Improve Your Oral Health With Bone Grafts in Royal Oak, MI

One of the requirements for dental implants is a jawbone strong enough to support them. If you lack the necessary bone density, you may still have options. One of them is a bone graft. Your dentist performs Royal Oak bone grafts with a minimum of fuss or discomfort. Your procedure will:

  • Build up your bone structure
  • Cause minimal discomfort
  • Create a stable site for dental implants
  • Allow you to enjoy all the benefits of implants

Call North Oaks Dental at 248-712-1522 to talk to Dr. Alvin Daboul or one of our other doctors about this simple procedure.

Stay Comfortable During Your Bone Graft

Before your procedure, your dentist will review other options with you. If mini dental implants will support your replacement teeth, you may not need bone grafting. If you do need a graft, the procedure is surprisingly simple when performed by an expert:

  • Your 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.
  • Your body’s own regenerative powers then take over to create new bone.
  • You’ll check in with us while your mouth heals so your dentist can determine when you’re ready for implant placement. You can usually receive implants within a few months.

As with any procedure in our office, we want to ensure you remain comfortable. Your dentist will explain what they are doing so you know exactly what to expect. They also take the time to answer any questions. 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 several types: laughing gas, oral sedation, and IV sedation.

Call North Oaks Dental at 248-712-1522 to see if you need Royal Oaks bone grafts before getting dental implants. You can also make an appointment online. We offer free second opinions.

Commonly Asked Questions About Bone Grafts

What is a bone graft?

A bone graft strengthens your jawbone after you have lost teeth. Bone loss is a consequence of tooth loss since the tooth is no longer there to stimulate the bone underneath it. We’ll insert a special material in the socket and cover it to protect the area. Over time, the material will actually become part of your bone as it stimulates new growth. Because your bone is stronger, you can become a candidate for dental implants.

Are bone grafts necessary?

We might suggest a bone graft after you have lost teeth to maintain the bone and ensure you have sufficient bone to sustain replacement teeth. You can lose approximately two-thirds of your bone within a few months of an extraction. The longer you wait to replace a tooth, the more bone loss you’ll experience. Your dentist can review whether a bone graft is appropriate for you at your consultation.

Are bone grafts painful?

Bone grafts are performed with the utmost care at our office. Our team has many years of training and experience, as well as advanced technology to help make such procedures more precise and comfortable.
