Missing teeth can cause your jawbone to atrophy, resulting in a sunken appearance.
Bone grafting rebuilds the jaw density, allowing you to qualify for dental implant placement.
Learn how Dr. James M. Stein in Boston, MA, can help you restore your oral health with bone grafting.
What is Bone Grafting?
Bone grafting is a dental procedure that addresses bone loss in the jaw. A bone graft adds volume and density to strengthen the jawbone, which allows patients to qualify for dental implant surgery.
Jawbone atrophy can occur following tooth loss. The jawbone relies on the stimulation the tooth roots provide to remain healthy. When a patient loses a tooth, the bone no longer has that stimulation. Dental implants can stop the degenerative process, prevent further bone loss, and support restorations such as dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. However, implants require sufficient bone material to graft to. Bone grafting can provide this solid foundation.

How Bone Grafts Work
Benefits of Bone Grafts
Dental Implant Candidacy
Patients with jawbone atrophy often do not qualify for dental implants. The bone grafting procedure builds the jaw back up, providing sufficient tissue for dental implants to fuse to.
Because bone grafting helps patients qualify for implant placement, it can help restore their oral function. Dental implants paired with a custom restoration fill in the gap left by missing teeth so you can eat and speak confidently once more.
Restored Oral Health
Bone deterioration can put you at risk for further tooth loss, because teeth near the gaps in your smile are destabilized. Bone grafting paired with dental implants can repair the damage and prevent further bone loss, helping preserve your oral health for years to come.
