CHERRY HILL, N.J., Jan. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Periodontists Drs. Mario J. Canal and Ben Calem of Canal Calem Periodontics turn to bone grafting in Cherry Hill, NJ, to improve many patients' oral health and now welcome new patients for a custom bone grafting consultation. When properly implemented, bone grafting can improve oral and systemic health, as well as help patients prepare for dental implants that require healthy levels of bone density.
In simple terms, bone grafting treatment takes bone material from the patient or a donor source and places it where bone tissue is lacking in the jawbone. This surgical treatment rebuilds new bone and re-strengthens areas of low bone density.
Bone grafts may be necessary for several reasons. The first is prior to dental implant surgery. A periodontist cannot place dental implants into bone that lacks proper density. Bone grafting ensures the site is prepped to receive the implants and keep them stabilized. Many patients who are not immediate candidates for single or multiple dental implants can improve their candidacy through bone grafting in Cherry Hill, NJ.
In other cases, patients may need a ridge augmentation, another kind of bone grafting treatment. When a missing tooth is not replaced, bone begins to recede and may cause a patient's face to appear sunken-in. By adding bone material to areas of bone resorption and atrophy, the patient can achieve a fuller, more youthful appearance along with improved oral health. Some patients receive ridge augmentations from their periodontist after tooth extractions to minimize the effects of bone resorption.
Well-known by peers as colleagues, educators, and published authors on a variety of topics, both periodontists have decades of experience and stay at the leading edge of modern periodontal care. Patients interested in speaking with either of these periodontists about bone grafting in Cherry Hill, NJ, may contact Drs. Canal and Calem at 609-953-3700 for their Medford, NJ office location or 856-439-1200 for the Moorestown, NJ practice.
