Dental Bone Grafting in Glenpool
Dental bone is vitally important to the structure of our teeth, jaw, and overall facial appearance. When bone is lost through injury, gum disease or missing or extracted teeth, a bone graft can provide the foundation for reconstruction such as a dental implant or other dental procedure.
A bone graft is the process of filling an area with material such as bone taken from another part of your body, synthetic or cadaver bone, or animal bone. After filling the area, a seal is placed over the graft and stitches close the area in preparation for healing. Once the graft has healed completely, you are ready for the next step in your dental reconstruction.
