Bone Grafting Procedures in Oxford and Lake Orion, MI
Bone loss can be a serious problem for some patients. In the jaw, bone loss may result from tooth loss, trauma, infection, or another disease. If you have severe enough bone loss, your mouth may be unable to support dental implants, dentures, or other replacement teeth.
Bone grafting can solve this problem. Our doctors will take bone from elsewhere in your body or use synthetic bone to replace the bone you have lost. The grafted bone is secured with a surgical screw, and a special membrane is usually placed for protection. Over time, your existing bone and the grafted bone will integrate or fuse together.
A bone graft can help give you a set of natural-appearing and functional teeth. Call our office at (248) 969-9500 (Oxford) and (248) 393-1888 (Lake Orion) to learn more or make an appointment.
