One of the most common side effects of severe tooth or gum disease is the loss of bone tissue in your jaw. Not only can this cause complications for your overall health and the functionality of your smile, but it can also make restoration efforts more difficult. This is especially true when considering dental implants. Dental implants utilize metal posts implanted into your jawbone to act as a new tooth root; without a strong jawbone, we may not be able to offer dental implants as a choice of tooth restoration. To remedy this situation and help you restore both the health and appearance of your smile, we offer bone grafting.
A bone graft in Shelby Township is the process by which Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver, our knowledgeable dentist, adds natural or synthetic bone tissue to your shrinking bone tissue to strengthen it and promote growth. A surgical treatment, bone grafting acts as a long-lasting solution to bone loss. If you would like more information on bone grafting, how it is completed, and what it can do for the future of your smile, please do not hesitate to call our friendly dental team at Great Lakes Dentistry in Shelby Township, MI today. Our goal is to help educate you about all of your treatment options so you can feel more confident in your dental healthcare decisions. We look forward to working with you!
