Bone Grafts in Van Wert

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure commonly used in dentistry to restore or augment bone in the jaw. It is often necessary when there is insufficient bone volume to support dental implants or other restorative treatments.

Bone loss in the jaw can occur due to factors such as

  • periodontal disease
  • tooth loss
  • trauma
  • developmental abnormalities

During a bone grafting procedure, bone graft material, which can be sourced from the patient's own body, a donor, or synthetic materials, is placed into the deficient area of the jaw. This graft material serves as a scaffold for new bone growth, stimulating the body's natural healing process.

Over time, the graft material integrates with the surrounding bone, creating a stronger and more stable foundation for dental implants or other restorations.

The success of a bone grafting procedure depends on various factors, including the patient's overall health, the quality of the bone graft material, and proper post-operative care.

Dr. Laing will carefully evaluate each case to determine the most appropriate type of bone graft and surgical approach to achieve optimal results and restore both function and aesthetics to your smile.
