Prepare Your Smile for Implants With Glendale Bone Grafts

When you are missing teeth, implants give you the artificial tooth roots needed for a healthier bite and better oral health. However, if you have lived with missing teeth too long, you may need a bone grafting procedure to prepare your jaw for dental implants. If you do need bone grafts in Glendale, our procedure can:

  • Restore your jawbone health
  • Regenerate bone to strengthen your jaw
  • Create a strong foundation for implants
  • Help you avoid the “sunken cheek” look from tooth loss
  • Allow you to eat all the foods you love

Call 623-244-4304 to schedule an appointment. Dr. Stanfield would love to give your smile a new lease on life with implants.

Bolster Your Jaw Health for a Stronger Smile

If you are missing teeth, you don’t just deal with their loss. Without the tooth roots in your jaw to stimulate your jawbone, you experience bone loss too. A bone grafting procedure will help regenerate bone in your jaw so you are prepared for a successful implant procedure.

While it may sound complicated, this process is relatively simple. Here is what you can expect:

  • Dr. Stanfield will numb the area, then make a small opening in your gum. While it’s a painless procedure, we can offer  sedation to ease your nerves You can choose laughing gas or oral sedation with a small pill.
  • He will place a small amount of bone material in your jaw to encourage the development of bone growth, then seal the area with a membrane.
  • Once the procedure is complete, over the course of a few months your jawbone will return to optimal health.
  • You’ll return for checkups so we can monitor your bone development and plan your implant procedure.

Give Your Replacement Teeth a Strong Foundation

After your bone grafting procedure, we’ll discuss your dental implant options. Depending on your situation, we may recommend:

  • A single crown with an implant to replace a single tooth
  • Implant-supported bridge to avoid modifying your healthy teeth
  • Implant-retained dentures so your new teeth securely snap into place
  • Implant-supported dentures to give you the feel and function of lifelike teeth
