Bone Grafting in Minneapolis, MN

Bone Grafting for Dental Implants

To Save the Smile You Love, We Start with a Solid Foundation

Do you love your smile?

The jaw bone is the foundation that shapes your uniquely beautiful smile by providing a stable supporting structure for your teeth and facial features. If this bone begins to recede, it can drastically change the way you look over time. Dr. Anna Weber may recommend bone grafting to replace and restore the bone after gum disease, tooth loss, or trauma, or to prepare the mouth for dental implants. Bone grafting may sound scary to some patients, so we offer sedation dentistry to help you relax during this smile-saving treatment.

You May Need Bone Grafting If…

  • The Bone is Not Tall Enough
  • The Bone is Not Wide Enough
  • You Need More Bone in Preparation for Dental Implants

Benefits of Bone Grafting

  • Restores Healthy Bone
  • Maintains Bone Structure
  • Preserves Natural Facial Features

What is Ridge Augmentation?

Following a tooth extraction, we may need to reshape the gums and bone that have been affected by the tooth loss. This helps recreate a natural look and contour for a beautiful smile.

What is Ridge Preservation?

Ridge preservation helps to preserve as much of the jaw bone as possible following the loss of a tooth by replacing the bone with a grafting material to support the surrounding tissues. This helps us prevent rapid bone loss that could affect tooth replacement later on, and maintains bone structure so your smile retains its natural look and beauty.
