Bone Grafting in San Diego, CA
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that works to replace missing bone in order to repair bone fractures. This procedure is done on fractures that may be extremely complex, pose a significant health risk to the patient, or fractures that may have failed to heal properly. Some small or acute fractures can be cured without bone grafting, but the risk is greater for large fractures like compound fractures.
At The Perio Pocket - SD Implants & Aesthetics, Dr. Yvette Carrillo can perform bone grafting services to restore your smile and reduce the effects of previous bone fractures. Dr. Carrillo provides compassionate, knowledgeable periodontal care with over seven years of dental expertise.
Sinus Bone Graft Surgery
Patients with reduced jawbone structures can get a sinus lift to make getting dental implants possible and easier. This procedure inserts a small amount of bone into the sinus cavity to facilitate more secure implantation. Before the procedure, your periodontist will determine the best location to take bone from, or they may opt for synthetic bone.
Our team keeps you comfortable before, during, and after your sinus bone graft surgery. After the procedure, you’ll receive antibiotics and instructions for a successful recovery.
Bone Grafting Services
Gum disease can also lead to bone and tooth loss. Your jawbone must maintain its structural integrity to be eligible for dental implants.
Dr. Carrillo can perform a bone graft if you want implants but have a decayed jawbone. This process requires filling the area with bone powder and bone from another part of the mouth in extreme cases.
