Bone Regeneration Procedures for Treating Bone Loss
Before undergoing a dental implant procedure, you must meet certain conditions. One of these conditions is having a healthy, strong, and sufficient jawbone. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, as many patients fail to meet this requirement due to bone loss. However, at Gwinnett Dental Implant & Periodontal Center, we offer bone regeneration procedures, which help to restore the lost or damaged bone tissue, thus making you a suitable candidate for Dental Implant placement.
Bone Regeneration for Treating Bone Loss
Bone regeneration is used to treat bone loss, which can be brought about by various factors such as tooth loss, an infection of the bone tissue, or damage to the jaw following an injury. The procedures are also used to prevent bone loss by preserving the bone structure.
During bone regeneration procedures, a bone grafting material is inserted in the area where there is bone loss (or where the new bone tissue is needed). The graft then starts regenerating new bone tissue, which merges with the existing tissue, thus increasing the volume of the jawbone.
The bone graft material used can come from some sources, which can include a piece of bone from your own body, a bone from a tissue bank (harvested from cadavers), an animal bone, or synthetic bone material.
