Dental Bone Graft

Rebuild your smile's foundation with expert dental bone grafting.

Restore Your Jaw

Dental bone grafting is a procedure that replaces lost bone in your jaw, providing a solid foundation for dental implants or other restorative treatments. This treatment is often necessary when bone loss has occurred due to periodontal disease, trauma, or tooth loss. Our skilled Family Dentistry of Lakewood team provides effective and comfortable bone grafting procedures to help fix your jaw and restore your smile.

  • When is a dental bone graft necessary?

    A dental bone graft is needed when there is insufficient bone in the jaw to support dental implants or other restorative treatments. This can occur due to periodontal disease, trauma, tooth loss, or congenital conditions. Bone grafting ensures enough bone to provide a stable foundation for future dental work.

  • What materials are used in dental bone grafting?

    Dental bone grafting materials can include autografts (bone taken from another part of the patient’s body), allografts (donor bone), xenografts (animal bone), and synthetic materials. These materials are biocompatible and promote new bone growth in the treated area.

  • What is the dental bone grafting procedure like?

    The procedure typically involves numbing the area with local anesthesia, making a small incision in the gum, and placing the grafting material in the area of bone loss. The graft is then secured, and the incision is closed. Over time, the graft material integrates with the existing bone, encouraging new bone growth and strengthening the jaw.
