BONE GRAFTING – RIDGE AUGMENTATION
TREATMENTS FOR ADVANCED PERIODONTAL DISEASE
Periodontal disease is a major problem that causes a range of devastating symptoms, one of the worst being bone loss in the jaw area. The loss of bone around the teeth, along with a general weakening of the bone structure in the jaw, leads to tooth loss and facial deformation. The bone grafting procedure is done by the periodontist in order to replace lost bone tissue. The goal is to strengthen the weakened structure of the jaw while also encouraging new bone growth to start naturally. Bone grafting is a very adaptive procedure that can accomplish many things when it comes to oral reconstruction and care after advanced periodontal disease. Bone grafting treatments can help provide enough support to install dental implants and can also prevent further tooth loss and even help reshape jaw structure and appearance. At Loop Perio, we offer bone grafting treatments to many of our patients who are recovering from periodontal disease, and we can do the same for you.
