A bone graft is a procedure in which bone is taken and placed in an area that needs bone. The classic example is where a patient has a tooth extracted and wants to have an implant placed, and needs bone in the area to support the implant. In this case, the tooth is extracted, and the bone graft is placed. And then, a few months, later the implant can often be placed. Our preferred approach for bone grafts is the Osteogen Plus system.
Yes. Very safe. There are a number of options when it comes to the source of a bone graft, including from donor bone or from animal bone. Each clinical situation is different, and we will discuss the best approach with you.
It depends. If you are considering the possibility of having an implant in the future, then we do recommend that you have a bone graft placed. And even if you elect not to have an implant, and in the future replace the missing teeth with a removable partial denture, the extra bone will certainly help to provide support for the prosthesis. Once again, we’ll discuss the treatment plan with you and we will work with you to decide if a bone graft is the appropriate treatment for you.Get in Touch
My wife and I had our first cleanings with Dallas Dental today and were extremely pleased with the consideration of Dr. McMiller, staff and Niki, who did our cleanings. No discomfort whatsoever and we both have sensitive spots in our mouths. Best cleanings ever. Very caring office.
I've never liked going to the dentist, the idea of needles in my mouth frightened me. My visit today was absolutely amazing, my hygienist (Nikki) made me feel at ease. When the Doctor came in to numb me, I didn't really feel a thing. I will continue to go there and I'm making my daughter an appointment as well.
Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on a same day appointment and called to check up a few hours later. I highly recommend using this dentist office. It will not be a dreaded experience.
I do not do well with people dealing with my mouth. I have never met a group so sensitive to my comfort while still doing an amazing job. No, most of the things that must be done at a dental office are not going to be fun, but this group makes it so much easier. I will recommend them to anyone! Thank you so much.
