At Nevada Dentistry & Braces in Las Vegas, we offer dental bone grafting to help you improve the structural health of your teeth and keep your options open for other smile enhancing procedures. Protect your existing teeth and save space for new ones with socket preservation through dental bone grafts.
What Is A Dental Bone Graft?
A dental bone graft is the addition of a material that promotes new bone to grow onto your existing bone structure. This material can be comprised of your own bone or a specialized natural or synthetic grafting material. The new, strong bone then forms in its place over time.
The Grafting Procedure
This procedure usually starts with a local anesthetic and small incision in the gum. After the grafting material is in place, all you have to do is let the incision heal and wait for your new bone to grow. You may experience a little bit of soreness for a couple of days afterward, but ice therapy and over the counter medications recommended by our dentists can help.
How This Procedure Can Help You
There are many reasons to look into bone grafting for better dental care results. Our dental practitioners can examine the current state of bone loss you are experiencing or plan this treatment to complement future tooth extraction or dental implants.
- Repair Damage Caused By Gum Disease
- Support Bone Structure After Tooth Extraction
- Strengthen & Support Bone For Dental Implants
- Keep Your Face From Looking Older Due To Bone Loss
- Preserves Tooth Alignment
Adding Strength & Saving Space
Gum disease, tooth loss, and tooth extractions can all cause the bone in your jaw to begin to break down. Now there is no support to keep surrounding teeth in place. Your face can also begin to look saggy or prematurely aged as this supportive bone is lost.
Socket Preservation After Tooth Extraction
Dental bone grafts are especially popular after tooth extractions. This form of socket preservation, in essence, keeps the bone in the now empty socket strong and supportive. Now, you can look forward to having support for a dental implant to replace the lost tooth or teeth.
