When receiving an implant, a bone graft can create a more solid base for the implanted structure. Sometimes after we’ve had teeth removed, bone grafting is a great option to maintain the contours of the jaws. Bone graft material is expertly placed where needed, covered with a protective barrier, and within just a few months, you will have regained your natural volume of bone that would otherwise have been lost.
Jaw Reshaping, otherwise known as alveoloplasty, is a common oral surgery practice used to shape and smooth the jawline to achieve maximum comfort and stability when we transition into dentures. The good news is most patients recover faster than having a tooth removed!
