Bone Grafting  | Austintown OH

Over time, jawbone loss from missing teeth creates issues for dental implant placement. Bone grafting remedies this, enabling proper implant placement, functionality, and aesthetics.

Major Bone Grafting: Repairs deficient implant sites, using either harvested bone or tissue bank sources. Sinus bone grafts and guided regeneration are common procedures for restoring jawbone structure.

Types of Bone Grafts:

  1. Autogenous: Your own bone, but requires additional surgery.
  2. Allogenic: Dead bone from cadavers, providing a scaffold for new bone growth.
  3. Xenogenic: From other species, serving as a framework for bone growth.

Bone Graft Substitutes: Synthetic materials like DBM, graft composites, and BMPs offer alternatives to real bone grafts, each with its own benefits.

Causes of Jawbone Loss:

  • Tooth extractions
  • Periodontal disease
  • Dentures/bridgework
  • Oral trauma
  • Misalignment
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Tumors
  • Developmental deformities
  • Sinus deficiencies

Effects of Tooth and Jawbone Loss:

  • Misalignment and tooth problems
  • Facial changes
  • Pain and headaches
  • Difficulty eating and speaking
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Sinus issues

Bone grafting restores jawbone health and prevents further complications from tooth and bone loss.

Dr Wagley and his staff at both locations have been very helpful with scheduling appointments, helping with insurance and answering our numerous questions. Dr Wagley took those extra time week before surgery to reassure us about the procedure and address last minute concerns.
