Bone Grafting Lee's Summit MO
Often associated with implant placement is the need to improve the surrounding bone quantity or quality. The loss of the original tooth usually involves the loss of bone. Trauma, infection or atrophy of the bone over time are some of the reasons for bone grafting.
In many situations the bone is placed at the time of dental implant surgery and is often not traumatic and goes unnoticed by the patient. This bone is usually artificial in nature or a form of sterile natural bone. In some instances your own bone may be utilized.
Today, with our ability to grow bone where needed, we have the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width. This gives us a chance to restore both functionality and esthetic appearance.
