In areas where the bone loss is extensive, a separate bone grafting or bone implant procedure may be necessary to regain the bone foundation.
We provide a large range of bone grafting services restoring single tooth sites to the entire mouth. Often, patients have been told by others that there is nothing that can be done for them. If you are wondering if you are a candidate, please contact us for an evaluation.
Bone implants or bone grafting consist of a host of procedures that allow us to rebuild the bony defects and regain a solid foundation to support the new tooth implant.
When a tooth is removed, the extraction socket may benefit from bone grafting regardless of whether a tooth implant is to be placed or not. It is, however, more important for the bone graft to be placed when a replacement tooth implant is inserted at the time of the tooth extraction.
For areas where the tooth has been lost for some time, the site may have already have experienced bone loss. In these cases, a different type of bone graft will be required to rebuild the lost tissue volume.
Bone graft material is considered a type of bone implant. They vary in size and shape. The bone graft material may come from human tissue, animal tissue as well as synthetic sources.
Regardless of the types of bone grafts, it should be appreciated that the bone-implant material that we use is strictly regulated. They have been highly sterilized and processed to be safe for human use according to safety guidelines prescribed by Health Canada.
It is possible to regain enough bone and transform from a severely atrophic or broken down mouth to one that can support multiple tooth implants and fixed crowns and bridges.
