Bone Grafting - Canandaigua, NY

Turned Away for Dental Implants?

Bone Grafting Gives You a Second Chance

When you’re missing teeth, eating, speaking, and even smiling can be awkward and challenging. Dental implants are the ideal solution, but depending upon the state of your jaw, you may not be able to get them right away. Your teeth are anchored in your jawbone via their roots. When any of your teeth fall out, the bone underneath can weaken and deteriorate. So, what began as tooth loss can end up as jawbone loss. Without a full, strong jawbone as an anchor point, you may not be able to receive dental implants. Dr. Germain Jean-Charles, and the rest of our highly skilled team can rebuild your jaw mass with a procedure called bone grafting. This can not only make you a candidate for dental implants, but also restore the distinctive shape of your face and give you the healthy, youthful appearance you desire. Consider us your premier source for comprehensive dental implant care in Canandaigua, NY.

The Steps to a Restored Smile

Bone grafting involves placing a small portion of bone in the area of your jaw where you have experienced bone loss. This graft will eventually fuse with and become a permanent part of your jawbone. Once healed, your restored jawbone will support dental implants. If your bone loss is concentrated in your upper jaw, your sinus can collapse. Our team can correct this condition with a sinus lift, during which we carefully elevate your sinus cavity and place grafting material underneath to reinforce the jawbone. When your bone loss is so extensive that it has jeopardized your jaw’s function and esthetics, we can perform a ridge augmentation. With this, we use grafting material to bring back the natural contours of your jaw, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile again, which returns your unique look to your face. In addition to grafting, we can stimulate your body to regrow its own bone with revolutionary, biologically based bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) treatment. Schedule a consultation and come see which treatment options are best for you.
