Bone Grafting in Atascocita, TX

The health of your jawbone plays an essential role in maintaining your oral health. When a jawbone is weakened from physical trauma or missing teeth, you may need bone grafting so your jaw can securely hold both dental implants and your natural teeth. A bone graft helps to augment and build up your jawbone until it's healthy enough to hold an implant. At Aesthetic Dentistry Associates, this surgery prepares your jaw before dental implant surgery to replace weak or missing teeth. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Umansky at our world-class facility in Atascocita, TX to learn more about bone graft surgery.

The steps of your bone grafting procedure will depend on the source of the graft and the amount of grafting needed. You may have bone removed from another bone in your body, such as the shin, hip, or chin, which is an autograft. An autograft may be performed in our office with local anesthesia and sedation or at an accredited surgical facility using general anesthesia. Additional graft methods include an allograft that takes the bone graft from another human. A xenograft bone graft is taken from an animal, usually a cow. Another option is a synthetic bone graft known as an alloplast. During your consultation, Dr. Umansky will explain your options for bone grafts and help you select the best plan for your needs.

When the selected graft is ready, Dr. Umansky will use local anesthesia to numb the areas being treated and make an incision through the gums to reveal the bone. Your graft will be attached to your jawbone with proteins and collagen that stimulate growth in the graft. The incision will be sutured closed, and the mouth will be cleaned.

Bone grafting is not just a foundation for further dental work; it's a vital step toward restoring oral health and confidence. This procedure has become a cornerstone for individuals experiencing jawbone deterioration, offering a path to improved dental function and aesthetic appeal. Bone grafting offers several advantages, such as:

  • Prevents Further Damage: By reinforcing the jawbone, bone grafting can prevent additional damage to both the jaw and adjacent teeth, protecting against further oral health complications.
  • Stable Foundation for Restorations: Bone grafting offers a solid and stable base for various tooth restorations, including dentures, crowns, and bridges, enhancing their fit and function.
  • Improves Dental Health: The procedure plays a crucial role in the overall improvement of dental health by providing the necessary support for natural teeth and any restorative work.
  • Reduces Jawbone Resorption: Bone grafting helps to lessen the rate of jawbone resorption and decay, maintaining the strength and integrity of the jawbone over time.
  • Foundation for Dental Implants: For clients considering dental implants, bone grafting offers the sturdy base needed for implant placement, increasing the chances of a successful and lasting implant.
  • Enhances Facial Aesthetics: A healthy jawbone structure contributes to a more youthful and natural-looking facial appearance, helping to avoid the sunken look that often accompanies significant bone loss.
  • Preserves Facial Structure: Beyond aesthetics, bone grafting works to maintain the natural contour of the face, preventing the altered facial structure that can result from jawbone deterioration.
