If you have experienced tooth or bone loss, our periodontist may perform a bone grafting procedure prior to placing a dental implant or performing another treatment. When you lose a tooth, the supporting jawbone in that area begins to resorb, or deteriorate and shrink, at the site of the missing tooth. This causes your remaining teeth to become unstable and shift out of place. This bone loss may also occur due to periodontal disease or other factors.
Dr. Eli Janabi provides bone grafting to ensure that your teeth have a stable foundation. During a bone graft, he will transplant a piece of bone from another area of your jaw or body into the site of the missing jawbone. This transplanted bone will then grow together with the grafted bone tissue to create a stronger and more stable foundation for your implant. While the best results for this treatment are produced while using your own bone tissue, we can also utilize artificial bone material or donated bone fragments from a tissue bank if needed.
