Bone loss is a surprisingly common problem faced by countless people throughout the country. At 5th Avenue Dental, we offer bone regeneration treatments in Boca Raton to help you overcome the dental issues caused by bone loss.

What Causes Bone Loss?

Bone loss can be the result of a medical condition or as a side-effect of missing teeth. For example, patients with osteoporosis will experience brittle bones and progressive bone loss that may impede certain procedures. Alternatively, losing a tooth deprives the jawbone of the stimulation it needs to generate more mass.

What is Bone Regeneration?

Bone regeneration refers to procedures that aim to restore the bone mass to the sections that contain tooth sockets. The most common method of bone regeneration is a bone graft, a treatment that involves using bone from a different part of the body, cadaver, or sometimes an animal, to replace missing bone before a procedure.

Why Would I Need Bone Regeneration?

There are two main reasons for needing bone regeneration treatment:

  • To prevent further bone loss, which can cause a sunken appearance to the face and move teeth out of position.
  • To add volume to areas that require more bone for other dental procedures. For example, without the appropriate amount of healthy bone, it can be impossible to place a dental implant, in this instance, bone regeneration can facilitate the procedure.

What are the Benefits of Bone Regeneration?

  • Improve facial appearance
  • Strengthens the jawbone
  • Enables dental procedures
