Even a single missing tooth can cause jawbone deterioration, which can lead to further oral health issues.
Bone grafting can rebuild your jaw, allowing you to qualify for dental implants to stop further bone loss and repair your smile.
See how our skilled dentists in Orland Park, IL, can restore your oral health and function with a bone graft.
What is Bone Grafting?
Bone grafting is a dental procedure in which your dentist uses autograft methods (a patient's own bone tissue), allograft methods (bone tissue taken from a donor), or synthetic methods (a manmade bone material) to fill in areas of bone loss in your jaw. Bone loss can occur when a patient loses teeth. The jawbone no longer receives the stimulation the tooth roots once provided and can begin to deteriorate. If left untreated, this can lead to further tooth loss and a sunken facial appearance.

My Implant journey has been nothing short of amazing. I cannot extol enough praise for Dr. Akhras. I have my smile back. He has given me the confidence to laugh unabashedly, speak boldly, and grin from ear to ear. For those of you who are considering dental implants please come to Premier dental, and see the photos of my before and after and be amazed. He is the best of the best!!!View on Google
