Bone Grafting: Why Go Through With It?

If you have experienced jawbone atrophy, then you’re missing some bone tissue. As a result, you might experience a variety of problems with your oral health and even your appearance. However, if you’ve just learned about this, you’re considering bone grafting, but you’re not sure about whether you plan on proceeding, you may be overlooking some important details. Namely, those details include why you should strongly consider going through with this procedure that can restore your jaw! Find out more.

To Maintain A Youthful Appearance

What you may not be thinking about just yet is the fact that the fullness of your jawbone (and the teeth it supports) actually provides further support: To your face! When your jaw shrinks and you lose teeth, your lower face no longer has the full volume that comes with a complete, healthy smile. As a result, your upper face no longer has the support of a full lower face. You see where we’re going. Maintain your youthful appearance by starting with bone grafting.

To Support Dental Implants

If your bone deterioration has anything to do with missing teeth, you may want to replace those teeth with dental implants. Did you know they will stimulate your jaw tissue to keep it healthy and fully replace missing teeth? You’ll need bone grafting first to repair damage, so your jaw can house implants successfully.

To Avoid Fractures And Further Tooth Loss

A damaged jaw is more likely to fracture and more likely to give way to additional tooth loss. By fixing the damage with bone grafting, you can side step such complications to protect your smile.
