If you are looking for oral surgery in Melbourne, Florida then Dr. Steve Sedaros is available to address any concerns you may have.
One procedure our office conducts is bone grafting, which can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants. In these situations, most patients are not candidates for placement of dental implants but instead require bone grafting instead.
The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw, hip or tibia (below the knee). Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw. In addition, special membranes may be utilized that dissolve under the gum and protect the bone graft and encourage bone regeneration. This is called guided bone regeneration or guided tissue regeneration.
Bone grafting procedures are used during sinus lift procedures, ridge expansion, and nerve repositioning. If you require bone grafting in Melbourne, Florida for any procedure then call our office to schedule an appointment (321) 610-7868.
