Periodontal disease affects many people around the world. It is a gum disease that can cause extreme decay in the bone tissue and the teeth itself.
Bone grafting or augmentation is the act of replacing decayed or missing bone with synthetic bone in the jaw or gum line. This gives the dentist a place to put an implant. In periodontal disease, bone grafting can reduce the loss of bone density, resulting in a better looking and healthier smile.
