Bone Grafting

Dental implantsDental implants are an excellent and often life-changing dental treatment for patients who need to replace missing teeth. However, an ideal candidate for dental implants must meet certain criteria. Beyond good overall health and optimal periodontal health, patients much also have an adequate amount of jawbone structure. Since the implant is surgically inserted into the jawbone to act as an artificial tooth root, its success relies heavily on the health of the surrounding bone. If there is not enough density and height in the underlying bone, a bone grafting procedure may be recommended prior to dental implant surgery. At ConfiDenT, we are proud of our ability to provide full-service implant dentistry. This means that we not only place all types of dental implants and maintain them, but we can also perform special pre-qualifying procedures such as bone grafting.

What is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is used to rebuild the necessary bone to support a dental implant. At ConfiDenT, we take the time to carefully explain each step of the process so that you understand what to expect in terms of the procedure itself and healing time and recovery. If you want dental implants but have been told you have inadequate bone structure, bone grafting can help you qualify.

Bone grafting is a straightforward and effective procedure that involves the replacement or augmentation of the missing bone around the teeth. Bone grafting can be done using an autogenous graft (a patient’s own bone), an allograft (cadaver bone) or xenograft (non-human bone source). Based on your clinical needs and preferences, our dentists will determine the type of graft that is best for you. At ConfiDenT, we perform bone grafting with the highest level of precision and care. Our modern office is equipped with a highly skilled team of implant dentists as well as cutting-edge imaging and technology.

Reasons for Bone Grafting

Like other bones in the body, the jawbone maintains its structure and form through everyday use. The natural stimulation and pressure that the jawbone receives when you chew helps it to retain its density. However, when a tooth goes missing, there is no tooth root to stimulate the underlying bone. This causes the jawbone to atrophy or reabsorb into the body if the tooth is not replaced with a dental implant in a timely manner. This is a leading reason why patients have bone loss and need bone grafting before getting dental implants. The jawbone can also deteriorate or become damaged due to severe gum disease or traumatic injury. Patients can even experience a degree of bone loss while wearing traditional dentures.

At ConfiDenT, we can restore your bone health and help you take advantage of the life-changing benefits of dental implants. Contact our Alpharetta office today to schedule your consultation. We look forward to rebuilding your smile the way you deserve.

The office staff are very friendly and helpful. Dr. George Dinulescu explained the process from cleanings, to root canals, to braces very clearly. Appointment's are set up very easily. This has been the best dental experience I have ever had. Prices are also very reasonable.
