The strength of your jawbone is very important to your general dental health. If your jawbone is weakened from missing teeth or physical trauma, you may need a bone graft so your jaw can securely fit both your natural teeth and dental implants. Bone grafting helps to reinforce and rebuild your jawbone until it is dense enough to hold a dental implant. At East Village Dental Center, bone grafting is offered to prepare your jaw for subsequent dental implant surgery to replace missing or weak teeth. Schedule an appointment with one of our periodontal dentists at our office in New York, NY to get more information on bone graft surgery.

Your jawbone may be weak if you have some oral conditions, like gum disease, or if you have experienced physical trauma to your mouth. The jawbone may begin to atrophy (waste away) if a tooth is missing and it wasn't replaced with removable dentures or a bridge. 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. Bone grafting may take several months to complete — in the end, though, you will have a stronger, healthier jawbone that will support not only your dental implant but also your natural teeth for better overall oral health.

The steps of bone grafting surgery will depend on where the graft comes from and the amount of grafting being done.

  • Autograft: The donor bone may be taken from another bone in your body, such as your hip, chin, or shin.
  • Allograft: An allograft uses bone harvested from another person.
  • Xenograft: A xenograft bone graft is taken from an animal, generally a cow.
  • Alloplast: This is a synthetic bone graft.

In your consultation, we will discuss your grafting options and help you determine the best choice for your particular needs.

Once the graft is ready to be placed, we will use local anesthesia to numb the treatment area and place an incision in the gums to expose the jawbone. We will carefully pull your gum away from the bone to expose the area being grafted. The graft will be attached to the jawbone with collagen and proteins that encourage the graft to attach and grow. The gum tissue will be closed with sutures, and your mouth will be cleaned. We are proud to use state-of-the-art technologies at our New York City office to make this process as simple and seamless as possible.

Over the following 6 – 9 months, the graft will bond with your jaw, a process known as osseointegration. During this timeframe, it's important to maintain a good oral care routine with brushing and flossing, along with utilizing any products suggested by our team. We may write a prescription for antibiotics or pain medication to help ease any discomfort and inflammation you experience during your recovery. You may need to make additional appointments at East Village Dental Center for progress checks and to determine when your mouth is ready for a dental implant — we will go over this during your consultation.
