Bone Grafting

Bone Grafting in Las Vegas, Nevada

Grafting Restores Volume and Density in the Jawbone

Time is of the essence. Untreated bone loss can result in loose teeth and even tooth loss. As a result, chewing and speaking can become difficult. Worse still, jawbone loss can cause an individual’s face to lose its natural shape over time.

A timely dental bone graft can help counteract these effects, restoring volume and density to the jawbone.

What Is Bone Grafting?

Oral bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces lost bone tissue with transplanted tissue. The bone grafting material can be derived from your body or synthetically manufactured.

Once in place, the bone graft sets up a space for the healing process to take place, enabling the body to rebuild bone tissue where needed.

What Should I Expect During Treatment?


The steps in the bone grafting procedure are as follows:

  • Local anesthetic is administered before the surgery begins. 
  • The next step is for your dentist to make a small incision in your gums. The gum tissue is carefully lifted back to reveal the jawbone. 
  • After cleaning and disinfecting the area, the dentist will insert bone grafting material. 
  • Next, a membrane is usually applied to the bone graft to provide additional protection. 
  • Finally, stitching brings closure to the incision.
