Every healthy, happy, confident smile has a healthy jawbone as its foundation. Without it you can lose teeth and your distinctive facial appearance. Your face may look sunken and prematurely aged. You also may not be able to eat many types of foods. If you are experiencing jawbone recession due to tooth loss or gum disease, board-certified periodontist Dr. Clarke Filippi can recapture that cornerstone of your smile. With three-years of specialized periodontal education since dental school and training from the acclaimed Pikos Institute, he is the professional to trust for bone grafting in Modesto, CA.
With bone grafting we place a small quantity of bone material—from your own body or from other sources—in the recessed bone area. Over time the bone graft will gradually fuse with the healthy jawbone, rebuilding your bone volume and strength. With these reestablished, your jaw will be able to support dental implants —and you will be able to truly enjoy life again with a youthful, confident smile. From tooth extractions to bone grafting to implants themselves, Central Valley Periodontics & Implants is your home for comprehensive, convenient implant care.
