Ways to Correct Bone Loss for Good

What Causes Bone Loss?

Bone Grafting

Dental bone loss is common. You could be experiencing bone loss because of any of the following:

  • Extractions
  • Severe periodontal disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Resorption

Just because dental bone loss is common does not mean it isn’t harmless. Bone loss can make your teeth appear longer, and it can cause your face to look “sunken in,” adding years to your appearance. Having low bone volume in your jaw makes replacing missing teeth with dental implants difficult. What can be done about it?

    Bone Grafting

    Dr. Stephen Futrell and Dr. Chad Scott Reese provide bone grafting services to correct bone loss and prepare your mouth to receive dental implants. Bone grafting gives dental implants adequate bone so they can fuse to the jaw, providing a firm foundation and enough bone for a successful implantation.

    Additional Bone Loss Procedures

    We may recommend a ridge augmentation to prepare your mouth to receive a dental implant. When a tooth is lost, the bone and gum tissue surrounding the socket will start to shrink. A ridge augmentation adds bone and/or gum tissue to the area to restore the natural contours of your jaw and gum line. We also use state-of-the-art platelet-rich plasma therapy, which contributes to tissue regeneration by promoting healing in our patients who have undergone procedures such as bone grafting, tooth extractions, dental implants, and gum surgery. When platelet-rich plasma is used in conjunction with bone grafting, your natural bone regenerate faster and harder.
