One of the biggest causes of bone loss in the mouth is periodontal disease. We use a holistic approach to bone grafting , as we do not use bone from cadavers, animals or the patient’s own harvested bone to help regenerate lost bone tissue and to help stimulate natural bone growth. We also use bone grafting to create stable bases after extractions of teeth to place implants or to stop the progression of gum disease. We can even use grafting to improve the look of your smile. Also, the jaw and other facial bones support the skin and muscle that are responsible for our outward cosmetic appearance. Without the support of the underlying bone, our faces can look prematurely aged.
We only use an FDA-approved synthetic bone for grafting, as opposed to cadaver or animal bone. We obtain this bone from a company that is one of the leaders in in bone graft technology: The Steiner Labs website contains detailed information about this procedure.
