Losing sufficient amount of teeth and bone can allow for your appearance to look more aged, replacing teeth can become more complicated, and various facial features will commence to distort. When you have had past experiences with gum disease or tooth loss, the bone that used to surround them begins to melt away.
With modern bone grafting-techniques, during a prosperous minor surgical procedure, the bone that has been lost can be assembled again. This can benefit both your health and appearance by strengthening your jawbone.
Having a firm jawbone will allow the tooth replacement process to be smoother and will increase support to your facial features. Before adding the bone grafting material, a lesion is made in the gum to gain access to the bone beneath it.
Grafting material is made up of processed bone minerals, either from your own body, someone else’s body, or an animal donor, around which new bone cells will be accumulated by your body. A syringe is used to inject the powder, granules, putty or gel, which are all types of grafting material. The bone grafting process can be achieved using different techniques, allowing for every patient to have diverse experiences.
