Bone Grafting: Your Solution to Lost Bone

When someone has lost jaw bone volume, either due to tooth loss, oral trauma or periodontal disease, they may experience a change in several aspects of their oral health. Bone loss can produce a “sunken in” facial appearance, cause teeth to shift, create an uneven appearance of the jaw and restrict the ability to have dental implants placed. At Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates, we provide bone grafting treatment to restore the lost volume in your jaw laying the groundwork for healthy dental implant restorations.  Our oral surgeons are specialists at rebuilding lost bone, even in extreme circumstances. As doctors with over 100 years of cumulative experience, we are able to handle any bone grafting situation no matter how serious it may be.

Our Advanced Bone Grafting Procedures

Bone grafting involves placing a bone material, either taken from you or a donor source, at the site of recession, which will fuse to existing bone to form a solid, even foundation. We ensure bone grafting success by utilizing advanced guided tissue regeneration (GTR) techniques when performing bone grafts to improve the healing time and ensure your new bone is strong. For those worried about discomfort, our team is certified to offer sedation for a calming, pain-free bone grafting experience. These technologies and techniques give our patients an improved bone grafting experience, allowing them to enjoy a healthier mouth quickly

Precise Sinus Lift Surgery

Patients who are missing teeth in their upper molar area may have inadequate bone to support dental implants due to the sinus cavity residing just above these teeth. We can perform sinus lift bone grafting surgery to access this location. During a sinus lift, we will gently raise the sinus membrane and add in bone grafting material to create adequate volume for dental implant placement. This is a very delicate and complex procedure, which is frequently performed by our experienced oral surgeons to ensure successful results and no damage to the sinus membrane.

Restoring the Jaw Line

When bone volume has been lost in the jaw, it can create an uneven gum line that not only looks unattractive in your smile, but may cause teeth to shift and limits the placement of dental implants. Bone grafting can even out a receded gum line and preserve your jaw structure. When a tooth is extracted it leaves behind an empty area in the jaw, which can quickly deteriorate and affect the jaw ridge. We perform socket preservation to restore bone where the tooth once was and prepare for dental implant replacement. Socket preservation bone grafting can often be performed the same day as tooth extraction to cut down on treatment times and appointments. In cases where trauma has occurred, we can use our bone grafting techniques to rebuild damaged bone and create an attractive, smooth jawline again.
