Bone Grafting

Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies or is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants. In these situations, most patients are not candidates for placement of dental implants.
Today, we have the ability to grow bone where needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and esthetic 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 and protect the bone graft and 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 sites depending on the size of the defect. 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.

Dr. Joe is the best he’s been taking care of me and my friends for years when i call he is always there thanks Dr. Joe I work in the medical field and your the only one i would recommend to anyone only because you have done so much work on me and your great thanks for everything ?

My bottom wisdom teeth were at that time they needed to be removed due to the pain it was causing my jaw. I kept putting it off because of my previous bad experience. I came to see Dr. Doctora nervous and preparing myself for two weeks of down time but I had a great experience with him. There was no stitching and no down time. I was back to eating in less than 3 days. He explained everything in detail and guided me patiently. His staff made me feel welcomed and comfortable. His professionalism and customer service has changed my perspective on oral surgery.

Had my 4 wisdom teeth pulled out today for the 1st time with Dr. Doctora and I felt absolutely no pain during the surgery. I feel great at home now and his staff was so kind at explaining the procedure to me!
