Bone Grafting

Dental implant patients may need a graft prior to the implant procedure to increase bone density. Bone grafting may also be necessary to address facial trauma or a congenital defect. Our doctors often use morphogenetic proteins to stimulate bone regrowth in the treatment area.

Corrective Jaw Surgery
