One of the primary purposes of your jaw bone is to support your teeth by firmly holding them in place. Without a healthy jaw, your natural teeth can become loose or even fall out entirely and the success rate of having dental implants placed becomes compromised. The solution to a jaw affected by bone loss is through bone grafting treatments like ridge augmentation. Bone grafting makes it possible to rebuild bone lost due to deterioration, periodontal disease or oral trauma and gives you acceptable volume to support a dental implant. Better yet, bone grafting is part of our full-scope dental implant process, meaning you can receive all your implant care under the roof of the Dental Arts Studio of Cape Cod!
