While a healthy smile is generally indicated by healthy teeth, many patients do not consider how the health of the jaw bone and gums can also affect your smile. Keep reading to learn all about the benefits of bone grafting in Maryland.
What is Bone Grafting?
Bone grafting is a common reconstructive procedure where the bone is manipulated to maintain the gum ridge found on either the roof of the mouth, or on the bottom of the mouth.
When is Bone Grafting Performed?
Bone grafting is most commonly performed for patients who have undergone a tooth extraction.
However, if you have been suffering from a missing tooth for a long period of time, bone grafting can replace the affected area through a bone graft in order to address the issue.
For patients suffering from periodontal disease or who have been missing teeth for an extensive period of time a large bone graft can be performed in order to prepare the area for implants or dentures.
The Benefits of Bone Grafting in Maryland
There are many benefits to rebuilding the jaw bone through bone grafting.
Bone grafting can help your appearance drastically and aid in correcting an unnatural bite.
Cavity prevention is also a result of bone grafting as well as the avoidance of periodontal disease.
Lastly, bone grafting is a permanent solution to missing teeth, and with the addition of a dental implant it eradicates any further discomfort for the future.
