If you’re looking at getting dental implants in Murfreesboro, TN, you may need to also get a bone graft, depending on your available level of bone. Bone grafting is a procedure used to supplement the jawbone to ensure your tooth implant has a secure anchor. Without sufficient bone, your implant will not be able to function with the other teeth. Dr. Steven Daniel and Dr. Joanne Gaydos-Daniel are experienced periodontists in Murfreesboro with a proven bone grafting technique.

The Procedure

Our bone reconstruction procedure is performed right here in the office. The doctors will:

•  Use local anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.

•  Expose the area that needs a bone graft and clean it thoroughly.

•  Prepare the grafting material and put it in place.

•  Combine the graft with concentrated growth factor (CGF). CGF is material that has been separated from your own blood to help with the healing process.

•  Put a protective membrane over the graft to keep it in place and promote healing.

•  Close the site with stitches.

•  Regularly see you over the next few weeks to ensure the graft site is healing properly and the replacement bone is successfully taking.

•  See you for a final evaluation in four to six months and at that time place the dental implants.

The Benefits

Getting a bone graft is beneficial for a lot of reasons. First, it helps stimulate growth of new bone, so you won’t end up with a sagging facial expression. It also ensures that your dental implant will have a strong root in your mouth. Another benefit is that you get to have dental implants in Murfreesboro, TN, even if you initially did not have enough bone density.
