Rebuilding Jaw Volume After Bone Loss

Jaw bone loss can occur for many reasons, though the most common are due to tooth loss, oral trauma, and gum disease. This can harm facial aesthetics and increase the risk of teeth becoming loose or being lost, if enough of the bone recedes. In the case of tooth loss, the jaw bone will continue to resorb, harming the stability of the surrounding teeth and causing the facial features to shrink inward. Extensive loss of jaw bone volume may also eliminate dental implants as a restorative option. Bone grafting successfully restores this lost bone in the jaw to rebuild proper volume, height, and strength to the area. Restoring lost bone is the first step toward repairing your smile. With proper bone volume, you can replace any number of missing teeth and enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile once again!

Comprehensive Bone Grafting Services

The bone grafting procedure involves taking bone material from the patient’s body or a donor source and securing it to the site in need of rebuilding. Once covered with a protective membrane, the gums are sutured in place and the area is allowed to heal and fuse together. This establishes a strong foundation if you choose dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth. Depending on where the bone loss has occurred, or the extent of the loss, we may recommend a sinus lift or ridge augmentation. A sinus lift adds bone grafting material underneath the sinus cavity in the upper back portion of the jaw to build up enough bone height to accommodate a dental implant. A ridge augmentation preserves the bone after a tooth extraction to ensure less bone is resorbed and the ridge height remains intact.

The benefits of bone grafting include:

  • Prevents further bone loss
  • Preserves the jaw bone ridge
  • Prevents surrounding teeth from shifting
  • Enables dental implant placement

I have been going here for over 9 years. I love the staff. From Dr. Myers to the front office, they are all top notch. I have never waited more than 5 minutes to get back in a room for what ever procedure I am having. I would recommend them to anyone.

Lauree W.

Best dentist ever! Dr. Myers and his staff are amazing. I have had dental challenges in the past and have been judged by other dentists. I never feel judged when I go to the dentist now. Dr. Myers also gives the least painful numbing shots that I’ve ever had. Highly recommend!

Chris G.

Dr meyer abd his staff have been an amazing group for the 13 years I have been there. Today specifically I was in an extreme amount of pain and they made immediate accommodations for me , and all though the procedure was not present they were compassionate , kind , and informative throughout the process. I love these people and all they have done for me!

Thomas J.

Very pleasant experience. Very kind, caring and professional. I had mixed results from my whitening. Looks like some of the bleach stuck better and therefore whitened better. They took some x rays and suggested a crown which I may look into soon. We'll see how the money flow is. But I will definitely look to them for future needs.

Michael S.

I am so glad I went to cosmetic dentistry for my procedure. Dan Myers and staff made me feel comfortable. For me, the procedure was a bit stressful but I knew I was in good hands. I felt like it would never end. Yet Dan Myers never lost patients. I have been to other dentists but there is no other dentist I would rather have treating me.

Murray L.

Dr. Dan and his staff are friendly, professional, and efficient. I rarely spend time in the waiting room. I'm usually greeted by first name as soon as I walk in the door and a dental chair is already waiting for me. No high pressure sales here, just a straight-shooter dentist and a rock star team. Highly recommended.
