Bone Grafting - Haworth, NJ

Restoring Support to Your Jaw

Comprehensive Bone Grafting Services

Your jaw bone is what holds your teeth in place firmly, but when you have lost volume to your bone, teeth can become loose, fall out, and it can restrict the placement of dental implant replacement teeth. In order to save and bring health back to your smile, we offer effective bone grafting treatment that rebuilds lost bone tissue. Bone grafting in Haworth, NJ, is typically part of a treatment plan for those seeking dental implants. 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.

We often utilize these advanced bone grafting techniques to supplement dental implant procedures. 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 cause additional bone loss, leading to surrounding teeth shifting to fill the area. Socket preservation bone grafting is often used to fill the empty area and preserve the jaw and structure of your bite. Once the bone graft has healed, we will be able to replace the extracted tooth with a dental implant.

If you have received jaw damage and have lost jaw bone volume, or your removable dentures 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, acceptable 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. We offer sinus lift bone grafting treatments, which can gently raise the sinus membrane in order to add bone volume inside the sinus cavity. Sinus lifts are necessary if dental implants are to be successful in this area of the mouth.

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.
