Petaluma area dentist offers holistic bone grafting
Dentin grinder explained
Using a special device called a dentin grinder, Dr. Jurina Smida can quickly and easily grind down a natural extracted tooth and use this material to provide an autologous graft. This is done in lieu of using cadaver bone or other materials that are often donated or created from manmade materials. This speeds up the process, as the material is available immediately after extraction to the patient for bone grafting.
When is bone grafting performed?
Patients may seek bone grafting treatment when they have experienced the loss of bone in the jaw. This is often caused by the loss of natural teeth. The bone naturally erodes over time and can make it difficult for patients to obtain dental implants. Implants require sufficient bone structure for successful placement. In preparation of placing dental implants, patients may have bone grafting performed.
