If you do not have teeth in a certain area of your jaw or your entire jaw, the supporting bone may have deteriorated (become smaller). In fact, when a tooth is extracted (pulled) the bone in that area may decrease by as much as 30% in the first year! When this occurs, you may no longer have enough bone to receive a dental implant. Dr. Klaudia Falkovsky and Dr. Andrew Falkovsky are able to perform a bone grafting procedure for you by adding bone-like minerals or bone from various sources. The procedure can rebuild or preserve the bone in your jaw.
Bone grafting ensures that you have enough bone to create a stable foundation for your teeth or dental implant so that you can once again enjoy the ability to chew better and have a healthy smile.
