Understanding Bone Grafting and Its Importance in Dental Health

Bone grafting is a crucial procedure for patients who need dental implants but do not have sufficient bone density to support these implants. At Palmetto Periodontics, we specialize in providing advanced bone grafting services right here in Columbia, SC, ensuring our patients can achieve optimal outcomes from their implant treatments.

What Is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that rebuilds bone through the transplantation of bone tissue. By restoring missing bone and promoting bone growth, this procedure enables the proper placement of dental implants and helps maintain facial structure.

The Benefits of Professional Bone Grafting

  • Restores Bone Structure: Essential for patients who have experienced bone loss due to periodontal disease, injury, or other conditions.
  • Enables Dental Implants: Provides a solid foundation for dental implants, increasing the success rate and longevity of implant surgery.
  • Prevents Further Bone Loss: Helps maintain your natural facial contour and prevents the deterioration that occurs with missing teeth.
