About Bone Grafting

What is Bone Grafting?

Within weeks following tooth extraction, the jawbone surrounding the missing tooth area starts to wither and is lost. This often creates a hole in the jaw appearance. In addition, often the surrounding bone tends to be of poor quality and quantity, unsuitable for the safe placement of dental implants.

Current bone grafting technology can in most instances not merely replace the lost bone, but also promote new bone growth in the same location. These techniques performed with extreme precision enable Dr. Novack to place implants of appropriate length and width to restore the functionality and natural esthetic appearance that had been lost.
