Here, learn more about this unique service.
Who Needs Bone Grafting?
There are lots of people who could find themselves in need of this service, including patients who have:
- Been missing teeth for extended periods, leading to atrophy.
- Experienced a traumatic injury that led to atrophy.
- Undergone oral surgery such as tumor removal, which caused bone loss.
- Been born with congenital defects that created a shortage of bone tissue.
In all of these instances, bone grafting can help restore or create the bone tissue necessary for a strong and healthy smile.
How Does It Work?
There are a few different options for bone grafting in Orlando, FL. When you visit our office, our team will identify which one would best suit your needs.
We’ll insert special membranes under the patient’s gums that encourage bone regeneration and protect bone grafts. This procedure is a great option for patients who have the ability to regenerate their own bone. For those who can’t, major bone grafting could be a better option.
Major Bone Grafting
This procedure involves taking bone from elsewhere (the patient’s own body, a donor, or synthetic bone material) and grafting it to the place in the jaw where the bone is weak. Once it’s healed, this bone forms a solid foundation for dental implants.
Sinus Lift Grafts in Orlando, FL
This technique is used specifically for patients who are missing their upper back teeth and whose bone has atrophied in that spot. We’ll perform a bone graft on the sinus floor using the same strategy applied in a major bone graft.
