Bone Grafting

Dr. Burton Melton may recommend performing a bone graft if you have bone loss in your jawbone due to missing teeth. Without having a tooth to help stabilize the jawbone, the bone starts to deteriorate, making it difficult to place dental implants. If this is the case, you will most likely need a bone graft before you receive your new restoration.
