Welcome to our dental offices in Fort Myers, FL, where we specialize in bone grafting procedures, dental implants, and other oral surgeries. Whether you have a missing tooth, require tooth replacement, or are in need of extensive dental work, our skilled team is here to help.
Bone grafting is a critical procedure for rebuilding a healthy smile by preserving healthy gums and a strong jawbone. At our dental offices in Fort Myers, we offer bone grafting surgery to address jawbone recession and ensure the successful placement of dental implants. Patients with missing teeth often experience jawbone loss, caused by gum disease or tooth decay, which can impair dental function and lead to further health issues.
Our experienced oral surgeons utilize various materials, including your own bone, donor bone, or synthetic substitutes, to rebuild the jawbone and create a solid foundation for dental implants. We offer several bone grafting procedures, including bone grafting after tooth extraction, bone grafting for patients with mild bone loss, and bone grafting for patients with extensive bone loss.
During bone grafting surgery after tooth extraction, our team fills the extraction site with freeze-dried bone granules to preserve the area and prevent bone resorption. This procedure prepares the area for future dental implants, denture fitting, or partial denture use. After a healing period of four to six weeks, our patients can schedule their appointment for complete or partial dentures or proceed with dental implant restorative treatment.
For patients with mild bone loss, we address larger bony defects by combining freeze-dried bone with a portion of your own bone from another section of your mouth or body to promote proper healing and acceptance of the graft by your body, increasing the success rate. Although the surgery requires two incisions, using your own bone enhances the stability of the bone graft and supports dental implants.
Patients with extensive bone loss resulting from periodontal disease or long-term tooth loss require more comprehensive bone grafting procedures. Our oral surgeons in Fort Myers, FL use a combination of materials, including your own bone, donor bone, or synthetic substitutes to rebuild the jawbone. The grafts act as a scaffold, promoting the attachment and growth of new bone cells. Healing time varies depending on the extent of the grafting required. Once the area is fully healed, our skilled dentists or specialists can proceed with dental implant placement or denture fabrication, restoring your smile.
