Bone Graft Fort Lauderdale - Banner

Bone Graft

If the bone in your jaw is too soft, or it isn’t thick enough, you might require a bone graft prior to dental implant placement. The strong chewing force puts strong pressure on the jawbone, and if it is too small or too weak, it can cause the implant surgery to fail. A bone graft may be necessary to create a strong base for a denture or implant.

What is a bone graft?

If you have lost a tooth and the gap is left untreated for an extended period, the jawbone below that space will gradually wear down (resorb) because it stops regenerating itself. The jawbone needs the stimulation of chewing forces and teeth to support in order to remain strong. The bone level will decrease as the bone resorbs, and the gum tissue in the area decreases as well. When patients need dentures or dental implants, but the bone has already started to decrease below the gum tissue, a bone grafting procedure may be necessary. The bone can be rebuilt and the tooth socket restored with a bone grafting procedure, providing the necessary foundation for dental implants or dentures.

A bone grafting procedure has many benefits including:
  • A healthier, stronger jawbone
  • A strong base to support a denture or implant
  • A tooth socket can be restored
  • Bone can be strengthened and rebuilt
Dr. Cintron has extensive skill and experience in performing bone grafts. Her method of bone grafting is safe, effective, professional, precise, and it is tailored to each patient’s needs.

If a tooth has been missing for an extended period of time, extensive bone grafting may be required before the doctor can proceed with a denture or implant placement. It is nothing to be concerned about, bone grafting today is a painless, predictable, routine procedure.

Dr Cintron removed all my mercury fillings and removed them with the right protocol. She is very gentle and I felt know pain. Her staff was amazing as well. Great Experience. The office is very professional and friendly. I would recommend this office to everyone I know."
