Bone Grafting in Palm City, FL

At Bessey Creek Dental Care, we have to ensure that you have adequate bone quantity/quality to support a dental implant before moving forward with the procedure. Numerous problems can cause the bone surrounding the supporting teeth to erode, including the following:

  • Bone defects or infection
  • Cracked teeth
  • Extensive decay
  • Untreated periodontal disease
  • Missing teeth
  • Other medical conditions like Diabetes
  • Poorly-fitting dentures
  • Bone density issues

A successful bone graft allows you to generate new bone and maintain the existing bone to provide a solid foundation for the implant.

How a bone graft works

When a tooth is extracted, artificial bone is surgically placed into the extraction site that will eventually transform into real jaw bone over a period of time, usually a few months.

Once you have healed from your bone graft, you’re ready to move on to receive your dental implants. Please contact Bessey Creek Dental Care at (772) 621-2700 to schedule a consultation to find out if dental implants are right for you.
