The jawbone is vital for supporting your teeth, but it can be susceptible to bone loss. Gum or periodontal disease can result in bone and tooth loss and once the tooth is gone, more bone loss can occur. Dental implants are the premium option in replacing missing teeth, but they do require enough healthy bone to support the implant post. For some patients, bone graft surgery is needed to strengthen the jawbone to improve bone density for dental implants. At First Smile Family Dental, we offer bone grafting periodontics surgery at our dental center in Federal Way, WA.

Dental bone grafting uses harvested bone tissue to stimulate new bone growth in the jaw. This can be completed whenever significant bone loss has occurred and increasing bone can benefit the patient. For some patients, a bone graft may be recommended to prevent tooth loss. Those with periodontitis or gum disease may be in jeopardy of tooth loss due to bone disintegration. Bone graft surgery can increase bone in the jaw to preserve teeth and the jaw structure.

Bone Grafting for Dental Implants

One of the most common reasons for dental bone graft surgery is in preparation for dental implants. Many people who have lost teeth have bone loss in the jaw. To ensure the dental implant restoration procedure is successful to replace lost teeth, bone must be increased in the jaw. Bone grafting may be completed before a dental implant surgery or during the implant procedure. This can help stimulate bone growth to support the implant and anchor the tooth restoration in place.

Whether you need to increase bone in the jaw to prevent tooth loss or as preparation for dental implants, Dr. Vien Nguyen can perform this advanced periodontics surgery at our state-of-the-art dental center.

    I absolutely LOVE Dr. Nguyen! She was kind, compassionate, and exactly what I need in a dentist! She made me feel comfortable right away and genuinely cared about me as a person, AND the health of my teeth!

  • Terry H.

    From the time my husband and I walked in the door to walking out it was absolutely amazing!! The care from the receptionist to the technician to the dentist was without a doubt the most professional caring understanding staff. I am not one who enjoys the dentist but they made it so that I was very relaxed and look forward to going again.

  • Kyle G.

    Top of the line customer service from the front desk to the dental chair. Really happy with not only the doctor, but her assistant and everyone that worked there. The cleaning was expertly done, all photos and decisions were thoughtfully explained and I learned new things about my teeth that I did not know before.
