Bone Grafting

Don’t Let Bone Loss Age You

Recapture a Strong Smile Foundation

When you lose teeth, your jawbone loses its primary function and can begin to deteriorate. You end up with reduced dental function and a smile that looks sunken-in. Eventually, you’ll look like an older version of someone else. Dental implants are the solution to missing teeth. Bone grafting provides the reinforcement dental implants need to withstand the powerful chewing forces that are exerted on the jawbone. Weak bone that cannot support a dental implant is more likely to result in a failed surgery. To reduce this risk and restore the foundation of your smile, our team offers bone grafting in Flower Mound and Denton, TX.

The Texas Center for Oral Surgery and Dental Implants team includes two board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons who specialize in rebuilding smiles from the foundation up. With bone grafting we can make you a candidate for dental implants, which will allow you to eat, speak, and smile without any discomfort. Our years of post-dental school training enable us to provide comprehensive dental implant care, from placement itself to all the treatments that prepare you to qualify for implants. We’re also medical doctors qualified to handle complex, medically compromised cases. We’ll put a healthy smile back on your face—and the spring back in your step.

Rebuilding Your Jawbone

We perform dental bone graft surgery, or grafting, in our state-of-the-art surgical facility while you’re deeply sedated. We can transplant a small piece of bone from one part of your jaw to the deficient area but most often we use bone harvested from a human donor or bovine source. We expose the bone through a small opening in the gum tissue and place the supplemental bone. We then suture the gum tissue together and allow the surgical site to heal before placing any implants.

The healing phase can vary depending on the extent and type of grafting. Some minor bone grafts can be performed at the same time as the implant placement. Our team prefers options that shorten your overall course of treatment so you can get back to smiling and eating without restrictions as quickly as possible!

Dental Bone Grafting Services

We offer several specialized bone grafting procedures to help you regain a strong, healthy smile.

Ridge Augmentation / Ridge Preservation

When your jawbone decays it loses its characteristic, natural appearance. During ridge augmentation / preservation we use bone grafting material to reshape and reconstruct the jawbone, restoring your unique facial esthetics and composition to their earlier, healthier state.

Sinus Lift

When you suffer bone loss in your upper jaw (maxilla), you can experience an added complication not found in your lower jaw (mandible). Your maxilla helps support your sinus cavities. When its supporting bone recedes the sinus cavity can collapse. Our team can restore your sinus to its correct position with a sinus lift. This is where we carefully elevate the sinus floor and place bone grafting material underneath.

Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR)

Bone (hard tissue) and gums (soft tissue) heal at different rates after surgery. When neighboring hard and soft tissues are healing at the same time, they can interfere with each other’s progress. We use a biocompatible mesh as a protective barrier between the two to ease healing after grafting.
