Bone Grafting in Greensboro, NC

Strengthen and Restore Bone and Your Confidence

Dr. Tanner helps patients build confidence in their smiles with regenerative bone grafting procedures.


Why Do I Need Bone Grafting?

If left untreated, the progression of periodontal disease has many damaging results, including shifting teeth, jaw pain, and bone loss. The presence of natural teeth allows patients to chew and bite, and it is through these routine activities that the jawbone is strengthened. Missing teeth messes with these routines, causing the jawbone to deteriorate and resulting in more serious problems, such as:

  • Additional tooth loss
  • Headaches and pain in the jaw and face
  • Distortion of the face
  • Increased wrinkling around the mouth and face
  • Problems speaking and communicating
  • Difficulty chewing and eating
Dr. Tanner provides patients with several options for restoring healthy smiles with regenerative bone grafting procedures.

Protect Your Smile with Ridge Preservation and Augmentation

There are many reasons why patients have missing teeth. There are even situations that require the extraction of certain teeth, including infection, pain, injury, or bone loss. However, a missing tooth can cause surrounding gum tissue and bone to recede at a fast pace.

By filling the space left behind from a missing tooth with bone or bone substitute, Dr. Tanner minimizes jaw bone loss. This ridge preservation technique allows the body to repair the damaged area, and provides a strong foundation for future dental implants.

When only one tooth is missing, Dr. Tanner may use ridge augmentation to strengthen a patient’s smile. Once a tooth is lost, an unsightly indentation may develop where the original tooth was located. Fortunately, Dr. Tanner can correct this defect with ridge augmentation. This procedure can also improve the quantity and quality of tissue needed for dental implant placement.
