Dental Bone Grafting

Many patients who want to have dental implants have bone loss. It makes bonding dental implants with your jawbone — a process known as Osseointegration.

We understand the importance of a strong and healthy foundation for your dental health at Lafayette Dental Group. Our Dental Bone Grafting services are designed to restore and augment your jawbone. We always ensure that you have the optimal support for dental implants and other restorative procedures. 

Basics of Bone Grafting Procedure 

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that involves the transplantation of bone tissue to repair and rebuild bones that have been damaged or lost due to injury or disease. When it comes to dental bone grafting, the procedure aims to augment the jawbone to provide adequate support for dental implants.  

Our highly skilled and experienced team at Lafayette Dental Group specializes in this intricate procedure. We use advanced techniques to ensure successful outcomes. 

Jawbone Augmentation 

Jawbone augmentation is a specific type of bone grafting that focuses on enhancing the volume and density of the jawbone. This is often necessary for patients who have experienced bone resorption due to tooth loss, gum disease, or other factors.  

We can create a solid foundation with grafting for dental implants to improve overall oral health by augmenting the jawbone.  

Bone Grafting Surgery 

Our bone grafting procedure is a meticulously planned and executed procedure that plays a crucial role in restoring the jawbone's integrity and strength. Our experienced oral surgeons conduct thorough examinations and imaging prior to the bone grafting surgery.  

It helps us to assess the current bone structure and determine the most suitable approach for the grafting process. 

Graft Material Selection 

The selection of graft material is a critical aspect of the surgery. Depending on the individual patient's needs, the graft material can be sourced from various options, including the patient's own bone (autograft), donor bone from a tissue bank or synthetic materials. 

Each type of graft material has specific advantages and considerations, and our team guides patients through the selection process, considering factors such as biocompatibility, stability, and long-term integration with the natural bone. 

Graft Placement and Integration 

The selected graft material is precisely placed in the targeted area of the jawbone during the surgery. This may involve creating a small incision to access the treatment site. Once the graft is positioned, the surgical site is carefully closed, and the body's natural healing processes begin.  

Over time, the graft material integrates with the existing bone, facilitating the growth of new bone tissue and creating a robust foundation for future restorative procedures. 

Advanced Techniques and Technology 

At Lafayette Dental Group, we leverage advanced surgical techniques and state-of-the-art technology to optimize the bone grafting process. This includes the use of 3D imaging for precise treatment planning and minimally invasive surgical approaches. It also includes the application of biocompatible materials that promote efficient bone regeneration.  

We are committed to stay at the forefront of innovation in dentistry. It helps us to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality of care and achieve optimal outcomes. 

Dental Bone Grafting Cost 

The cost of dental bone grafting depends on the level of the procedure, the type of graft material used, and other factors specific to each patient's case.  

At Lafayette Dental Group, we provide transparent pricing and personalized treatment plans. It helps us in allowing our patients to make informed decisions about their dental health. We believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality dental care. That is why we strive to offer competitive and comprehensive pricing for our services. 


Is dental bone grafting a painful procedure? 

Our team takes every measure to ensure that patients are comfortable during the procedure. Local anesthesia is used to numb the treatment area to minimize the discomfort.  

Are there any risks associated with dental bone grafting? 

As with any surgical procedure, there are inherent risks, but our experienced team takes every precaution to minimize them. We conduct thorough evaluations and provide comprehensive pre- and post-operative care to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.
