Bone Regeneration


Dental assistant explains x-ray to the client in the dental chairWhen it comes to your dental health and aesthetics, the jawbone plays a crucial role. It provides strong and stable support to your teeth, forming the natural structure of your mouth and maintaining your facial appearance. Hence, the deterioration of the jawbone can be quite a worrisome sign.

At Serenity Dental, Dr. Welton offers several dental solutions, such as bone regeneration therapy, which can maintain and restore the health of your jawbone.

Causes of Bone Loss


Bone loss of the jawbone is a natural result of a few things:
•  Missing Teeth: The jawbone needs continuous stimulus through biting and chewing to become stronger and grow. When a tooth is lost, that part of the jawbone is not stimulated enough and becomes reabsorbed by the body.
•  Periodontitis: Periodontitis is an advanced and chronic form of gum disease, which leads to severe destruction of the soft and hard tissues that support your teeth. If this bacterial infection is allowed to progress unchecked, it can result in the deterioration of the jawbone.
•  Dental Trauma: A trauma to the mouth can result in fractured or loose tooth or can cause damage to your jaw. All these things can result in infection and inflammation, which can destroy the bone in the jaw.
•  Oral Infection: Any kind of oral infection from a virus, bacteria, and tumor can spread to the jawbone and damage the hard tissues.

Bone Regeneration Treatment


Bone regeneration is an oral surgery that is done to promote the growth of new bone in low-density areas of the jaw. This involves placing a bone grafting material in a place where you want the bone to reform. This graft will fuse with the natural bone and start to grow until it develops a blood supply of its own and will become one with the hard tissues in your jaw.

At Serenity Dental, Dr. Welton performs a bone regeneration procedure in a single session.
We will administer local anesthesia and some form of sedation so that you remain as comfortable as possible. We will then create an incision on the gum that covers the area where the bone loss has occurred. Once the underlying bone is exposed, we will look for signs of infection.

If an infection is present, we will remove the diseased bone and clean the area properly. The biocompatible graft material is then placed into the cavity and covered with collagen, which can help the bone to develop.

The surgical site is then sutured closed and the bone is regenerated anywhere between four to 12 months, depending on your jaw health and other factors.

When is Bone Regeneration Treatment Necessary?


Bone regeneration procedure may be required to:
•  Increase dental support: If bone loss is not treated, it can lead to the loss of further teeth. Hence, bone regeneration therapy can help increase the support to your teeth.
•  Preserve bone structure: Bone grafting is also used as a preventive measure after a tooth is extracted. By adding bone grafting material to the empty tooth socket, we can help preserve the integrity of your jaw.
•  Improve Facial Appearance: When your jaw deteriorates, your face will lose its firmness, your cheeks will sag, and your mouth will pucker inwards. Hence, your face will lose its pleasing appearance. Bone regeneration can prevent your face from collapsing.
•  Support Dental Implants: Dental implants are used to replace your missing teeth. However, this surgery can fail if your jaw does not have high bone density. Hence, we recommend getting a bone regeneration therapy so that your jaw is strong enough to support the implant.

Inadequate or damaged jawbone can lead to a lot of oral health and aesthetic issues. At Serenity Dental, Dr. Welton can help your jaw regain its strength and stability. Call us today at (509) 209-8537 to schedule a consultation with us.
