If you've been looking for the best missing teeth replacement solution, you've probably already discovered the incredible benefits of dental implants.
Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth – they look, feel, and function just like the real thing!
Unfortunately, your jawbone may not be healthy and strong enough to support dental implants.
When you're missing a tooth, the underlying jawbone quickly begins to deteriorate. The longer you've been without a tooth, the more likely your jawbone will need some structural help.
Here's the good news: With bone grafting, we restore your jawbone's health by stimulating its natural growth.
Bone graft regeneration gets you the solid foundation you need to be ready for dental implants, giving you a beautiful, fully functional smile again.
Ready to learn if a bone graft is right for you? Schedule a consultation with our periodontics and dental implant expert, Dr. Nicky Hakimi.
‘‘I was a little hesitant about going for the appointment and the following procedures, but once I met Dr. Hakimi, I felt very relaxed, and my fears diminished. Her staff is extremely professional and does everything to make your visit as pleasant as possible.‘‘

Most people need bone grafting regeneration to prepare the jawbone for dental implants. This regenerative technique creates a strong foundation, so you enjoy your implants for decades to come.
Severe periodontal disease results in deep pockets and bone loss around your teeth, compromising the health of your jawbone. Bone grafting regeneration stimulates the growth and repair of the damage.
In some cases, trauma, disease, or other underlying health issues cause bone loss. Bone grafting regeneration brings your jawbone back to a healthy state and prepares it for additional treatments if necessary.

A dental bone graft is a relatively minor surgical procedure that transplants healthy bone tissue to the site on your jawbone that needs more bone density.
The transplant comes from a small sample elsewhere in your body, a synthetic source, or a donor. The healthy bone tissue triggers your body's natural growth mechanisms, causing it to regenerate at the graft site.
Bone grafting regeneration rebuilds jawbone that has deteriorated around the site of a missing tooth, giving it a sturdy foundation for dental implants.
Bone grafting regeneration is a minimally invasive form of dental surgery, so a local anesthetic or sedation technique is typically used to keep you calm and comfortable. You may feel a mild amount of tenderness or discomfort in the few days after the procedure, which can usually be treated with over-the-counter pain medication.
If you're concerned about pain or struggle with dental anxiety, that's okay! Dr. Hakimi and her team are sensitive and compassionate to dental fears. We utilize a stronger form of sedation if necessary, to get you the treatment you need.
