Bone Grafting
Los Altos, CA

Close up of teeth after bone grafting procedure at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry, Los Altos, CA
After a tooth is removed the jawbone begins to atrophy or is reabsorbed. When this happens it leaves a condition where there is either too little bone or poor quality bone for implant placement. In these situations most patients are not candidates for dental implants without intervention. In dentistry we have the ability to grow bone where needed. This not only gives us the ability to place implants of proper dimensions but is also restores the esthetic appearance.

Bone grafting is commonly needed prior to implant placement. In some cases it can be done concurrently with implant placement. The graft material acts as a scaffolding to dictate where the new bone needs to develop. Over the period of a few months, the graft material is absorbed by the body and the new natural bone that is deposited. The graft material can be constituted from either your natural bone harvested from a different area of your mouth, or made from a bone substitute material. These substitute materials are derived from a bone bank after undergoing a very rigorous sterilization process. Both materials are very safe and effective. Together with Dr. Field, the best choice for your treatment can be made.
