Bone Grafting

Bone Grafting

Bone Graft Danville | Dental Implant SurgeonBone grafting is a procedure that helps to rebuild and strengthen the jawbone, making it possible for patients with insufficient bone structure to receive successful dental implants.

Your jawbone plays a vital role in maintaining your smile and overall oral wellness. When somebody thinks of oral health, bone loss in the jaw typically does not come to mind. However, bone loss can occur due to periodontal or gum disease. Other times, bone loss can happen as a result of oral injury. Regardless of the cause, a bone graft might be required to rebuild areas of the jaw that have deteriorated. At Diablo Valley Implant Dentistry, Dr. Anthony Lizano, a board certified dental implant surgeon, performs bone grafting for patients throughout the East Bay and Bay Area of San Francisco.

Reasons For Bone Grafting

There are various reasons why bone grafting can be the most suitable option for restoring the jaw bone. Our oral surgeon in Danville, Dr. Anthony Lizano, will use a bone graft if someone has lost one or more adult teeth, has gum disease, or has insufficient bone mass to support dental implants. Both of these conditions may lead to bone loss in the jaw.

Dental implants

Implants are the most preferred replacement option for individuals who are missing teeth. They are the most preferred treatment because implants restore full functionality to the mouth. Still, dental implants must be firmly anchored to the jawbone to be completely effective. If the jaw lacks the necessary quality or quantity of bone, your dental implant surgeon may use bone grafting to strengthen and thicken the implant site.

Sinus lift

A sinus lift procedure raises the sinus membrane followed by grafting bone onto the sinus floor so our advanced trained dental implant surgeon, Dr. Anthony Lizano, can securely place the dental implants.

Ridge augmentation

Ridges in the jawbone can occur due to injury, trauma, birth defects, or severe periodontal disease. Our dental implant surgeon will use a bone graft to fill the ridge and make the jawbone uniform.

Candidates For Bone Grafting

Good candidates for bone grafting surgery in Danville and throughout the East Bay and Bay Area are individuals who have lost bone structure along the jawbone that anchors their teeth. This bone loss could be because of missing teeth or other dental matters, including severe gum disease, trauma to the mouth, for instance, a blow to the jaw or face, or tumor removal. The patient should be in good overall health to avoid potential health risks.

Also, oral surgeons and dental implant experts may use a bone graft to re-establish enough bone density to support dental implants. If you are considering dental implants, our implant surgeon, Dr. Anthony Lizano, will see if your jaw has adequate tissue to withstand chewing and other functions. At Diablo Valley Implant Dentistry, our implant surgeons typically use bone grafts for patients who have had missing teeth for some time and whose bones have deteriorated below the minimum amount of healthy bone mass.
