Bone Grafting - Quincy, MA
Improve Dental Implant Candidacy
Patients with bone loss in the jaw may have been told they do not qualify for dental implants due to lack of proper support. Adequate bone levels are extremely important to the success of dental implants, which need healthy bone to hold them in place just like real teeth. Bone loss is caused by gum disease, trauma or chronic tooth loss, and can lead to bite misalignment, collapse of facial features and other oral concerns. If bone loss has affected your jaw, bone grafting may be recommended to establish the environment needed to support implants. Bone grafting rebuilds bone in the jaw to proper levels and can be your path to replacing missing or hopeless teeth with the lifetime benefits of dental implants.
As a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and Academy of Osseointegration member, our periodontist is uniquely equipped to rehabilitate your jaw with advanced bone grafting procedures. Bone grafting is performed by sourcing bone tissue samples from your own body or a safe, biocompatible donor source. We convert the bone into small granules and pack them within bone grafting sites. Over time, the new bone integrates with surrounding bone, forming a strong, solid foundation. Our periodontal team utilizes techniques like Guided Tissue Regeneration to encourage bone regrowth, and a biocompatible mesh to cover and protect bone grafting sites. These techniques help ensure treatment areas heal properly and enable the body to regrowth new bone without interference.
