Bone Grafting - Canton, MA
Restore Lost Bone to Qualify for Dental Implants
Bone grafting in Canton, MA, involves taking a sample of bone tissue from you or a donor source and converting it into sand-like granules. These granules are then packed at the site of bone loss and allowed to heal. Once healed, the bone granules will fuse to your surrounding bone tissue and restore the volume to adequate levels. For most bone grafting procedures, we will perform guided tissue regeneration (GTR) techniques to ensure that the treatment heals effectively. The GTR process involves protecting your bone graft while it heals using a biocompatible mesh. This prevents gum tissue from interfering with the bone graft and allows it to heal to the proper volume.
