Bone Grafting

Many patients who desire to replace missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures with dental implants learn that they no longer have sufficient bone structure (height, width and density) to support a dental implant.  Bone grafting can correct these deficiencies, while preparing the area to receive a dental implant. 

Bone grafting procedures can range from very simple (adding bone around the neck of an implant) to more complex (adding width or height to the bone structure).  Whether replacing a single missing tooth or an entire dental arch, advances in bone grafting techniques make it possible for almost every patient to reap the benefits of permanent tooth replacement with dental implants.

With over 25 years of experience correcting inadequacies in bone structure, Dr. Peters has the expertise to determine the most conservative treatment options and to apply the appropriate techniques, correcting deficiencies with a high rate of predictability.
