When it comes to bone reconstruction perioboca dentists optimize comfort, function and aesthetics. Bone grafting is required to replace missing bony tissue, and in many cases support the placement of dental implants. Bone grafting is a reliable and trusted procedure where bone is transferred from one area or location and placed into a new location. The surgeon can therefore “build bone” in areas where it is missing. In the practice of periodontal surgery, the need for bone grafting presents itself in a multitude of situations.
The dentists at perioboca have had extensive training and experience in the areas of bone grafting and reconstruction. We also utilize the industry’s highest quality materials and standards of care. Which means you can relax in the knowledge that you are in safe hands!
The usual question is “Where Do You Get The Bone?” or “Where Does The Bone Come From?”
There are four graft choices:
Autogeous Grafts: The bone comes from within the same individual. In other words, the patient is his/her own donor.
Allografts: The bone comes from another human donor.
Xenografts: Donor bone derived from another species, usually bovine sources.
Synthetic Grafts: Bone created from Hydroxyapatite, Hydroxyapatite combined with B-Tricalcium phosphate, and Calcium Sulfate.
What is Bone Graft Anyway?When your tooth is extracted, there will be a void in your bone where the tooth used to be. This void is called an extraction socket. A bone graft is a highly specialized material that fills the extraction socket.
High-quality bone graft materials will:
• Preserve the health and strength of your jaw bone
• Dissolve over time, allowing your body to regenerate its own bone cells
• Preserve the integrity of your gums
• Lay the foundation for a functional and beautiful implant crown or bridge
There are a few different options of materials that can be used to fill extraction sockets. Your Dentist is trained to select the best material for your needs. Options include:
• Bone from another area of your mouth
• Donated tissue (most common & effective)
• Synthetic chemical compounds

What if I don't get a Bone Graft?After a tooth is extracted, the body will adjust and adapt to the missing-tooth site. These changes may affect your bone, gums, and adjacent teeth or crowns.
Your BONE may become:
• Too narrow for a dental implant
• Too short for an attractive bridge
Your GUMS may:
• Recede away from your tooth roots
• Become thin or compromised
Your TEETH or CROWNS may:
• Shift or tilt out of alignment
