Advanced Bone Grafting Services at Ballantyne Family Dental

Bone grafting is a pivotal surgical procedure designed to rebuild and enhance bone structure within the jaw, ensuring a solid foundation for future dental work and restoring the natural contour of your face. At Ballantyne Family Dental, we specialize in providing state-of-the-art bone grafting services to address bone loss resulting from periodontal disease, tooth extraction, trauma, or other factors.

The Importance of Bone Grafting

Preparing for Dental Implants

One primary reason patients undergo bone grafting is to prepare the jaw for dental implants. Adequate bone density is crucial for the successful integration and stabilization of the implant. Without sufficient bone structure, implants may fail, compromising the longevity and effectiveness of the treatment.

Enhancing Fit and Comfort of Dentures and Restorations

Bone grafting can also significantly improve the fit and comfort of dentures and other dental restorations. By restoring the jaw's original contour, we can ensure that restorations sit more naturally and securely, enhancing overall function and aesthetics.

Are You a Candidate for Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting can benefit a wide range of patients, regardless of age. Ideal candidates include those experiencing bone loss in the jaw area, which may complicate or prevent specific dental procedures. Through a comprehensive examination and X-rays, our team at Ballantyne Family Dental can determine if bone grafting is the right choice for you, ensuring the best possible outcome for your oral health.

What to Expect During the Bone Grafting Procedure

Procedure Overview

The bone grafting procedure begins with the administration of a local or general anesthetic, prioritizing your comfort throughout the process. We then gently make an incision in the gum tissue to access the area of bone loss. Specialized bone grafting material is placed in these areas to promote new bone growth, sometimes supplemented with bone growth factors to encourage the integration and bonding of the new bone with your existing bone structure. Finally, the site is carefully sutured, and comprehensive aftercare instructions are provided to ensure a smooth recovery.
