Dental bone grafting is a specialized procedure offered to patients who need to rebuild or strengthen their jawbone. This procedure is essential for those considering dental implants who lack sufficient bone structure due to periodontal disease, tooth loss, or injury. Our expert dental surgeons use advanced techniques to graft bone material from the patient's body, or more commonly, from a biocompatible synthetic substitute onto the deficient jawbone area.
A dental bone graft is a surgical procedure that rebuilds lost bone tissue in the jaw. This procedure is often necessary before placing dental implants or other restorative treatments.
In order for dental implants to be successful, a minimum amount of bone is required to keep the implants anchored in place. There are four main types of bone grafts, each using different materials:
At Orange Dental Partners, we are committed to restoring both the functionality and aesthetics of your smile through state-of-the-art dental procedures like bone grafting methods:
After a tooth is extracted, the space that was previously occupied by the tooth is called the socket. Placing a bone graft in the socket following an extraction is a critical step in socket preservation. This procedure helps preserve the existing bone after tooth extraction and helps to generate new healthy bone and increase the success of implant placement.
Many times, if teeth have been missing for a number of years, the jawbone will gradually become thinner. In order to place implants, the bone width and height must be increased. This procedure increases the width and height of the jawbone to provide a strong foundation for dental implants.
When placing upper molar implants, it is important to ensure that the implant does not interfere with the sinus, which sits just above the teeth. It may be necessary to create more space for the implants in the upper molar area. The sinus lift procedure elevates the sinus floor to create sufficient space for dental implants in the upper jaw.
This procedure repairs bone loss around teeth caused by gum disease.
Dental bone grafting is a transformative procedure that significantly enhances oral health and quality of life. This treatment achieves several key benefits:
Prepares for Dental Implants: Creates a solid foundation for dental implants, enabling those with bone loss to be eligible for implants.
Prevents Bone Loss: Helps maintain jawbone integrity after tooth loss, preventing the bone deterioration that can occur over time.
Improves Facial Structure: Supports facial muscles and skin, helping preserve or restore the face's natural contour.
Enhances Oral Function: Stabilizing the jawbone improves the ability to speak and eat comfortably.
Boosts Confidence: Contributes to a healthier and more aesthetic smile, enhancing overall self-esteem.
Long-term Oral Health: Promotes better oral health by supporting adjacent teeth and preventing future dental complications.
Receiving a dental bone graft can be life-changing, offering functional and aesthetic improvements that contribute to a healthier, more confident lifestyle.
A dental bone graft becomes necessary in several scenarios, primarily focused on preparing the jawbone for future dental work or addressing existing bone loss:
Insufficient Bone for Dental Implants: If there's not enough jawbone to support dental implants due to bone resorption after tooth loss.
Periodontal Disease: Advanced gum disease can lead to bone deterioration, necessitating a graft for structural support.
Tooth Loss: A bone graft can prevent the jawbone's natural resorption process following tooth extraction or loss.
Trauma or Infection: Injuries or infections that have damaged or eroded the jawbone.
There are few contraindications, but certain conditions may affect eligibility:
A thorough evaluation by a dental professional is essential to determine the need for a bone graft, considering the patient's overall health and specific dental issues.

Dental bone grafts are a standard and safe procedure dentists and oral surgeons perform worldwide. As implant placement has become more common, bone grafting has become equally common as it is often a necessary procedure to facilitate implant placement.
You will receive specific instructions on your diet after your bone graft. Typically, it's recommended to eat soft foods for a few days after the procedure.
We prioritize patient comfort and utilize various pain management techniques to ensure your procedure is painless. Bone grafting is not a painful process.
