When gum disease is severe and cannot be treated by non-surgical procedures, your dentist will probably advise you to undergo gum and bone grafting. It is a regenerative dental procedure that can be performed if the gums and bone supporting your teeth have already been destroyed. Gum and bone grafting is a minor surgical procedure that we offer here in our office in Turlock, CA.
Gum grafting is performed to treat and prevent gum disease. It also restores gum tissues to a healthy condition for it to adequately protect your teeth. Bone grafting, on the other hand, restores your jaw and bones to their original condition. Losing teeth and bone can cause your face to sag, causing you to look older. It can also complement certain treatments to restore the function of your teeth. The good thing is that because of modern technology, gums and bones can be build up again using materials from your own body or from other natural and/or synthetic material.
The entire procedure will require several visits to our office, with several weeks interval from each.
