If the bone structure of your jaw has eroded or has extensive damage, Dr. Asad Chaudhry may recommend a bone grafting procedure. There are many different causes for bone erosion, from re-absorption following a lost tooth to periodontal (gum) disease. Bone grafting may also be recommended if the density of your jaw is not thick enough to support a dental implant.
Grafting is an oral surgery procedure performed right in our office. This procedure allows our dentist, Dr. Chaudhry, to add bone to the structure within your jaw, preparing it for your dental restoration. The grafted bone will grow into your jaw, reinforcing and strengthening the existing bone structure and then can be restored.
As with any of our dental procedures, we invite you to contact our office if you have any questions. To find out more about bone grafting in Somerville, New Jersey, call (908) 725-0200 today! Our team is happy to answer your questions.
