Bone Grafting

Grow Back Bone Density in Frisco, TX

Gum disease can affect more than your gums. Not only does advanced periodontal disease put your teeth in jeopardy, but it can also weaken the bones in your jaw. While our Frisco periodontic dentist would love to stop gum disease before it reaches that point, our office is prepared to deal with the later stages of periodontitis. 

Take heart—if you come to Hunt Family Dentistry with gum disease that’s damaged bone, we can perform an expert bone grafting procedure. This restores your bone, encourages new growth, and sets you on the path to overall oral health.

What Is Bone Grafting for Teeth and Gum Care?

Bone grafting enhances the foundation of your teeth and gums. Dr. Hunt transplants bone tissue to an area where you’ve lost bone density. By doing that, we can stimulate bone growth. That means that the grafting itself doesn’t just add bone but it also encourages the growth of more. 

 

Grafting is particularly beneficial for patients who have suffered bone loss in their jaw due to periodontal disease. However, we can also use it for loss of bone density from injuries or lost teeth. This process not only improves the structural integrity of your jaw but also fosters a healthier environment for your gums and remaining teeth, contributing to overall oral well-being.
