Bone Grafting For Dental Implants

Your Dental Expert In Clearwater, FL


Bone loss in the jawbone is common when one or more teeth have been lost due to injury, decay, or trauma. Without the tooth in place to stimulate the jawbone, the bone around the missing tooth will begin to deteriorate. Over time, the jawbone may deteriorate to such an extent that there may not be enough bone to place dental implants. In cases such as these, your dentist may recommend having a bone grafting procedure.

Types Of Bone Graft Procedures

Bone grafting is the replacement or augmentation of missing bone around the teeth.

There are three types of bone graft procedures: autogenous, allograft, and xenograft.

Autogenous grafts take bone from one area of the patient’s body and transplant it to the location in the mouth being restored. The bone is usually taken from non-essential bones such as the chin area. The benefit of an autogenous bone graft is that the bone used comes solely from the patient thus reducing the likelihood of rejection and infection. The bone is also still “live”, meaning it still has active cellular material.

Allografts also use human bone transplanted to the area in the mouth being restored. However, allografts do not use the patient’s own bone. Instead, the bone usually comes from cadavers who have donated their bone to bone-banks. All allograft bone material is carefully screened and is considered very safe.

Xenografts also replace bone in the area requiring treatment, however, the bone comes from a non-human source. Usually, the non-human source is bovine (cow). Allografts and Xenografts are used because they do not require a second surgical site to harvest bone and ample amounts of bone can be easily attained.

The Procedure

Local anesthesia is used to numb the area where the bone will be removed as well as the location where the bone will be augmented. An incision is made in the gums around where the bone will be augmented. This is done so that the dentist can see exactly how much bone will be need before harvesting it from the patient (if an autogenous graft is being performed).

Next, the dentist will make a cut in the gums below the lower front teeth in order to expose the chin bone. The dentist will then remove a part of the bone along with any bone marrow. This incision is then closed with stitches.

The bone removed from the chin will then be anchored in place in the jawbone with small titanium screws.

The dentist may place a mixture of your bone marrow and some bone-grafting material around the bone graft to help speed healing. The incision is then closed with stitches.

After the procedure, you will likely be given antibiotics as well as pain medication. You’ll be asked to follow a restricted diet of soft foods such as pastas and Jell-O. Bone grafts usually take about six to nine months to heal completely. Dental implants will not be placed until your mouth has healed completely.

Dr. Wagner is a true artisan. A few years ago I chipped a front tooth. I thought I would need a crown. He was able to simply fix it and it was gorgeous. After a couple years of heavy wear and tear it... was in need of a little brush up. I was thinking, shots, drilling, crown and on and on. But to him, it was as if he could do this with his hands tied behind his back. In a few minutes in a simple inspection appointment he had it back to perfection. No shots, no nothing. Honestly, I was shocked to see such skill. Kudos to Dr. Wagner. I live globally, so have dentists around the world, but he is KING. Additionally, a few days prior, Gail cleaned my teeth. She is so upbeat, so positive and so helpful....which is why I also request only her whenever I am back. My wife is from the Ukraine where she had less than pleasant experiences in the past. But I am 100% confident that she will have a very new viewpoint after going to this office. Thank you! Posted by Tarron Sage for KM.read more

So the girl on the... billing side noticed and checked me in. I no longer sat down and they called me back. Dr K also greeted me with a nice warm welcome. The young girl that scanned my teeth, was so very sweet and kind. So thoughtful that she was watching to be sure the wires were not in my face. Then Helen came in and said she could save me a trip, and she could do my cleaning today as well. I love them all. My teeth look so pretty and clean!read more

My first visit went very well. My goal was to get a second opinion on having some fairly extensive (& expensive) dental work done. Dr K was great at explaining my options & ruling out one that I... thought I might be able to get by with. He came up with a great idea regarding a bridge that I'm going to have done. Their prices were competitive but a touch higher than the dentist I've been going to for several years. Everyone in the office was very professional. I haven't decided what I'm going to do next but I will definitely consider Northwood Dental when I have the work done.read more

We are Jill's patients for over a decade now and she has been taking great care of our teeth. Now I am taking my daughter to dental cleaning appointments with Helen. At our last appointment we were... reminiscing of how long we know each other. When you walk into a dentist's office you expect professionalism. You expect to get a certain standard. Professionalism lays ground to trust. Trust builds true relationships which works better than any other artificially created advertising or PR. This kind of old school pride and professionalism comes natural in Northwood Dental. We love you Jill!Update 11/03/2019I meant to add that my daughter recently needed dental surgery. Her orthodontist referrred her to a dental surgeon. In the very last minute we found out that the sedative, Versed*, they want to knock her out is the worst. I turned to Dr Jill via email, who recommended Dr Claudio who used a lighter, less brutal sedative saving the day. *Can cause paranoid or suicidal ideation and impair memory, judgment, and coordination. Combining with other substances, particularly alcohol, can slow breathing and possibly lead to death.read more

A few weeks ago I chipped my two front teeth. I called the office first thing Monday morning and told them what happened. I was very upset. They got me in around 11 in the a.m. My hygienist, Helen,... came over to see me and gave me a hug. She is without a doubt, a wonderful person. She looked at my teeth and told me it was going to be okay and calmed my fears. Aleah then took over and prepared me for Dr. K. She was very sweet and told me everything they were going to do. What can I say about Dr. K? The man walks into a room and knows just how to calm me down with his soothing voice and quiet, zen like presence. Such kindness. Thank you to the entire team for fixing my teeth and washing away the tears.read more

I just completed laser gum surgery at Northwood Dental with Dr. Wagner. The "old" way of doing gum surgery according to my Mother was "worse than childbirth" and involved scalpels, sutures and... excruciating pain. I have to say, going the laser surgery route with Dr. Wagner was painless, easy and after a week my gums are pink and healthy again! My laser surgery was a relatively long process (about 3 hours for each half of the mouth done over two visits) but like I said, it was simple and easy for me as a patient and not at ALL painful! I would like to add that Dr. Wagner and his assistant worked together like a super choreographed routine. He didn't have to say anything. His assistant knew exactly what to do throughout the entire procedure which speaks volumes as to their experience with this type of procedure and this put to rest any fears or nervousness I might have felt. If you need gum surgery I highly recommend Dr. Wagner and Northwood Dental. If you are a big chicken about pain like I am, then I DOUBLY recommend them! You won't regret it 🙂read more

Amazing, amazing experience. I have been going to Northwood Dental for a while and they have always been exceptional. I decided to bring my kids in to the same dentist as me and scheduled their... appointments (all 3 of them for the same day). I realized the day of the appointment that all three of my kids had baseball games an hour and a half after the start of their appointment. The office staff immediately assisted me when we got in and had multiple people working with all of my kids at the same time so that we can get to our games on time. It was definitely a team work and all hands on deck kind of experience. The dentist and all the staff made sure my kids received quality care quickly. My children, who have previously feared the dentist.... loved it! I would recommend Northwood Dental to anyone. They have truly been a blessing.read more

I would recommend Northwood Dental to any family member or friend (and have). I think that says it. I have been going to ND for at least five years. The people there are friendly, efficient... and the most important thing, they do excellent work on my teeth. Whether it's a cleaning and exam or a filling I've always been happy.read more

I think my Dentophobia just got much better after I got couple of teeth fixed by Dr K'. I normally do not enjoy going to the dentist but I had a great experience with Dr. K. My teeth were not in... great shape and he took good care. He never made me feel bad about not taking better care of my teeth which I have experienced with previous dentists.He's thorough, patient, clear, and made me feel as comfortable as possible while sitting in that dentists chair. Highly recommend!!read more

I have been going to Northwood Dental for several years, due to insurance or lack of there have been times I unfortunately had to go elsewhere, I have never had the exceptional experience as with Dr.... Jill and her staff. Everyone is personable, friendly, and knowledgeable. They really get to know their patients and go above and beyond to ensure you are comfortable and pleased with your treatment. I think it's wonderful that Dr. Jill always includes her assistants/team in deciding treatment options and throughly explains what is being done and why it is the best option in a way that is understandable to the patient also. She is meticulous and you will never leave the office disappointed!read more

Great experience. I had 1 veneer come off. I was quoted 3600 for veneers at another dentist. The other dentist said I had cavities under veneers and needed to get 2 new ones. I went to Dr. Wagner... and found out the teeth had stains only, it was corrected and 1 veneer was put back on for $200. Glad I got a second opinion from a qualified dentist.read more

It was my first time, I went to see Dr Jill. She’s the most amazing doctor ever, very kind, knowledgeable and amazingly caring. She patiently answered all my questions and cleared up all confusions I... had and just loved being in her space. When she was with me I felt like everything will be OK, she paid so much attention to me I felt like the center ofthe universe. Her assistant was very kind and caring as well they work very well and efficiently together. We went over a treatment plan she suggested and her coordinator and I continued setting the appointments. She was really patient and caring and put all the effort find the perfect appointments for me to get done as much as we can in one day, because I am coming out of town, one hr and twenty min, but absolutely worth the drive. Everybody else is very nice in the office, the atmosphere is just great and calming. I hate going to the dentist and hate dentist office but loved being here. I already made a new patient appointment for my stepson.read more

Oct. 09, 2017:I just broke a tooth on Saturday...Monday I called Northwood Dental, and was able to be seen at 12 A.M. Dr. Karunagaran and Gaby took great care of me. They assessed the... situation-told me my options, I decided, and in an hour and a half came out with a fixed tooth. I chose a crown, as it was a tooth in the back that had a filling. I felt no pain, and I felt “taken care of”. Thank you so much for helping me!I highly recommend this office. You will be respected, your health and wellness is foremost, and you will be a very satisfied customer.Kathie O’LearySeveral years ago I received news from a dentist that he could not fill a tooth-I would need to pay more $ than I had to fix it. I talked with a friend who highly recommended Northwood Dental.Northwood Dental was able to fill that tooth, and I have been coming back here for years. The staff is always friendly, respectful, helpful and professional. I see Helen for cleaning and Dr. Wagner for checkups. My son and daughter in law come here as well. February 21, 2018-August 22, 2018Thank you to Dr. Jill Hagan, Gaby and Alli for my Beautifully aligned teeth!I had braces as a teenager. Alas, the doctor retired and never told my parents nor myself that I needed to wear the retainer each night, for the rest of my life. Thus, I my 60's a space was developing between my front teeth, the overbite was happening again. In addition, I was now a caregiver and the stress caused me to grind my teeth at night. The envisalign helped all three! Dr. Jill and her team of Alli and Gaby formatted a plan, took scans of my teeth, ordered The envisalign, and we all delighted as my smile and alignment of my teeth improved throughout the weeks. My sleep improved as I now had a mouthguard with the envisalign units, and then the retainers. I whitened my teeth in the same units, and looked so much better than before the procedure. I recommend this team highly: 🦷🦷🦷🦷🦷🦷🦷🦷🦷🦷👍🏽. Thank you Dr. Jill, Alli, and Gaby!Thank you to Helen for always getting my teeth 🦷 cleaned perfectly squeeky clean! You know me so well and how to help with my hygiene! 5/24/19-6/3/19. Dr. Wagner was concerned that my back upper tooth, which had a chip broken off, would break more so I came in for a 👑. I was impressed with all of the thought and planning that went into the repair of the broken tooth, scanning the bite to make sure it would be right, forming the crown, molding the temporary crown, protecting the roots, making the mold of the permanent crown, checking the bite. Dr. Wagner and Alli worked together, and then Dr. Wagner and Gaby worked on it. (Alli's brother was graduating and she wanted to be a part of the important occasion.). There was no pain in the processes, everyone me was gentle and efficient, and I walked away feeling good that we'd saved the tooth. I recall Gaby thoughtfully applying Vaseline o my lips to relieve them through the process.Because of my stress at home-caregiving-I must have ground my teeth at night- and a part of the temporary crown broke off on the weekend. Gaby came to the rescue that Monday and remade the temporary, refitted it gently, with no discomfort, and I am now sitting at home writing this review with a new temporary crown, a happy smile, saying Thank You. 🦷🦷🦷🦷🦷🦷🦷🦷🦷🦷👍🏽read more

A great group of doctors, hygienists, and staff that truly work as a team and enjoy their work. Always on time and will even take me back before my appointment if I arrive a little early. I had some... extensive dental work that took Dr. Wagner & Dr. Jill over nine months to complete. Both doctors and the entire Northwood Dental team made every visit as pleasant as possible, never rushing their work and always eagerly embracing any new challenge my teeth brought them. I was never made to feel embarrassed about the state of my teeth or shown any passive aggressive behavior while they worked, which I have experienced at other dentist offices in the past. My comfort was their top priority. Tami has done my cleanings for the past 2.5 yrs and is top notch! Her gentle touch and positive reinforcement has inspired me to take better care of my teeth. I'm 52 and have never had a consistent evening dental routine. Because of Tami, I have not gone one night in over 365 days without flossing and brushing. Flossing has become a luxury gift I give myself instead of a chore! I actually look forward to my cleaning visits, it's like a spa massage for my teeth! 😁read more

In my life I have spent a lot of time going to the dentist. My orthodontist dubbed me the worst case he ever had. Lots of time money and pain. When I arrived at Northwood dental it was the first... really positive experience I ever had. Every other dentist before would just fix the problem I was complaining of and ignore the rest. The dentists at Northwood insisted I get a plan done. This was a correct action. We came up with a plan that would fix my dental problems for good. Not only that but the dentists and staff are fantastic at their jobs. it's the first time I have not had anxiety about going to the dentist. It's the first time I have had cleanings that were not torture. I now have full implants and bridge on the top and have a beautiful smile. The bottom we are fixing but my teeth are being saved. Thank you so much to Dr. Wagner, Dr. K (the best implant dentist around), . Mary, Gabby, Ally and all of this wonderful staff. Truly truly friendly staff. Would recommend all to go.read more

Dear Dr. Karanguran, Gabi and Belinda, We often express the bad that happens to us, but we do not do the same with the good. That is why with great emotion and gratitude I wish to make a very... special recognition to Dr. Karungaran, as well as to Gabi and Belinda. If there is something that we are losing in this world, is humanity. Sadly it is something that we experience every day. But today, apart that Dr. Karungaran magically solved the problem of my tooth, together with Gabi and Belinda had an unforgettable gesture of understanding and care that I will never forget. It is wonderful to feel understood and supported. And that is precisely what you did with me today. I'm going to write this with huge letters on the face of the moon, so that the whole world knows about your existence. Eternal thanks.read more

How do you find a... dentist on the west coast, east coast and former Soviet Union? You ask locals, other doctors and look at reviews. This is how you find the best of the best. And then go try them out. You will have points of comparison and experience to judge by. That's how I found the 3 best dental offices in the world.Oh and one final note.

I have had other dentists in the past who would just start drilling even if I wasn't numb (gasp!) or didn't seem to really care about me or my concerns. But not Jill. She's professional, honest and explains everything she's doing as she does it. I'm now doing Invisalign with her and cannot wait to have the straightest teeth in all the land!
