Preparing For Dental Implants

Bone Grafting from a Maxillofacial Expert

As the foundation of your smile, your jawbone plays an important role in your oral health. It supports your teeth and helps preserve your facial structure. However, it needs the stimulation of tooth roots to remain dense and strong. When teeth are extracted or lost, the jawbone no longer receives stimulation and will resorb and shrink. Bone loss can lead to shifting and loosening of the remaining teeth, loss of lip and cheek support, jaw joint problems and more. To help ensure that these functional and aesthetic consequences do not occur or worsen, we provide bone grafting in West Valley/Reseda, CA.

As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Vladimir Polyakov is especially qualified to offer comprehensive bone grafting services, from socket preservation to sinus lifts. Oral surgeons receive additional years of advanced surgical training outside of dental school in complex bone grafting treatment, and with continuing education, they remain up-to-date on the latest techniques and materials used in these procedures. As experts in maxillofacial surgery, they are the most qualified to restore bone structure and volume lost due to extensive tooth loss, advanced gum disease, cancer treatment, severe oral trauma or congenital deformity. With over 30 years of dedicated surgical experience, Dr. Vladimir Polyakov at Synergy Dental Implant and Oral Surgery Center can restore your jawbone after tooth extraction and prepare you for life-changing dental implants through comfortable, predictable bone grafting treatment.

The Process for Restoring Lost Bone

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that involves placing dental bone graft material in areas where the bone has resorbed, or a tooth has been extracted. The purpose of bone grafting is to restore the proper density, height and width of the bone in the jaw. Bone grafts can be either from the patient or from a donor source, and may either be a bone block or granules. In many cases, we offer bone grafting treatment before or during implant surgery to ensure the long-term success of dental implants. Below are additional bone grafting techniques.

The Benefits of Bone Grafting

While Bone grafting seems like just a functional treatment meant to improve your oral health, this treatment also has lesser-known widespread benefits. Tooth and bone loss due to decay, trauma, disease or genetics can lead to numerous problems that affect your ability to eat, facial aesthetics, personal well-being, as well as your oral and physical health. By restoring bone levels in your jaw, we can treat oral infection and periodontal disease, as well as replace any missing teeth with dental implants in West Valley/Reseda, CA. Having a smile restored to proper function and aesthetics can significantly improve your confidence, health, and quality of life!
