Have you lost bone structure due to infection?

Bone grafts are a surgical procedure to restore the health and structure of your jaw. Here are some reasons why bone may be missing in the jaws include:

  • Injury
  • Developmental deformity
  • Previous dental procedures including extractions or surgery
  • Infection resulting in bone defects
  • Lesions including cysts, abscesses and other pathological lesions such as tumors
  • While bone may be lost at the time of tooth extraction due to the surgical procedure, it may also be lost in the months following tooth removal, a process known as bone resorption.

Bone Grafts

Bone grafts involve the use of a grafting material which may either be patient-derived, animal derived or synthetic. Such materials assist the body in regenerating bone where it has been destroyed. Such grafts are often required around dental implants when they are placed in the jaw after the bone loss has taken place previously.

After surgery, you will receive antibiotics and analgesics. You should limit your dietary intake to soft mushy food for the first week after surgery. A bone graft is normally left for 4 to 6 months to mature and achieve greater strength before such bone can be used to support implants to help improve your smile.

TMJ

Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located just in front of your ear and allows the lower jaw to move when eating or speaking. In between the bones of the joint is a small piece of cartilage which acts as a buffer between the bones. There can be multiple causes, all of which can cause pain either within the joint or in the muscles around the jaws.

Treatment may involve gentle exercise, resting the joint, medications, provision of a splint to be worn at night, botox, or in some cases surgery.

Our Happy Customers

"As excruciating as going to the dentist is, I always look forward to my visits here. Dr. Gregory has been my dentist for a few years now and he is absolutely amazing at what he does. Linda, his sister, who manages the office is awesome and accommodating. Highly recommended!"

Yalile

"Dr. Gregory is truly the best. He (and his office manager / sister Linda) are very pleasant to work with, but most importantly, he is extremely thoughtful and someone who I trust completely in a field in which that can be very hard to find. I never feel that he is trying to "up-sell" some procedure that is unnecessary, and in fact on several occasions has recommended against certain cosmetic procedures that others had recommended. He really is a trusted "dental consultant" (if that makes sense?)- and always willing to offer his time when needed. Don't hesitate to go to him!"

Kevin

"I've been going to Dr Gregory for ten years and he's still the best in his field . I left for a year due to insurance changes and was miserable. The office is super clean . Linda is fantastic ."
