Although we do it exceptionally well, cosmetic dentistry isn’t all we offer at Cosmetic Dental Associates. San Antonio dentist Dr. John A. Moore, Jr. is also skilled in using oral surgery to improve our patients’ health.
Bone loss often occurs after tooth loss. A bone graft is commonly performed when your jawbone is not substantial enough to support a dental implant. The graft will stimulate new bone growth.
When your gums recede, they expose the roots of your teeth and increase risk of infection, which can lead to tooth loss and cause chronic bad breath. A gum graft is similar to a bone graft and is done when you need to build up your gum tissue. Gum recession is often treated using a gum graft.
Your gums are naturally a certain height and width. Following tooth extraction or to prepare your mouth for a dental implant, your dentist might suggest a ridge augmentation to build back up the shape of your gum and bone around your empty socket.
It’s natural to choose an award-winning dentist like Dr. Moore for your oral surgery procedure. His expertise in cosmetic dentistry and tooth replacement means that he’ll be able to see your teeth through every stage of renewing your smile.
