Bone Grafting in Jericho

The term “bone grafting” can sound a little scary. You may avoid going to your dentist altogether because of this fear. However, at the dental office of Warren Baine, DMD, you will receive the best dental care using the most advanced techniques, equipment, and materials. Dr. Baine is a highly experienced oral surgeon who specializes in bone grafting in Jericho, and will be sure to make your entire experience is as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible. And that all begins by educating on his patients.

In the instance of a missing tooth or many missing teeth, a few things can happen. First of all, it’s important to understand that your jaw bone is what holds your teeth in place. The roots of your teeth are surrounded by bone and attached by some other anatomical structures that we don’t really want to worry about today. Once a tooth is removed, the bone doesn’t have anything to support anymore. Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies or is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants. In these situations, most patients are not candidates for placement of dental implants. Today, we have the ability to grow bone where needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and esthetic appearance. Bone grafting in Jericho can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. 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 sites depending on the size of the defect. The skull (cranium), hip (iliac crest), and lateral knee (tibia), are common donor sites.

Although bone grafting is a surgical procedure which can sometimes be rather extensive, it plays a very important role in making new teeth possible.

Here at the office of Dr. Warren Baine, one of the most important services that our Jericho Long Island oral surgeon provides for patients is the dental implant restoration. Dental implants are some of the most effective and successful toot replacement options available today, and so many patients choose their as their treatment method of choice. Dental implant restorations are made up of two parts. The first part is the implant itself, which is a small metal post that our Jericho Long Island oral surgeon puts in place directly in the jaw bone, where the missing or extracted tooth once was. Over a designated healing period, a process called osteointegration occurs, encouraging the bone and the metal implant to come together and form a sturdy foundation to which the new replacement tooth can later be attached. In order for a dental implant restoration to be successful, you must meet a few main criteria. Firstly, it is important that your teeth and gums be in otherwise good health in order to heal from the surgery properly. If you have any kind of periodontal disease or other similar issues, we will clear those up before continuing with the dental implant process. It is also important that you have sufficient underlying bone mass to support a dental implant. Missing teeth can lead to degeneration of the bone, so that can be a common problem for patients seeking dental implant restorations. Fortunately, our Jericho Long Island oral surgeon has services available to get you ready for dental implant surgery, such as sinus and ridge augmentation, which can be used to create a more habitable environment for dental implant restorations to take place.
