Well what we do here at North Oaks Dental, is when we pull a tooth out, we fill that hole with bone so that your jaw doesn't shrink down. Your bone gets preserved, and you can get a dental implant. Or we extract your tooth and put the implant in immediately before you start losing some bone. Sometimes, you had your tooth extracted and didn't get the bone graft at the time of a removal of the tooth, and now you need to build your bone up. So we've got great techniques to build your bone up, so you can get a dental implant, and get you back to chewing or smiling, and restore your mouth back to normal.
- Build up your bone structure
- Cause minimal discomfort
- Create a stable site for dental implants
- Require no more than a suture or two

Don’t Worry About Bone Grafting at North Oaks Dental
A bone grafting procedure is surprisingly simple when performed by an expert. Our dentist simply places material designed to spur growth at the tooth extraction site or other area where more bone is needed. Typically no more than a suture or two is used to keep the material in place. Then your body’s own regenerative powers take over to create new bone.
You’ll check in with us while your mouth heals so our dentists can determine when you’re ready for implant placement. You can usually receive implants within a few months.
Before your procedure, our dentists will review other options with you. If mini dental implants will support your replacement teeth, you may not need bone grafting.
Stay Comfortable During a Bone Graft
As with any procedure in our Royal Oak, MI office, we want to ensure you remain comfortable. Our dentists explain what they are doing every step of the way so you know exactly what to expect. They also take the time to answer any questions you might have. You can use headphones to listen to Pandora Internet Radio while they work. If you want dental sedation, ask about it at your consultation. We offer three types: nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), oral sedation, and IV sedation.
