Bone Grafting

If you are seeking dental implants to replace any missing teeth, you may need a bone graft prior to the placement of your implants. Some patients who want dental implants may not have enough bone in the jaw to effectively support the implant posts. Luckily, our Periodontists and their experienced team are here to help you achieve a functional and beautiful smile with a preparatory bone grafting procedure.

What is Bone Grafting?

When a tooth falls out, the body naturally reabsorbs bone tissues, leading to further bone loss in the jaw. Patients that wear dentures or have had other dental restorations may have experienced bone loss, too. Bone grafts add bone tissue where it is needed in order to stabilize and strengthen areas that have deteriorated. 

During a bone grafting procedure, we take advantage of the body’s natural ability to produce bone. When new bone is placed next to existing bone, fusion begins, and these tissues conjoin and become a permanent part of the jaw. This advancement can help your jaw be able to support dental implants and give you a healthy, functional smile once again.

What types of bone grafting surgeries are there?

Depending on your specific needs, one of the following bone grafting procedures will be needed:

  • Ridge Preservation with Tooth Extraction 
  • Ridge Augmentation Bone Graft
  • Sinus Lift Bone Graft

Every patient is unique, and at Palm Beach Periodontics, we treat you as such. During your scheduled consultation, we will evaluate the current state of bone loss in your mouth and determine the proper treatment plan for your needs.

Patient Reviews

Palm Beach Periodontics is absolutely amazing! I would give 10 stars if possible. My daughter had an emergency and needed to see a periodontist immediately, I called the office around 11:30 and they got her in at 1:30 the same day! The ladies in the office were all absolutely amazing and accommodating.
