If you are unsure about the details of bone grafting, you are not alone. There are many who wonder how bone grafting works, which is why our team here at Dr. Kolodner Dental Group Inc. in Studio City, California, is happy to give you the information and tools you may need to understand if this procedure may be right for you.

Bone grafting is an important dental procedure that can become necessary if you suffer from bone loss, or if you need a dental implant to restore your smile and don’t have enough jaw support. When your jaw does not have enough bone structure to support your implant, then your doctor may need to restore the bone loss through a surgical procedure called bone grafting.

Bone loss can occur in any smile. Gum disease or even a common accident can lead to bone loss if left untreated. When you let gum disease go untouched for too long, then you could suffer from tooth loss, leaving the hole in your gum line. This can cause your bone to deteriorate in time leaving you with a need for a bone graft procedure. That is why having a bone grafting procedure may be necessary to restore your missing tooth, and in turn, restore your oral health.
