What Is Bone Grafting?
Your jawbone's strength is key to your general oral health. If your jawbone is weakened from missing teeth or physical trauma, you may require a bone graft so your jaw can securely hold both dental implants and your natural teeth. Bone grafting helps to strengthen and rebuild your jawbone so it's healthy enough to support a dental implant. At Maison BE, dental bone graft surgery is performed to rebuild volume and thickness in your jaw in order to replace weak or missing teeth. Our experienced dentists, Dr. Ellen Katz and Dr. Bridget Glazarov, are highly skilled in performing bone grafting surgery in New York, NY. Schedule an appointment with us to learn more.
How Does Bone Grafting Work?
A bone graft builds up the jaw and prepares you for a dental implant; however, you'll need to be willing to commit time to the process. Some procedures may take several months to complete, but you will get a stronger, healthier jawbone that will support your dental implant, as well as your natural teeth. Your bone graft may be taken from one area of your body, such as the shin, hip, or chin (called an autograft). Once you have been given sedation and local anesthesia, your dentist will prepare the areas being treated and make an incision in the gums to expose the bone. The graft will be attached to your bone along with collagen and proteins that stimulate growth. The gums will be closed with sutures and the area will be cleaned. Over the next six or more months, the graft will bond with your jawbone (osseointegration). Within this time, it is critical to have a good oral care routine with flossing and brushing along with any additional products recommended by your dentist.
Maison BE Dental Studio Reviews
The cleanliness of the office and the professionalism of the dental team made me feel very comfortable at my appointment and well taken care of. Thank you very much to Dr. Katz and her wonderful team.
Dr. Katz is amazing!!!! No one likes to go to the dentist and now I love it. She is friendly, gentle, sympathetic, and does excellent dentistry. I have sent my coworkers and they are just as happy.
Dr. Katz is a well-educated and experienced dentist with an excellent bedside manner and a very gentle touch. Highly recommend!
Seeing Dr. Katz and her caring staff makes going to the dentist almost palatable 🤪. Dr. Katz is kind, compassionate, and a very good dentist. She’s not going for the money grab and is conservative in her treatment. Would highly recommend this practice.
I had Invisalign done by Dr. Katz and the results are next to magnificent! In 6 months' time, I have absolutely straight teeth and a smile I am proud of! I couldn’t have done it without the amazing dedication of Dr. Katz!
