction to maintain healthy bone mass and allow for the success of future restoration using dental implants.

What Is the Bone Grafting Procedure?

The first step in restoring your smile is a consultation with Dr. Blackmon. He will evaluate your condition and, depending on your unique needs, may recommend a bone graft.

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure Dr. Blackmon performs under local, nitrous, or moderate sedation. It involves placing donor or synthetic bone in the treatment area to replace missing bone and trigger new bone generation. Once the healing process is complete, you'll be ready for dental implant placement.
