Bone grafting services at Route 66 Smiles Family Dentistry offer numerous benefits for patients seeking dental restorations or dental implants. Here are some key advantages:

  1. Improved Implant Success: Bone grafting helps create a sturdy foundation for dental implants. By augmenting areas with insufficient bone, the grafting procedure enhances the stability and integration of the implants, increasing the chances of long-term implant success.
  2. Enhanced Aesthetics: Bone grafting allows for better aesthetic outcomes. It can restore lost bone volume, which is crucial for supporting natural-looking dental restorations. Grafting procedures help create a more harmonious facial structure and provide the necessary support for aesthetically pleasing results.
  3. Preserving Natural Teeth: Bone loss can occur after tooth extraction or due to periodontal disease. Bone grafting helps preserve the remaining natural teeth by maintaining the integrity of the jawbone. This prevents further bone resorption and the potential loss of adjacent teeth.
  4. Improved Oral Function: Bone grafting promotes a strong and healthy jawbone, which enhances oral function. The restored bone volume allows for better chewing and biting forces, ensuring optimal functionality when it comes to eating and speaking.
  5. Enhanced Comfort and Stability: With bone grafting, patients experience improved comfort and stability of dental restorations. The additional bone support provides a solid base for prosthetic teeth, reducing any discomfort or shifting that may occur with insufficient bone volume.
  6. Personalized Treatment Approach: At Route 66 Smiles Family Dentistry, the bone grafting procedures are tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient. The experienced dental professionals conduct a thorough evaluation and develop a customized treatment plan, ensuring that the bone grafting procedure is performed with precision and care.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Bone Grafting

Bone grafting creates a sturdy foundation for dental restorations or implants, enhancing their long-term success.

How long does the bone grafting process take?

The duration of the bone grafting process can vary depending on the individual case and the specific procedure performed.
