On a basic level, you may quickly agree that repairing your jawbone with bone grafting sounds beneficial. A damaged jaw, after all, doesn’t sound like something that you want to live with. However, when you aren’t yet seeing any signs that this is really going to have a negative impact on you, it can make it more difficult to feel highly motivated to address your current tissue damage. To put things into perspective, we ask that you make your way through some solid reasons to move forward with grafting!
#1: To Protect Or Rejuvenate Facial Support
You may wish to consider moving forward with bone grafting because if you let your jaw deteriorate further, it’s going to affect more than your oral health. Think about the way your jaw contributes to the framework of your face. When it diminishes, the lower portion of your face may sink back. As this happens, the lack of volume becomes visibly evident (it also removes support from the upper portion of your face). Choose grafting to restore or promote the fullness of a youthful face.
#2: In Preparation For Implants
Simply put, a jaw that is not healthy enough for dental implants is one that will need bone grafting. If what you desire for your smile is implants, then it is most certainly time for grafting if we have determined that you need it.
#3: To Extend The Life Of Chewing And Eating
A damaged jaw (especially one that is accompanied by a loss of teeth) is not as strong and healthy as a full, undamaged jaw. This can get in the way of your ease of chewing and speaking. Repair your jaw with bone grafting to avoid this complication.
