Bone Grafts

A dental implant replaces the root of a natural tooth and therefore needs a certain level of bone to support the implant.

Why Would I Need A Bone Graft?

There are numerous clinical reasons why the bone surrounding the supporting teeth may have eroded over time, including the following:

  • Bone defects or infection
  • Acid erosion
  • Cracked teeth
  • Extensive cavities
  • Bone is too thin or short to support implants
  • Untreated periodontal disease
  • Missing teeth
  • Other medical conditions
  • Poorly-fitting dentures
  • Bone density weakness

At Rachelle T. Flores, DMD, we can identify if you have adequate bone strength to support a dental implant before completing the procedure. If not, we will use bone grafting to supplement your current bone level. A successful bone graft allows you to generate new bone to provide support for your dental implants.
