Bone Grafting in
Miami Lakes

Before new teeth can be restored, the bone must first be treated and augmented in order to create a wider surface for teeth to be attached. The process for this is known as bone grafting.

Also known as bone augmentation, this dental regenerative procedure aims to restore the bone by building it. This procedure is offered at our Miami Lakes, Florida office. This is applicable in cases where the bones are not wide enough or high enough.

The main purpose of the procedure is to encourage the body to begin rebuilding the bone and other structures surrounding it. More often than not, bone grafts are done in preparation for dental implants. The procedure provides a surface that is large enough for the implants to be attached to. Other times, bone grafting can be done to preserve facial bones. The shrinking of these bones due to tooth loss can affect how a person looks and make him or her look old.

What Happens During the Procedure?

Patients undergoing this procedure may opt for local anesthesia or sedation at the onset.

The area is covered with a thin film or another material to prevent the gums from growing into the area while it is healing. This also prevents the bone from growing irregularly. The gums are then stitched and closed.

Aside from a person’s own bone, other graft materials may be used for the procedure. Cow bone and synthetic glasses are some other common graft materials being used.

Being an outpatient procedure, most patients are able to return to their home a few hours after the procedure is completed. Close monitoring is done during the healing process to ensure that the bone develops properly as needed.

I've been coming here since February 2013 and before I found this office I didn't feel as comfortable as I feel everytime I come here. The whole staff is excellent! They're friendly and professional. Dr. Gherbali is amazing, I don't change her for anything. I don't live close to the office yet I still come because simply is just worth it.
