Missing teeth can cause your jawbone to shrink and weaken.
Fortunately, Dr. Mark Newey in Clearfield, UT, can perform bone grafting to replace lost tissue and restore candidacy for dental implants.
If you need dental implants to replace missing teeth, but have weakened jawbone tissue, learn how a bone graft by Dr. Newey can help...
What Can Bone Grafting Do?
Support Dental Implants
The implant procedure involves placing an artificial tooth root into your jaw that will support a dental restoration. This essentially allows you to replace the entire tooth from the root to the chewing surface. A bone graft can replace receded tissue to create a viable foundation for an implant.
Replace Unhealthy Bone Tissue
A graft can increase the amount of healthy bone tissue in areas that have been weakened by disease or injury. This can help with implant support and stop existing teeth from shifting out of place.
Reposition the Sinuses
Bone recession or the natural layout of your anatomy can place the sinus membranes too close to an implant placement site. A sinus lift is a process of adding a bone graft to the upper jaw to gently lift the sinus tissue and create room to safely accommodate an implant.
Whether you need a bone graft to support dental implants or restore the jaw following disease or injury, Dr. Newey can use state-of-the-art technology at his family-friendly Clearfield, UT, dental practice to make your surgery precise, safe, and effective.
