Restoring the Strength and Function of the Jawbone
When bone is lost, due to gum disease, tooth loss, injury or ill-fitting dentures, a cascade of problems begins. Bone loss degrades the natural contours of your jaw and chin, diminishing facial fullness and changing your appearance. Teeth become loose, eating becomes more difficult and your facial features begin to sink. Bone tissue will not grow back on its own, but fortunately, bone grafting procedures can rebuild your jaw to restore a healthy foundation for you to smile again.
Bone Grafting also makes dental implants possible! At COAFS, our surgeons utilize recent advances in medicine, state-of-the-art technology and minimally invasive techniques to allow patients to experience quick recovery without complications.
Enabling dental implant placement, preserving recent extraction site, restoring the appearance of an arch and saving periodontally involved teeth.
At Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery, each one of our surgeons takes a proactive stance on tissue preservation. Bone and gum tissue loss following teeth removal can either be greatly reduced or completely eliminated thanks to advances in grafting procedures and the bioengineering techniques such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF).
