Why You Need Bone Grafting
Having adequate bone volume within your jaw is important for many health and aesthetic reasons. When bone loss has occurred, your jaw will thin, causing a changing facial appearance, loose teeth, tooth loss, and even prevent dental implants from being placed. Jaw bone loss can occur for a variety of reasons, including missing teeth, facial trauma , or gum disease. In order to treat jaw bone loss we offer effective bone grafting treatment to rebuild your jaw and help save your oral health. At Midwest Oral Surgery & Dental Implants we can perform bone grafting treatment on even the most difficult of cases so that patients can enjoy the quality of life they deserve.
Bone Grafting Treatments
After a tooth has been extracted, we can immediately preserve the jaw bone by packing the socket with bone grafting material. This ensures the jaw stays healthy and qualifies you for dental implants in the future.
Onlay Bone Graft
When bone loss has affected your jaw, certain areas will have less volume than others. With onlay bone grafting treatment, we can take bone material from your own body and add it to areas of the jaw that are lacking to bring the bone to proper volume.
An advanced bone grafting treatment, a sinus lift is used to add bone material to the area above the upper molars. A sinus lift is best performed by oral surgeon experts because of the difficultly and sensitivity of lifting the sinus cavity to place bone grafting material.
Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMP)
Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) is used during bone grafting procedures to regenerate new bone growth in the jaw bone. BMP helps accelerate healing of the bone for the future placement of dental implants.
Plasma Rich Growth Factors (PRGF)
Plasma Rich Growth Factors (PRGF) are found the patient’s own blood and are used during surgery. PRGF is added to the treatment site to accelerate healing and regenerate tissue and bone.
Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques
Our full scope oral and maxillofacial practice features some of the latest techniques and technology when performing bone grafting care. For many cases of bone grafting, we use guided tissue regeneration, which protects the bone material and holds it in place during the healing process. Additionally, we offer bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP) which act similar to stem cells by taking your own DNA and adding it to areas of bone loss. Over time, your bone in this area will regrow to proper healthy levels.
