To do so, he is happy to share the answers to the following commonly asked questions:

Question No. 1: What is bone grafting?
Answer: Bone grafting is a treatment that involves our oral surgeon replacing missing bone with natural or synthetic bone to give you a stronger jaw, mouth and oral health.

Question No. 2: Why is it important to preserve bone and surrounding gum tissue?
Answer: Because lost bone and affected gums can make the jawbone and smile weak and fragile. In fact, the bones can collapse and become too weak to support replacement teeth with dental implants.

Question No. 3: How long does it take for a bone graft to heal?
Answer: Typically, healing takes about two to four months, depending on your health and recovery.
