How Bone Grafting Builds A Better Smile [BLOG]

Dental Crown And Bridges

Our team at the LANAP & Implant Center are always excited to share good news for anyone out there suffering the consequences of tooth loss.

Today, we want you to know that just because another dentist has told you dental implants aren’t an option for you doesn’t mean you’re out of options.

Keep reading to find out about bone grafting and how coming to our Pennsylvania dental offices for this procedure may just be what you need to build a better smile!

Tooth Loss Patients Face An Important Decision

If you’ve lost a tooth, or several, you face an important decision.

It’s not whether to replace missing teeth. For that really isn’t an option.

Here’s why:

*A lost tooth means a lost tooth root.

*Without a root, your jawbone in that area receives no stimulus.

*Without stimulation, that part of your jaw will begin to deteriorate.

*The surrounding gum tissue will also become weaker.

*The deterioration will eventually affect the surrounding bone and gum tissue.

*Your remaining teeth will loosen and, without intervention, will fall out, too.

So losing even one tooth may not seem so bad, but now you understand the dilemma? You must find a suitable tooth replacement.

The decision you’re faced with is which method will help you eat, laugh, speak, kiss, and smile confidently and ensure your best life?

If, however, too much time has passed since you lost teeth, your jawbone may already be compromised.

Bone grafting at the LANAP & Implant Center can help!

Bone Grafting Can Build A Better Smile

When you’ve lost too much bone structure in your jaw, a typical dental practice may not be able to help you find a solution that works for your lifestyle.

Sure, you can find good dentures in most dentist offices, but any sort of dental implant options will likely be off the table given your inability to support them after loss of bone mass.

That’s why so many patients all across the country come to us.

Dr. DiGiallorenzo has spent his entire career in dentistry going above and beyond to provide you with real, lasting tooth replacement strategies that will preserve the lifestyle you want.

We use bone grafting in cases where you need more support in your jaw for implant placement or where you’ve had a tooth extracted and need that area to be preserved.

With our innovative stem cell technology, we’re using your own blood to promote strong, healthy gum tissue and bone growth so your replacement teeth will be most secure. This technique also means faster healing and recovery for you!

After your successful bone grafting procedure, we’ll follow a comprehensive health plan that may include any number of our homeopathic treatments or nutritional counseling, for example, so you can maintain better oral and overall health moving forward!
