Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement. They have the ability to provide the most natural function, feel and appearance compared to conventional alternatives. However, successful dental implants require that patients have adequate bone to support the implant. Although jawbone loss can occur from injury or gum disease, it is common for patients to experience bone atrophy from a previous tooth extraction or tooth loss. Without proper jawbone stimulation from a tooth root, the surrounding bone can reabsorb, diminishing in quantity and quality. For such cases, oral surgeries such as bone grafting and socket grafting can be used to restore bone structure and help patients regain their candidacy for dental implants.

Bone Grafting

Today, modern dentists have the capability to regenerate and grow new bone through grafting procedures. Bone grafting is an ideal solution for patients that do not have enough jawbone to support a healthy dental implant. Bone grafting can involve a variety of graft material, including autogenous bone (a patient’s own bone), cadaver bone from a donor bank, bovine bone or synthetic bone. Our implant dentist will determine your graft material based on the location of your bone graft as well as the severity of your bone loss. In most cases, bone grafting is a minor procedure that can be done under local anesthesia. Bone grafting is an invaluable opportunity that allows patients to receive the most secure and longest-lasting tooth replacement option available.

Socket Grafting

For patients who are planning to get a dental implant and who need to have a tooth extracted, socket grafting is ideal. Socket grafting involves the immediate placement of a bone graft into the empty socket at the time of extraction. This not only works to maintain the natural contours of the jaw, but it also helps to preserve the maximum amount of bone volume so that the dental implant surgery is more predictable and successful. Bone remodeling after a tooth is removed can involve a 25% reduction in bone volume after the first year and up to a 60% decrease in bone width after 3 years. This risk can be eliminated when a socket preservation graft is performed.
During socket and bone grafting surgery, Gastonia Family Dentistry proudly uses the most sophisticated technology available. We use advanced 3D imaging equipment to ensure your oral surgery is precise and minimally invasive.
