Bone Grafts

Bone Grafts

Have you decided that dental implants are the right treatment option for you? If you have scheduled dental implant surgery with our Granville dental office, you may first need bone grafting to ensure the best results. Grafting can be useful for growing bone around a dental implant, ensuring stability and longevity.

Reasons for Bone Grafts

At Village Family Dentist in Granville, OH, in addition to dental implant preparation, bone grafting may be used to:

  • Restore bone loss due to trauma, tooth loss, or periodontal gum disease.
  • Maintain bone structure after the extraction of teeth.
  • Repair transplanted bone tissue issues.

Dental Implants & Bone Grafting

While bone grafting may not be necessary to place dental implants, in some cases patients require grafting to ensure a successful procedure. After your oral examination, we can discuss your condition and possible treatment options to ensure you make an informed decision. Bone grafting can help stabilize the surrounding tissue and keep it from collapsing; it also promotes tissue regeneration. After the grafting procedure, the body will accept the graft as natural bone, and over time the material will be replaced with new, natural bone.

Patients that neglect bone loss are more at risk for tooth loss, teeth misalignment, and even an aged appearance. At Village Family Dentist, we can use bone grafting to restore the appearance and functionality of your smile.
