A bone graft in the state of Washington is a beneficial and necessary treatment for many people. If you’re one who needs a bone graft, then our Washington Dental Group dental team is happy to tell you a little more about it so you can better understand the treatment. This treatment might be needed because:

— The bone graft can help heal fractures in the bone, even if the fracture is new or if the fracture has failed to heal after the first attempt at treatment.

—The bone graft can promote fusion between two bones.

— The bone graft can restore bone in the jaw that was lost or affected as a result of trauma, infection, or disease.

— The bone graft can enhance the healing response of the bone tissue that is surrounding surgically implanted devices, like dental implants.

Generally, a bone graft is needed when your underlying bone has deteriorated because of infection or the loss of structure. After our dentist restores the bone with the bone graft, he will be able to perform the necessary dental treatment, like dental implants.
