MICHAEL MAZAHERI, DDS
There are many long term complications associated with the loss of a tooth. The most significant complication is bone loss due to lack of function in the absence of tooth roots (known as atrophy). After a tooth is lost bone starts to resorb and the loss of bone slowly increases over time and is significantly evident in short amount of time. The atrophy of bone over time leaves behind bone that may be of poor quality and lack of quantity needed for dental implant placement. It is for these reasons that we often choose to place bone grafts following dental extractions in Gilbert AZ in order to preserve the bone from further loss. Today, we are able to grow bone where needed with the use of grafts and other regeneration methods.
Dr. Michael Mazaheri uses different types of bone grafts following dental extractions or implant placement.:
