Gum Disease is the number one reason for tooth loss in adults and is the silent destroyer of bone around your teeth. It often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone; that’s when teeth become loose and start moving. In many situations we now have the ability to grow bone where it has been lost around teeth. New materials also give us a chance to more effectively restore esthetic appearance and function.
Dr. Wolf will recommend the most predictable procedure and bone graft material for your case. He also uses biologically active gels and growth factors to stimulate healthy bone growth helping your body naturally re-grow lost bone. That has helped us save certain teeth that would otherwise have been lost.
