In our day and age of dental implants, one thing that is often overlooked is the importance for preparing the jawbone to receive those dental implants. So we make sure that we discuss with you in advance what your future goals are. If we're going to be discussing removing teeth, or we have already missing teeth, and we're considering something like a dental implant, it's very important to plan ahead and to make sure that we prepare that area so the dental implant has the best chance for success. And one of the ways we do that is with bone grafting, and while there's probably a lot of misconception out there about what grafting is and what it isn't, it's a very safe and effective way to make sure that we prepare that area that's going to receive the implant for its best success. So we offer different kinds of bone grafting in our office ranging from simple to more complex. So come in. We'll discuss if bone grafting is something that is even necessary for you, and if so, the way that it can help prepare you to receive future restorations.

Bone Grafting Allows For a Full Smile
Over time, the bone tissue in your jaw can naturally deteriorate. Missing teeth can speed up this process because your tooth roots are no longer present to stimulate the bone. To strengthen your jaw and prepare your mouth for replacement teeth, bone grafting may be necessary.
Dr. Wallin has undergone extensive training in oral surgery procedures so he can provide exceptional patient care. For your bone grafting procedure, he will:
- Use state-of-the-art digital X-rays to assess your situation and precisely plan your treatment
- Place healthy bone tissue over your weakened tissue where it will grow and strengthen your jaw
- Recommend implant restoration options after you are fully healed to complete your new smile
Dr. Wallin understands that every case is different and deserves custom solutions. We will explain all your options and help you come up with a plan that best suits your needs and goals.
