Bone Grafting, Naperville IL
Removal of teeth is sometimes necessary because of pain, infection, bone loss or fracture of the tooth. The bone that holds the tooth in place (the socket) is often damaged by disease and/or infection resulting in deformity of the jaw after the tooth is extracted. In addition, when teeth are extracted, the surrounding bone and gums can shrink and recede very quickly after the extraction resulting in unsightly defects and collapse of the lips, and cheeks.
Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies or is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants. In these situations, most patients are not candidates for placement of dental implants.
Today, we have the ability to grow bone where needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial
I cannot say enough kind words to describe how grateful we were to Dr Scherer and his wonderful staff for the care they gave my son. We live in Charlotte NC and were in Naperville visiting family for Easter, while iceskating my 14 yr old son fell and knocked his front teeth out. Dr Scherer and the entire staff treated us as if we were family. They went over and above to take care of a patient who was not even theirs. Once we returned back to Charlotte and my son followed up with our orthodontist and oral surgeon, both practices raved at were impressed with Dr Scherers work. Thank you to Dr Scherer, Wheaton oral Surgery and their entire staff.
