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.

To see if you need bone grafting before getting dental implants, call 248-712-1522. We offer free second opinions.
