Bone Grafting

When a tooth is extracted, the bone where the tooth once was will resorb over a period of time. This may leave a situation where the bone is too narrow or insufficient to accept a dental implant.

Bone grafting procedures will allow for adequate bone height and width to accept dental implants. Using bone grafting procedures, Dr. Bloom can actually stimulate bone growth in areas where bone is insufficient.

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. The bone is generally obtained from outside sources but may sometimes also be taken from the patient’s own bone.

Once bone growth is stimulated and bone height and width are adequate, implant placement is possible.
