Your bones constantly remodel themselves throughout your life, but certain factors can cause resorption (bone destruction) to happen at a higher rate than it can be replaced. Your jawbone is most likely to experience this. Bone regeneration at Danowit Dental can restore what’s been lost and keep you smiling with confidence.
Why Do People Need Bone Regeneration?
When people get advanced stages of gum disease or osteoporosis, it can cause the jawbone to degenerate. When this happens, you’re put at a higher risk of fractures and breakage. When you don’t have enough bone to support your teeth, they can also fall out. Other causes of jawbone loss can include a traumatic injury to the mouth or an oral infection.
What to Expect
Bone regeneration surgery is a pretty straightforward procedure. It’s performed under anesthesia, as we will be creating an incision on the gum where the bone loss has occurred. If needed, we will remove the damaged bone and thoroughly clean the area if there is an infection. Finally, we’ll place the grafting material and stitch the gums back together.
Benefits of Bone Regeneration
Bone regeneration can provide many advantages to patients experiencing jawbone loss. It’s commonly performed for patients who are getting dental implants and don’t have sufficient bone to support them. Below are some of the other benefits patients can experience after bone regeneration at Danowit Dental.
