Bone Grafting - Leading Edge Oral Surgery
Create The Ideal Environment For Lasting Implant Results
Have you been told you are not a candidate for dental implants because you don’t have enough bone?
Bone loss in the jaw impacts your oral function, facial shape and smile, and candidacy for receiving dental implants. With advanced bone grafting techniques, our skilled oral surgeons stabilize these areas by rebuilding and regrowing bone in the jaw. You may be a candidate for bone grafting if you have lost bone to advanced gum disease, trauma or injury, or chronic tooth loss, and you wish to replace failing or missing teeth with dental implants. The team of experts at Leading Edge Oral Surgery offers a unique approach to stabilizing your smile and oral health through advanced bone grafting techniques.
Specialized Bone Grafting Care from a Team of Experts
Our board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons proudly offer the highest standard of minor and major bone grafting care for your oral health and smile. We have advanced training and expertise in preparing the jaw for dental implant success, no matter the cause of bone loss.
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 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.
Advanced Bone Grafting Procedures
Bone grafting is accomplished by using bone tissue samples from your own mouth or another safe, biocompatible donor source. We perform several bone grafting procedures designed to stabilize and replenish lost bone in various areas within the mouth.
We use this technique to restore the height and width of bone lost in the jaw. This recreates natural contour in the arch and increases available bone for implant support.
Ridge Preservation (aka Socket Preservation)
Following a tooth extraction, ridge preservation, or socket preservation, adds bone grafting material directly to hollowed-out tooth sockets, preventing the bone from collapsing and preserving the site for future implant placement.
Performed to enable implant placement in upper premolar and molar areas, a sinus lift gently elevates the floor of the maxillary sinus cavity. Bone grafting material is then added to or beneath the sinus floor, increasing the height of bone necessary for implant placement.
Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR)
Our surgeons use GTR, a biocompatible membrane placed within treatment sites, to encourage the expedited regrowth of gum and bone tissues in bone grafting areas.
Bone Morphogenic Proteins (BMP)
BMP utilizes the body’s regenerative properties to stimulate natural bone formation within bone grafting sites.
Plasma Rich Growth Factors (PRGF)
PRGF uses blood platelets harvested from your own body to encourage faster healing and regeneration of gum and bone tissues in bone grafting areas
