Associated Oral and Implant Surgeons Treats Bone Loss in Kingsport, TN

Bone grafting allows us to place implants and restore people back to good function, whether it be eating steak and apples, smiling in their family pictures or returning to their high school reunion.

The respected oral surgeons at Associated Oral and Implant Surgeons (AOIS) offer a solution to patients who have been told they do not have proper bone volume to support a dental implant. The solution they provide is bone grafting, a procedure that rebuilds the jaw for those who have suffered from bone loss in Kingsport, TN. Bone loss in the jaw is one of the key factors that limits most patients from qualifying for dental implants, but with the help a bone graft, patients can increase their eligibility for life-changing dental implant treatment.

Bone loss occurs after an individual loses one or multiple teeth. The process of bone loss takes place when there is nothing to replace the tooth root to stimulating the bone cell’s regrowth. A dental implant helps bone cells to maintain vitality, thus keeping the implant secure without experiencing extra bone loss.

“We’ve got to have good bone quality and quantity,” says Dr. Jason Pickup. “Bone grafting allows us to place implants and restore people back to good function, whether it be eating steak and apples, smiling in their family pictures or returning to their high school reunion. These treatments allow us to help get people back to where they were.”

Bone grafting is an advanced dental procedure that utilizes samples of bone which have been converted into granules and placed into areas of bone loss. Once healed, bone grafts restore volume and form to the jawline, creating proper amounts of bone for dental implants to be placed. Patients who have previously been told they are not candidates for dental implants due to bone loss can rebuild their jaw structure to allow them to qualify for the procedure.

The team of oral surgeons at AOIS offers multiple advanced techniques to improve bone grafting procedures. Advanced guided tissue regeneration (GTR) and bone morphogenic proteins (BMP) allow the doctors to regrow bone with improved speed and quality. These techniques are typically applied while the bone graft is performed and drastically improve the results of treatment. GTR treatment helps guide the bone to heal without interference from gum tissues, while BMP improves the healing time and quality of the bone using the patient’s own blood proteins. Once bone has been restored, patients are often candidates for dental implant surgery.
