Want to know more about bone grafting from your Lawrenceville, NJ, Periodontist.
Bone grafting is a procedure that helps patients grow bone to hold a dental implant. This treatment provides individuals otherwise incapable of getting implants, candidates for the procedure. Doctors can grow bone so it's the proper length and width, to ensure functionality and aesthetic appearance.
Bone is constantly remodeling itself. When someone loses a tooth, their jawbone shrinks. Your jawbone's adaptability is important because it allows your Lawrenceville Periodontist to position teeth properly in case braces are needed.
In the maxillofacial region, the facial region, your doctor bone grafts using the inside of the mouth, the chin, or third molar area, for example.
