If you’ve suffered from an oral infection in the past, have receding gums, or suffer from Osteopenia or other bone loss illnesses, you may need a dental bone graft. As we age, our bones become more brittle and, in many cases, we lose bone due to illness, injuries, or medical issues.
At All Smiles Northwest, we can expertly diagnose any bone loss in your jaw and offer effective bone replacement grafts that will keep your teeth secured and your smile protected. Our team of licensed and board-certified dentists and dental surgeons boasts years of experience in the field, and we’re happy to answer all of your questions.

Having a strong, healthy jawbone is essential for optimal oral health. There are two common reasons for bone deterioration in the jaw. Bone loss may be caused by advanced periodontitis, in which an untreated bacterial infection spreads to the bone, or it may be the result of missing teeth, which deprives the jawbone of the regular stimulation it needs to stay strong and healthy. Bone loss can have serious and lasting consequences for your oral health, as well as your overall wellbeing. Common signs of bone loss include:

If you’re missing teeth, a dental implant may be in order. However, if your jawbone has been weakened due to disease, illness, or injury, you’ll first need a bone graft. Jawbone grafts are typically an outpatient procedure and use bone material harvested from your own body, a synthetic amalgam of real bone and other materials, or sterilized animal bones. When attached to your jaw, these materials act as a placeholder that will encourage your body to grow natural bone around it. Bone grafts offer several benefits during corrective dental procedures that include:
Our team has years of experience with dental bone grafts and we’re happy to answer your questions or allay any concerns. When it comes to reliable dental surgery and services, All Smiles Northwest is your best choice.
Bone grafts involve taking either a synthetic bone material, or a piece of bone from elsewhere in the body, and placing it in the jawbone. Over a period of several months, the presence of the new bone will stimulate your body to produce new bone tissue. Eventually, the original tissue from the graft is absorbed and replaced by the new tissue. Not only can your regenerated jawbone help to improve the appearance of your face, but it can also make it easier for you to maintain good oral health by replacing missing teeth as quickly as possible.
We’ve performed countless bone graft surgeries over the years and our dental experts will ensure you feel at ease throughout the procedure. Experience improved biting and chewing functions, better cosmetic appearance to your jawline, and true peace of mind by calling us today for more information.
