Beaverton implant dentist Dr. James A Miller is highly qualified to provide the surgical procedures of bone grafting and ridge augmentation when needed. Bone grafting is used to prepare a site for dental implants that are needed to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Bone, in an area where teeth have been lost, naturally shrinks or resorbs over time, both in height and width. As a result, new bone must be grafted to create a secure site for placing dental implants and to achieve an aesthetic results. Adequate bone ensures long term success of dental implants that are used to replace missing teeth. Bone grafting can also be used to save teeth that have experienced bone loss resulting from gum disease.
