Bone Grafting - Aiken, SC
Restore Healthy Bone for Dental Implants
Why You May Need Bone Grafting
Your jawbone is the main support for your teeth, and along with healthy gums, secures your teeth in your mouth so you can eat and speak confidently. If problems like gum disease or tooth loss cause this support to weaken and shrink, it can affect your dental function and your facial appearance. Our dentists have years of experience in restorative treatments like bone grafting in Aiken, SC. We can restore a healthy foundation for new teeth like dental implants with minimally-invasive and safe procedures. If you need bone grafting because your jaw is too weak or thin to support dental implants, our skilled Aiken, SC dentists can help! You can have a stable, beautiful smile with dental implants—and it starts with a healthy jawbone.

Our Specialized Services
Tooth and bone loss that occurs in an entire jaw ridge will leave the bone too weak and narrow to support a dental implant bridge. We’ll rebuild the natural contours of this ridge and the density of the bone. Ridge augmentation also refers to placing bone grafting material in the tooth socket after a tooth extraction to preserve the bone.
Bone loss that occurs when a molar is lost in the upper arch (under the sinus cavity) won’t leave enough room to support a dental implant. We’ll first lift the sinus membrane up so that we can place bone grafting material beneath. This will simultaneously keep the sinus cavity in its proper location and restore proper height to the bone beneath.
Gum tissue and bone don’t heal at the same speed and the gums can sometimes interfere with the proper recovery of bone after grafting treatment. We’ll optimize the treatment site for healthy healing by placing a barrier membrane between these two tissues.
