Bone Grafting

Bone Grafting in Gurnee, IL

A treatment called bone grafting may be an option for patients whose jaws are losing bone. The affected area of bone loss gains volume and density thanks to bone grafting. Where a bone graft is inserted, your own tissue develops and heals. This is occasionally combined with PRP therapy. Your own blood is used to create platelet rich plasma, which is then injected back into the treatment region. This procedure encourages tissue regeneration, which speeds up your body’s healing process.

There are several different methods used to develop bone grafts: 

  • Autogenous Grafts: are developed by taking materials from your own body
  • Xenografts: are purchased from animal tissue banks
  • Allografts: which are purchased from human tissue banks
  • Alloplasts: which are synthetically created and modified

The four main types of bone grafts:

  • Ridge Augmentation provides implants with a stable foundation by adding width and volume to the jaw bone.
  • Socket Preservation prevents socket caving by filling the void after a tooth is extracted.
  • Periodontal Bone Grafting provides support to existing teeth that may have become loose due to gum disease eroding the bone
  • Sinus Lifts raise the sinuses back to their natural position when missing upper back teeth have caused them to drop. Prior to placing implants, a sinus lift may be required to avoid penetration of the sinus membrane. 

Bone grafts need time to fully mend before the implant is inserted. Although it might seem difficult, this process is actually quite routine. At Northwestern Dental Group, you can relax knowing that you are in capable hands.
