At Portland Oral and Facial Surgery, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive dental solutions tailored to each individual’s needs. For patients who require additional support for their dental implants, we offer exceptional bone grafting services. These procedures create a robust foundation for your new smile by promoting bone growth and density in the jaw.
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that rebuilds the jawbone to adequately support dental implants. It’s often necessary when the jawbone is too thin or soft to hold an implant in place. The graft may come from a variety of sources, and we offer several options to cater to each patient’s unique situation.
Allograft involves using bone donated from another individual, usually sourced from a bone bank. This bone undergoes rigorous screening and sterilization processes to ensure its safety. Allografts are a good option for patients who may not have sufficient bone available for harvesting or who prefer to avoid a second surgical site.
PRF is a cutting-edge technology in bone grafting. It involves using your own blood, processed to concentrate the platelets and fibrin, known for their healing properties. PRF accelerates healing, promotes bone growth, and reduces the risk of complications.
At Portland Oral and Facial Surgery, we strive to provide the best care possible for every patient. Our team will guide you through each step of your journey, from determining the best type of bone grafting for your needs to post-operative care. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
