Bone Grafts

Dentist in West Branch

Bone grafts are sometimes recommended as a method of providing increased structural stability in the jaw or to provide healthy bone for implant placement. Dr. Erpardo will expertly perform your bone graft to enhance success for implant placement.

Bone grafting involves taking a piece of bone, either from a tissue bank or another part of the body, and surgically inserting it into your existing bone structure. With bone grafting, we add new bone to your jawbone or the back portion of your upper jaw.

Once healed, the grafted bone has become part of your jaw. This creates a stronger, thicker bone structure capable of supporting dental implants. At this point, we can work with you to select and place your dental implants and restore your full, healthy smile.
