Bone Grafts in Georgetown, Roundrock and Austin
Most dental bone grafting procedures are done to restore your bone to its previous form following tooth loss, gum disease or trauma. Bone grafting may also be used to maintain bone structure after tooth extraction (commonly referred as Socket Preservation).
Restoring and maintaining facial bone structure is important for several reasons. Many dental procedures, such as dental implant placement, require that the bone be as close to its original dimension and position as possible for optimal results. Also, the jaw and other facial bones support the skin and muscle that are responsible for our outward cosmetic appearance. Without the support of the underlying bone, our faces can look prematurely aged.
Here at Westinghouse Dental, our doctors are trained to provide such surgical procedures to preserve your bone so it can be later on use for Dental implants or to prevent other complications. Contact us today to discuss more.
