Dr. Harris at Anthem Oral Surgery specializes in advanced bone grafting to correct jaw bone loss, supporting implants and improving facial structure and oral health.

What Is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that involves transferring bone tissue to increase the volume and density of the jawbone. This process is often necessary for patients who have experienced bone loss due to tooth extraction, gum disease, or injury. By restoring the bone structure, Dr. Harris can create a suitable environment for dental implants and other restorative procedures.

Why Is Bone Grafting Important?

  • Supports Dental Implant Success: Adequate bone density is crucial for the stability and longevity of dental implants.
  • Prevents Further Bone Loss: Grafting stimulates bone growth, helping to maintain facial structure and prevent the collapse of surrounding tissues.
  • Improves Aesthetic Outcomes: A healthy jawbone ensures that dental restorations look and feel natural, enhancing the patient’s smile and confidence.

Types of Bone Grafts

Depending on the individual’s needs, Dr. Harris may utilize various types of bone grafts, including autografts (bone sourced from the patient’s body), allografts (donor bone), and synthetic materials. Each option has its advantages, and Dr. Harris will recommend the most suitable type based on your specific condition and goals.

The Bone Grafting Procedure

The procedure begins with a detailed assessment of your oral health and jawbone condition. During the surgery, Dr. Harris places the chosen graft material into the area where bone is missing. Over time, this graft will integrate with the surrounding bone tissue, creating a stronger and more voluminous jawbone.

Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery from bone grafting varies depending on the extent of the surgery and the individual’s overall health. Dr. Harris and our team will provide comprehensive aftercare instructions and support to ensure a smooth and effective healing process. Follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your progress and plan the next steps in your oral health journey.

Bone grafting is more than just a preparatory step for dental implants—it’s a life-changing procedure that restores function and aesthetics to your smile.
