Bone Grafting: This procedure is performed to enhance the results of the dental implants. Instead of using your own bone for grafting purposes, Dr. Arwas makes use of the processed bones, named as xenografts. So that your implant does not fail, bone is administered most of the times to support it. Once the bone is grafted on the affected tooth, you will have to wait for several months to let it stabilize for dental implants procedure. During your wait, Dr. Arwas will make sure you keep up with your follow-up appointments to see the bone healing process.
Osseous Surgery: This procedure involves the recontouring or removal of damaged bone around your tooth. The goal of the osseous surgery is to eliminate bacteria, reduce pockets and smooth the damaged bone so that the gum tissue can reattach to your strong bone. Osseous surgery is also known as the pocket reduction surgery. This procedure may have several surgeries to enter the root of your tooth. Dr. Arwas will reshape the deformities, along with removing the pockets that may cause the periodontal disease.
