Bone Grafting for Deteriorated or Damaged Jawbones
If a tooth has been missing for a long period of time, that area of the jawbone can be poor quality, which makes dental implants difficult or impossible to place. Great Plains OMS can restore that portion of the jawbone to allow the placement of any needed dental implants. There are various bone grafting methods used by oral surgeons. Bone can be taken from various sources such as grafting products, tissue banks, or the patient’s own bone. If extensive damage has occurred from traumatic injury, major congenital defects, or tumors, the procedure may be performed in a hospital instead of our patient surgery center. Dr. Nielson can perform this surgery at either location.
