Board-Certified Oral Surgeons
Missing teeth over a period of time will cause your jawbone to atrophy or shrink in size. This loss of bone starts immediately after the extraction of a tooth and can be quite significant in as little as six months after loss of a tooth. Once this shrinkage occurs, the results are poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for the placement of dental implants as well as long-term shifting of remaining teeth and changes to facial structure.
Fortunately, today we have the ability to grow bone where it is needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, but it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.
Dr. Humble and Dr. Russell can determine when bone grafting may be the best choice for you.
