Tissue Grafting

You might be interested to understand that the jawbone that surrounds the roots of teeth is there because of the work that your teeth put on that jaw. When a tooth is removed and the forces on it are gone, the jawbone tends to go away.  Whether regaining attachment to support natural teeth or optimal placement of dental implants, grafting and guided tissue regeneration allows us to put the bone where it needs to be to replace your loss. If placed in a healthy environment, it can last a lifetime.
