Bone grafting is a specialized procedure offered by Dr. Mayur Patel, aimed at restoring and enhancing the bone structure in the jaw. This critical treatment is often necessary for patients who have experienced bone loss due to periodontal disease, tooth loss or other oral health issues. Bone grafting provides a solid foundation for dental implants and supports overall oral health.

Benefits of Bone Grafting
There are several significant benefits of undergoing bone grafting, including:

  • Enhanced Stability for Implants: Bone grafting creates a strong, stable foundation for the placement of dental implants.
  • Improved Oral Function: Restoring bone structure helps improve the functionality of the jaw, making it easier to chew and speak.
  • Preservation of Facial Structure: Bone grafting helps maintain the natural contours of the face, preventing the sunken appearance often associated with bone loss.
  • Promotion of Bone Growth: The procedure stimulates the body’s natural bone growth processes, promoting long-term oral health.

Types of Bone Grafting Procedures
At DC Family Dental, we offer various bone grafting techniques tailored to meet your specific needs:

  • Socket Preservation: Grafting material is placed in the socket of a recently extracted tooth to prevent bone loss.
  • Ridge Augmentation: This procedure increases the width and height of the jawbone to support dental implants.
  • Sinus Lift: Bone is added below the sinus cavity to provide adequate support for implants in the upper jaw.
  • Allografts and Autografts: Use of donor bone or the patient’s bone to ensure the best possible integration and results.
