Bone Grafting

If you have a missing tooth that has never been replaced, you may be at risk of bone loss or deterioration. Pacific Dental Group wants to help you restore your oral function and smile. We use the latest techniques in bone grafting to correct this situation.

Your jawbone can deteriorate over time. This section of the jawbone then becomes unsuitable for any dental implants. Today's technology allows dentists the opportunity to graft bone where needed to restore the functionality and appearance of your smile.

The entire bone grafting procedure usually takes months to complete. Bone is harvested from your jaw, hip or tibia and inserted into the affected spot. The new bone fuses with the existing jawbone. Adding a bone graft will help support and anchor any dental implant. During surgery, the dentist will numb the area using a local anesthetic. A small incision is made to prepare the site for the anchoring of the new bone. Sometimes, a particular membrane, or artificial skin, may be used. The layer dissolves under the gum and protects the bone graft, protects against bacteria, and encourages bone renewal. The doctor then closes the incision with stitches and allows time for healing. Our staff will provide you with instructions to help in the healing process. Once the site has fully healed, you're ready for dental implants.

Our Happy Patients

"I am thrilled to have found such a great dentist in Los Angeles. Several people at my work use this dental practice and highly recommended it. When I relocated here a few months ago I knew that I would be needing a crown on one of my lower back teeth and I was putting it off because that part of the jaw is so sensitive. Dr. Garcia was amazing and had such a precise and gentle touch that I hardly notice I was getting a shot. I love the friendly staff and feel safe and welcome each time I visit. The free teeth whitening club is a great client goodwill gift and I'm proudly showing off my pearly white chompers!"

"It's weird to say I loved getting the screws put to my teeth, but as far as dentists go, these guys are some of the best I've ever been to. Friendly staff as well. I recommend going to them if you're in the area and looking for some dental health care goodness."
