Periodontal disease can result in deep pockets and bone loss around the teeth. As a result, the bone can develop funnel-shaped defects that can be treated with bone grafts to stimulate bone regeneration and attachment.
Bone grafting can also be done to help with allowing implants to be put into place and is a procedure done in the office. It replaces the bone that has been lost from previous dental extractions, injuries, accidents, cysts, periodontal disease, infections along with many other causes. Dental implant bone grafting can restore the lost bone and allow you to have new completely functional teeth with dental implants.
