At Nosov Cosmetic Dentistry, we proudly offer dental bone graft to Nassau County. Dental bone grafting allows patients to regrow missing jawbone that may be absent due to a variety of reasons, including missing teeth, infection, disease, and injury. Once a tooth is lost, it is crucial to fill in the missing tooth socket, as surrounding teeth may misalign, collapse inward, and lose jawbone density. All of these factors may result in setbacks when it comes to further cosmetic treatments that require a strong jaw, such as braces, dental implants, and dental bridges. Luckily, advances in dentistry have allowed us to provide patients with a solution to lost bone density in the mouth. When jawbone weakens, a dental bone graft will strengthen the mouth, allowing further cosmetic procedures to take place that patients may otherwise not have been a candidate.

What is a dental bone graft?

A dental bone graft is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone in the jaw with bone from alternative areas of the body, including the hip or alternative parts of the mouth. In some circumstances, artificial cadaver bone or synthetic bone may be substituted for your bone graft. Often times, dental bone grafting is used in conjunction with Bone Morphogenic Protein, helping to stimulate bone regeneration and speeding up natural bone growth. BMP essentially a chemical placed on a collagen carrier and placed within the missing tooth socket. Understanding how the two work together, and separately, will better assist you when opting for your dental bone graft.

How does a dental bone graft work?

Regeneration from a dental done graft strengthens the grafted area by forming a bridge between your existing bone and the graft material. Over time, your own newly formed bone will replace much of the grafted material. This gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, effectively restoring esthetic appearance and functionality.

Why should I consider a dental bone graft?

When a patient experiences several missing teeth, jawbone density weakens and losses density. This often leads to poor quality and concentration of bone suitable for effective anchorage of dental implants. With the dental bone graft in Nassau, however, patients can qualify for procedures their jaw might otherwise not have the strength to support, expanding the options available to restore your smile.
