Bone Grafting

Major & Minor Bone Grafting

Missing teeth over a period of time can cause your jaw bone to atrophy, or resorb. This often results in poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for the placement of dental implants as well as long term shifting of remaining teeth and changes to facial structure. Most patients, in these situations, are not candidates for dental implants.

Fortunately, today we have the ability to grow bone where it is needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, but it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.

Major Bone Grafting

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease, or injuries. The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw, hip or tibia (below the knee). Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw. In addition, special membranes may be utilized that dissolve under the gum to protect the bone graft, as well as encourage bone regeneration. This is called guided bone regeneration, or guided tissue regeneration.

Major bone grafts are typically performed to repair defects of the jaws. These defects may arise as a result of traumatic injuries, tumor surgery, or congenital defects. Large defects are repaired using the patient’s own bone. This bone is harvested from a number of different areas depending on the size needed. The skull (cranium), hip (iliac crest), and lateral knee (tibia), are common donor sites. These procedures are routinely performed in an operating room and require a hospital stay.

Patient Review from ANN B

I experienced no nausea. The bleeding had stopped right after I got home. Eight hours later I am pain free and I didn't have to use any pain medication. Thank you all.

Patient Review from Donna P

From your initial consultation to your actual surgery, you can't help but feel anxious about having oral surgery. But the calming voices and caring mannerisms of the Kenosha Lakeside Oral Surgery office staff, surgical assistants and Dr. Paul Pamula puts you right at ease. They truly care about the needs of their patients. One minute you are talking with them and before you know it, you are in recovery and didn't feel a thing. They are professionals who are dedicated and devoted to their patients and profession. I would recommend Lakeside Oral Surgery to anyone who require oral surgery.
