What Is Bone Grafting?
The strength of your jawbone is very important to your overall dental health. If your jawbone is weakened from physical trauma or missing teeth, you may need to get bone grafting done so your jaw can properly fit your natural teeth and dental implants. Bone grafting, also known as osseous surgery, helps to reinforce and rebuild your jawbone until it's stable enough to support an implant. At Kansas City Surgical Arts, osseous surgery is offered to prepare your jaw before dental implant surgery to replace weak or missing teeth. Make an appointment with Dr. Matthew Hlavacek or Dr. Jason Baker, our board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons, in Kansas City, MO to get more information on bone grafting.
What Can I Expect from Bone Grafting?
The steps of bone grafting surgery will vary based on where the graft comes from and the amount of grafting needed. The donor bone may be taken from one area of your body, such as the shin, hip, or chin, which is known as an autograft. This may be completed in our Kansas City, MO office with local anesthesia and sedation, or at an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia. Other graft sources include an allograft that uses bone harvested from another person. A xenograft bone graft is taken from an animal, generally a cow. An alloplast is a synthetic bone graft. In your consultation, Dr. Hlavacek or Dr. Baker will explain your graft options and help you decide on the best plan for your needs.
When the bone graft is ready, an incision will be made through the gum tissue to expose the jawbone. The graft will be affixed to your jawbone with proteins and collagen that stimulate growth in the graft. The incision will be closed with sutures, and your mouth will be cleaned.
Kansas City Surgical Arts Reviews
Everyone that I had any interaction with at this facility were beyond amazing!!! From the doctor to all of the nursing staff and the anesthesiologist, there wasn’t a question that went unanswered, not a feeling that wasn’t comforted…I had the most incredible experience and couldn’t be more impressed! I highly recommend this facility to anyone and everyone looking to have work done. You will NOT be disappointed.
Dr.Baker was amazing! I was having issues on the day of surgery and gave him a call up around 10pm not knowing if he was going to answer, but he did and helped me tremendously with getting the prescription I needed right away. We had a little trouble finding a pharmacy so he did some research after our call and gave us a call back about 30 minutes later. He even gave me a check up call in the morning to make sure I was still doing alright. He saved me so trouble by answering his phone that night, can’t say thank you enough.
We were so impressed by Dr.Baker and his staff. I had a small complication prior to surgery , and Dr.Baker himself called me back and helped me. Then when I arrived for my surgery, my driver developed medical issues, and they took care of him as well! They were all so kind and caring, never rushed. Then Dr. Baker called back in the afternoon to check on both of us! I would give the very highest recommendation to anyone I know needing oral surgery.
My son was so nervous to get his wisdom teeth out. We had everything thoroughly explained to us. We were treated so well. Thank you for the care you gave my son!
Everyone was very kind and explained every procedure that was going to be performed. I have had no problems
