Bone Grafting from a Maxillofacial Expert
As the foundation of your smile, your bone plays an important role in your oral health and function. It supports your teeth and helps preserve your facial structure. But it needs the stimulation of tooth roots to remain dense and strong. When teeth are extracted or lost, the jawbone no longer receives stimulation and will resorb and shrink. Bone loss can lead to shifting and loosening of remaining teeth, loss of lip and cheek support, jaw joint problems, and more. To help ensure that these functional and aesthetic consequences do not occur or worsen, we provide bone grafting in Westland, MI.
As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, our doctor is especially qualified to offer comprehensive bone grafting services, from socket preservation to sinus lifts. Oral surgeons receive additional years of advanced surgical training outside of dental school in complex bone grafting treatment and are abreast of the latest techniques and materials used in these procedures. As experts in maxillofacial surgery, they are the most qualified to restore bone structure and volume lost due to extensive tooth loss, advanced gum disease, cancer treatment, severe oral trauma, and in cases of congenital deformity. With years of dedicated surgical experience, our oral surgeon at Smoler Smiles can restore your jawbone after tooth extraction and prepare you for life-changing dental implants through comfortable, predictable bone grafting treatment.
The Benefits of Bone Grafting
Bone grafting seems like just a functional treatment meant to improve your oral health. But this treatment also has more widespread benefits. Tooth and bone loss as a result of decay, trauma, disease, or genetics can lead to numerous problems that affect your ability to eat, facial aesthetics, oral and physical health, and personal wellbeing. By restoring bone levels in your jaw, we can treat any infection and disease as well as replace any missing teeth with dental implants in Westland, MI. Having a smile restored to proper function and aesthetics can significantly improve your confidence, health, and quality of life!
