Bone Grafting for Dental Implants in Los Angeles

What is a Bone Graft?

In dentistry, bone grafting is an oral surgery procedure that involves the placement of new bone, either from your own jawbone (or hip in some cases) or a substitute, to help restore your jawbone to appropriate levels necessary for procedures such as dental implant placement.

Why Would I Need a Bone Graft?

Bone grafting is a procedure often used to accompany the placement of dental implants.

Dental implants have provided a viable option in replacing broken, missing, or faulty teeth. They improve every year with small advancements in durability, strength, and placement.

However, not everyone has a mouth naturally fit for a dental implant. And at Dr. Thein’s office we will not place an implant into your mouth unless we know your mouth can fully support it. Other dentists may opt to place a dental implant anyways and essentially hope for the best. That’s not our philosophy here. Dr. Thein has a very high success rate of placing dental implants because he is committed to ensuring the best outcome.

Dr. Thein is one of LA’s leading dental implant dentists.

Bone grafts create a solid base for a dental implant. If you have a jawbone that is too soft or is not thick enough, then Dr. Thein will not place an implant unless a bone graft is completed.

The reason being because the chance of dental implant failure is very high if your jawbone is not strong enough to support titanium implants undergoing excessive pressure from chewing on a daily basis.

What to Expect from a Bone Graft

It may sound like a daunting procedure, but in actuality it’s a routine, painless procedure that Dr. Thein has performed many times to patients eager to receive their dental implants. It may take several months for new bone to regenerate.

During your FREE dental implant consultation, Dr. Thein will walk you through the process so you understand exactly what to expect including post-op instructions while the site heals.
