One of the most important features of oral health is having adequate bone levels. It is the bone of your upper and lower jaws that ultimately keeps your teeth in place. Many factors can disturb the quality and quantity of bone, such as periodontal disease, osteoporosis, infection, and tooth loss. Bone grafting is a safe, effective procedure that can restore bone defects using natural bone mineral. The material is allowed to mineralize and integrate into the existing bone during healing. The newly built up bone will allow dental implants to be placed to restore lost teeth.
If you have concerns or issues involving periodontal disease, bone levels, or tooth loss, ask your dentist at Maple Dental Health about bone grafting.
