Bone Grafting - Haworth, NJ

Restore Function, health and Support to Your Jaw

Comprehensive Bone Grafting Services

Your jaw bone is what holds your teeth in place. When your bone begins to degrade and recede, teeth can become loose and fall out, your facial structure can change, giving you an aged appearance and you can lose complete oral function. If you have missing teeth, jaw bone loss can also restrict the placement of dental implant replacement teeth. In order to save and bring proper health back to your smile, we offer effective bone grafting treatment that rebuilds lost bone tissue. Since bone grafting in Haworth, NJ, is frequently part of a treatment plan for those seeking dental implants, we have years of experience successfully offering this service to our patients. Depending on your needs, we offer bone grafting treatments tailored to you and can perform the procedure in-house to get you ready for the next step of your treatment plan.

Gentle Dentistry prides itself as being an all-inclusive location for those needing comprehensive dental care. This means that patients won’t have to seek care from other dental offices and can see the same talented team of doctors from start to finish for their appointments. This often saves on time and money as well as helps patients reach their smile goals sooner.

Conditions That Require Bone Grafting

When you have a tooth extracted, the tooth roots leave behind an empty socket within the jaw bone. Without bone grafting treatment, this socket can break down, leading to surrounding teeth shifting to fill the area. Socket preservation is a bone grafting technique used to fill the empty area and preserve the structure of your jaw and smile. Once the bone graft has healed, we will be able to replace the extracted tooth with a dental implant.

If tooth loss is left untreated, the lack of stimulation normally provided by tooth roots will result in jaw bone loss. If you have bone loss caused by untreated tooth loss or if you have removable dentures that have worn away at your jaw bone, we can restore you to proper bone levels with ridge augmentation. This form of bone grafting places bone material at areas where loss has occurred. Once healed, the ridge of the jaw will be restored to an even, healthy and functional level.

If you have had upper molars extracted or lost, replacing them is more challenging due to the sinus cavity that resides just above them. In many cases, if this bone recedes, the sinus cavity will expand and fill this area. We offer sinus lift bone grafting treatments, which can gently raise the sinus membrane in order to add bone volume beneath the sinus cavity. 

In order for a dental implant to be successful, you must have the proper bone volume to support the implant post. By restoring your jaw bone volume, the bone will fuse with the implant to give it a solid hold, much like how natural teeth are held in place.
