When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone will immediately start to deteriorate. This deterioration can cause adjacent teeth to shift, loss of facial structure and the inability to restore missing teeth with dental implants. Dr. Daren Larsen and Dr. Josh Haslem provide bone grafting procedures to rebuild lost bone and restore missing teeth with dental implants in Vernal, UT. Contact our office today to receive your appointment.
Bone loss is fairly common and can occur due to tooth loss, trauma, infection or disease. Bone loss can make it very difficult, if not impossible, to restore your missing teeth with dental implants. A dental implant needs to be anchored into enough bone to provide stability to your bite and to preserve the longevity of your new teeth. We provide safe and effective bone grafting procedures to rebuild lost bone and expand your tooth replacement options.
There are three types of bone grafting procedures: xenograft, autogenous and allograft. Our doctors will discuss with you, in depth, your treatment options and answer all of your questions to determine which procedure is right for your individual case. You will be numbed before the procedure to ensure your comfort. We also offer several sedation options to make sure you are at ease throughout your entire appointment time. Donated bone used in your grafting procedure can be your own bone obtained from a second surgical site or we may use bone obtained from a safe and highly-screened medical bone bank. Bone grafting is an ideal way to rebuild bone structure and to give you the best chance at restoring your bite and your quality of life with dental implants.
