What is Dental Bone Grafting?

We understand that dental procedures can seem intimidating, but we want to assure our patients that we strive to make each experience as comfortable as possible. One of the procedures we may recommend is dental bone grafting. This is a process that involves adding bone to the jaw in the case of tooth loss, gum disease, or trauma. The additional bone serves as a foundation for dental implants or other restorations, ensuring strength and longevity in your dental work. The bone may come from other parts of your body or artificial sources, and the procedure is done under local anesthesia for your comfort. Our team at Great White Dental is trained and experienced in bone grafting procedures, ensuring the best possible outcome for our patients. Don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you may have about this procedure or other dental needs. We are here to support you every step of the way.

What is Ridge Augmentation?

Ridge augmentation is a dental procedure that involves building up the bone around a missing tooth so that an implant can be placed. Over time, bone loss occurs when a tooth is missing, leading to a reduction in the size of the ridge. Ridge augmentation is a great option for those who have suffered from bone loss or who have a thin jawbone. It is a straightforward procedure that typically involves placing graft material into the affected area to stimulate the growth of new bone. With ridge augmentation, patients can receive dental implants without the need for complicated and invasive procedures. 

While similar in some ways, these two procedures actually serve different purposes. Bone grafting involves taking bone from a different area of the body or using a synthetic material to add a significant amount of bone to the jaw. This is done for patients who lack enough bone mass in their jaw to support dental implants. On the other hand, ridge augmentation strengthens the existing bone by adding a small amount of bone material to the existing ridge. This is done to fix unevenness in the jawline that can occur after tooth loss. Whatever your dental needs may be, our friendly and knowledgeable team at Great White Dental is here to help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
