Bone Grafting in San Ramon, CA

Your jawbone's strength is essential to your overall dental health. If your jawbone is weakened from physical trauma or missing teeth, you may need bone grafting so the jaw can securely hold both your natural teeth and dental implants. Bone grafting helps to reinforce and build up your jawbone so it's healthy enough to support a dental implant. At San Ramon Family Dental, this surgery is performed to prepare your jaw for subsequent dental implant surgery to replace weak or missing teeth. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Rupam Khanna at her San Ramon, CA office to learn more about bone graft surgery.

The exact process of your bone grafting procedure will depend on the graft source and the amount of grafting needed. The donor bone may be removed from another bone in your body, such as your chin, shin, or hip, known as an autograft. This may be performed in our office using local anesthesia and sedation or at a surgical facility using general anesthesia. Additional graft sources may include an allograft, which uses bone harvested from another human. A xenograft uses bone taken from an animal, generally a cow. A synthetic bone graft, known as an alloplast, may also be used. Dr. Khanna will explain your graft options during your consultation and help you choose the best plan.

Once your graft is ready to be placed, Dr. Khanna will prepare the areas being treated and make an incision through the gum tissue to expose the bone. The graft will be affixed to the bone along with collagen and proteins that encourage the graft to attach and grow. The incision will be stitched closed, and the area will be cleaned.

At San Ramon Family Dental, bone grafting offers a variety of advantages for San Ramon, CA patients with bone loss in the jaw. Here are some key advantages:

  • Could work to limit added damage to the teeth and jaw
