Bone Grafting

If you have lost teeth, you may need a bone grafting treatment before you can receive implants. Our skilled dentist can provide bone grafting to ensure that your supporting bone is strong enough to support your teeth and implants and help you maintain a healthy smile. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Steven Airey and learn more about bone grafting in Boone, North Carolina, call Appalachian Dental Care today at 828-264-9938.

A bone graft is an oral surgery procedure that may be required if your jawbone is not dense or thick enough. During a bone graft, we will transplant a piece of bone to your jawbone. At our dental office we have a certified center screen bone material taken from a cadaver to give you the best treatment result possible. After the bone is transplanted we apply platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) to help you heal more quickly and comfortably following your procedure. Your jawbone then grows together with the grafted bone tissue, creating a stronger, more stable foundation.

You may need a bone graft if your bone density is insufficient to support a dental implant or other types of treatment. After a tooth is lost or extracted, the jawbone begins to resorb, or deteriorate, at the site of the tooth extraction. The resorption must be corrected before the dental implant is placed. While bone grafts are most commonly needed for implant dentistry, they may also be required for certain types of periodontal therapy when bone has been lost due to gum disease.

To learn more about bone grafting and to discover whether dental implants and bone grafting are right for your smile, we invite you to call or visit us today. Our dentist and team are eager to care for your smile!
