Bone Grafting

At Dental Care of Greensboro, we need to ensure that you have the adequate bone strength to support a dental implant before completing the procedure. Numerous problems can cause the bone surrounding the supporting teeth to erode, including the following:

A successful bone graft allows you to generate new bone to provide support for your dental implants.

How a bone graft works

Your oral surgeon uses a scalpel to remove a small amount of bone from an area with more to spare. Next, he/she transfers the extracted bone to the intended implant area. You are under local anesthesia the entire time.

If your oral surgeon needs to remove and transfer a large amount of bone, he/she might need to cut your gum tissue wider to get a better look at the bone. This procedure is known as reflecting a full thickness periosteal flap.

Once you have healed from your bone graft, you’re ready to move on to receive your dental implants. Please contact Dental Care of Greensboro to schedule a consultation to find out if dental implants are right for you.
