What Is Bone Grafting?
Your teeth are anchored in your jawbone and help keep it healthy through the stimulation of chewing. When you lose a tooth, the underlying jawbone can recede, compromising other teeth and creating an unhealthy sunken facial appearance. Dr. Barksdale uses bone grafting to reestablish your jawbone volume and strength and qualify you for dental implants. For this he places a small amount of bone material in the recessed areas. Over time this will grow together with the existing bone, making your jaw strong enough to support implants. Dr. Barksdale offers multiple types of bone grafting, depending on your needs.
