Soft & Hard Tissue Grafting
Tissue regeneration to complement important procedures
Grafting plays an extremely important role in oral health. To help correct many potentially serious issues, a graft is used fill voids left by the roots of teeth that have either fallen out or been extracted, or to replace missing gum tissue on the roots of teeth. With a tooth or teeth not filling their proper place in your jaw, the bone and soft tissue around the void will go away, almost like the body assumes the tissue is no longer needed. This is not just aesthetically unpleasing, but can cause health problems as well. To prevent this from happening, a natural material is placed in the void on the root to promote regeneration. The grafting process aids with a few important procedures, including anchoring dental implants and protecting tooth roots. The main goal of a graft is to fully restore the jaw’s structure to its pre-problem strength and appearance.
