Extractions And Bone Preservation

Extractions And Bone Preservation Options In Hillsboro

By using the best modern technology available, Dr. Miller can help make the process of tooth extraction less traumatic for his patients.

Once a tooth has been removed, the bone that was supporting that tooth begins to atrophy. It is paramount to the long-term success of dental implants to have sufficient levels of supporting bone. Dr. Miller can slow this process of atrophy through an immediate placement of a bone preservation graft. If the tooth has been missing for an extended period of time or if the patient has lost bone through periodontal disease, bone regeneration grafting can help patients successfully re-grow bone that has been previously lost.

How Does Bone Preservation Work?

Dr. Miller gently pulls the gum away from the bone after making a small incision. The regenerative bone grafting material is placed with PRP – platelet-rich protein – to stimulate growth and promote healing with a comfortable recovery. Your body does the rest, quickly forming healthy bone that will support the dental implant for the long term.

With healthy bone levels, you can:

  • Be ready for future dental restorations, especially dental implants
  • Improve the longevity of your dental implants
  • Overcome bone loss caused by periodontal disease
  • Improve facial support and prevent bone atrophy
  • Improve function, appearance, and confidence
