Bone Grafting/Augmentation

Bone Grafting/Augmentation in South Brunswick

Bone grafting and ridge augmentation procedures are sometimes necessary to replace bone that has been lost as a result of periodontal disease or tooth loss. A bone graft or ridge augmentation may be used to  allow placement of a dental implant in an area where there is not enough natural bone to accept the implant.  In addition, they may be used to ‘fill in’ periodontal pockets as well as after the extraction of a tooth, to avoid  a ‘sunken in’ appearance of the extraction site. At Doctors of Dental Medicine our Oral Surgeon, Dr. Hirschlag, is expert at performing these procedures.
