Bone Grafting

Major & Minor Bone Grafting

Missing teeth over a period of time can cause your jaw bone to atrophy, or resorb. This often results in poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for the placement of dental implants as well as long term shifting of remaining teeth and changes to facial structure. Most patients, in these situations, are not candidates for dental implants.

Fortunately, today we have the ability to grow bone where it is needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, but it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.

Major Bone Grafting

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease, or injuries. The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw, hip or tibia (below the knee). Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw. In addition, special membranes may be utilized that dissolve under the gum to protect the bone graft, as well as encourage bone regeneration. This is called guided bone regeneration, or guided tissue regeneration.

Major bone grafts are typically performed to repair defects of the jaws. These defects may arise as a result of traumatic injuries, tumor surgery, or congenital defects. Large defects are repaired using the patient’s own bone. This bone is harvested from a number of different areas depending on the size needed. The skull (cranium), hip (iliac crest), and lateral knee (tibia), are common donor sites. These procedures are routinely performed in an operating room and require a hospital stay.

Patient Review

Having yet another Medical Professional who understands the needs of those with Autism is fantastic! The staff here totally gets it and they are very accommodating and comforting to both the child and the family member with them. They took the time to hear what we had to say, listened to our concerns regarding the procedure, set up a plan and really made us feel welcome and comfortable.

Patient Review

Brenna had two extractions and a bone graft. She had some un-predicted issues after her surgery. Everyone was very attentive to her needs and got her right into the office on a couple occasions when she was in pain. I cannot thank everyone enough for their kindness and understanding. Both doctors saw her at some point and both were wonderful. The office staff greeted her and tried to comfort her. Such a great professional office - answered all her questions and directed all questions to her and not me (her Mom). We just love everyone!

My 6 yr old son had procedure completed at this practice by Dr. Bryan. It went off without a hitch and he was very comfortable here. Dr. Bryan made several calls after the procedure to check on him. Great experience. Highly recommend this practice.
