A bone graft is necessary to restore the foundation of the dental arch where the bone is too sparse. During a bone grafting procedure, an oral surgeon can place a bone graft material to restore the size and shape of the jaw. Over time, the bone graft material integrates with the existing bone, which restores the facial structure and creates a secure foundation to place dental implants. A bone graft is a versatile treatment option and can restore a single tooth socket, a large area of bone where multiple teeth are missing, or even increase the size of the bone between the mouth and the sinus cavities. Depending on your needs, the bone grafting material used can be from your body or a tissue bank. Once the bone grafting material has integrated with existing bone, the jaw bone is ready for dental implant placement.
Sometimes the only way to prevent further oral problems is by removing the affected tooth or teeth. Severe dental decay, gum disease, facial injuries, or other conditions that can cause damage are common reasons for tooth extraction, which is a common procedure in our office at Fresno Oral Maxillofacial Surgery & Dental Implant Center. Tooth extractions by a skilled oral surgeon allow the problem teeth to be removed and eliminate any signs of infection.
