ImplantsDental implants are artificial tooth roots that is submerged into the jaw bone to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look and function like natural teeth. If there is insufficient bone for attachment, the patient's bone or an artificial bone must be grafted.Titanium1Implants may not completely replace natural teeth, but are the best alternative for treatment available today. But even implants may result in the bones becoming weak, or causing abnormal sensations, from improper surgical procedures, so a dentists knowledge, experience and skill is preferable to selecting a provider based on cost alone.Download PDF
Bone GraftBone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone with material from patient's own body, an artificial, synthetic, or natural substitute. Bone grafting is possible because bone tissue has the ability to regenerate completely if provided the space into which it has to grow. As natural bone grows, it generally replaces the graft material completely, resulting in a fully integrated region of new bone.Patients, Corpes, Synthetic and Others Species1Bone grafts are used as a filler and scaffold to facilitate bone formation and promote wound healing. These grafts are bioresorbable and have no antigen-antibody reaction. These bone grafts act as a mineral reservoir which induces new bone formation.Download PDF
Tissue GraftA gum graft, also known as a gingival graft, can correct receding gums. Your dentist may refer you to a periodontist, a gum specialist, for this simple surgical procedure.Free Gingival Graft, Connective tissue graft and Pedicle Graft1In a gum graft, your periodontist first removes a piece of tissue from the roof of your mouth or from nearby healthy gum tissue. They next attach it to the area where your gums have worn away. This procedure is relatively quick, and you can leave as soon as it’s done.Download PDF

ExtractionsA dental extraction (also referred to as tooth extraction, exodontia, exodontics, or informally, tooth pulling) is the removal of teeth from the dental alveolus (socket) in the alveolar bone.1 – 2Although permanent teeth were meant to last a lifetime, there are a number of reasons why tooth extraction may be needed. A very common reason involves a tooth that is too badly damaged, from trauma or decay, to be repaired.Download PDF
