Soft Tissue Grafting & Bone Grafting in Spring Hill, TN
Dental Bone & Tissue Grafts in Spring Hill, TN
Cavities, periodontal disease, injury, and age can compromise your teeth, gums, and bone. Tooth loss can affect your oral health causing the surrounding and opposing teeth to shift if the missing space is not filled. Also, your bite may change causing the shape of your face to change. Your overall health can be affected by missing teeth. Dental implants, fixed bridges, and removable partial dentures are ways to fill the space caused by missing teeth. However, sometimes there is not enough bone to support an implant.
Dentistry by Design offers bone and tissue grafting as a part of our dental services. During these procedures, Dr. Robinette will place a small piece of bone on the affected site. Bone is living tissue, and with the placement of this small piece, your body can grow new bone at that location. A similar procedure can be used to replace lost gum tissue. Bone grafts are sometimes placed as a preventative measure upon tooth extraction, depending on the situation.
Generally, a dental professional will use one of three types of bone grafts:
- An allograft, which is a sample taken from another person.
- An autograft, which is taken from another place in your jaw.
- A xenograft, which may be taken from an animal or may be a synthetic material.
Each type offers specific advantages and disadvantages, so we will work closely with you to determine the best approach.
It may seem farfetched, but dental professionals have been using bone and tissue grafts for many years. Our bodies are capable of many incredible things – and growing new tissue is one of them. This is just one of the numerous dental services provided here at Dentistry by Design. We are committed to your health and well-being and are here to make your experience a pleasant one.
