Bone Grafting - Falmouth, MA
Bone Grafting Procedures Improve Implant Success
Increase Your Candidacy for Implants with Solid Bone Support
Bone loss is a common concern for many patients, and often a barrier for replacing missing teeth with dental implants. The condition may result from gum disease, chronic tooth loss or trauma. Losing bone in the jaw impacts your oral function and facial appearance, and may be a catalyst for problems like a collapsed bite, shifting of teeth and other concerns. At Advanced Dental Care of Falmouth, our team performs effective bone grafting procedures to rehabilitate the jaw and enable successful implant placement. With our cutting-edge bone grafting techniques, we can replace and regrow lost bone tissue to adequate height and volume. If bone loss is affecting your ability to replace missing teeth, bone grafting can help you qualify for dental implants.
A Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and esteemed Academy of Osseointegration member, our periodontist is highly skilled at reversing bone loss through advanced bone grafting techniques. We perform bone grafting by sourcing bone tissue samples from your body (often the chin) or a safe, fully vetted bone bank. These bone samples are then reduced to small granules and placed within bone loss sites. Over time, the bone granules fuse with existing bone tissue, restoring the area to a sufficient height and volume. Our doctors are focused on delivering exceptional treatment results, and use Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) techniques and biocompatible mesh in bone grafting treatment. These combined techniques speed the recovery process and protect bone grafting sites while healing occurs.
Ridge Augmentation and Bone Preservation Bone Grafting Techniques
The most common bone grafting procedure performed, ridge augmentation restores areas of bone loss on the upper and lower arches. We begin the procedure by numbing treatment sites and can administer oral sedation if anxiety is a concern. Our periodontist then adds bone grafting samples to replenish lost tissue and create a foundation strong enough to support dental implants. This bone grafting procedure reverses indentations left in the jaw and gums by bone loss, restoring form and function to the arch. Ridge preservation is a bone grafting technique used to preserve a recent extraction site for a dental implant. We add bone tissue directly to the tooth sockets left in the bone by tooth roots. The new bone fuses with surrounding bone over time, creating a solid foundation for future implant support.
