Bone Grafts in Hackensack, NJ

If you’re interested in dental implants, our dentists will use high-tech equipment like our 3-D CT scanner to see if your jaw is strong enough to support them. If you’ve been missing teeth for a while, chances are you’ve lost bone density. Fortunately, Summit Dental offers options for boosting jaw strength, including bone grafts in Hackensack.

A bone grafting procedure will:

  • Create a strong foundation for dental implants
  • Cause little if any discomfort
  • Improve your overall dental health

Bone Grafting Is a Surprisingly Simple Procedure For Restoring Your Lost Bone

In the hands of an expert like Dr. Daniel Le Pera or one of our other dentists, bone grafting is a simple procedure. Your dentist will:

  • Numb your mouth with local anesthesia and administer dental sedation, if desired
  • Place special material designed to encourage new bone growth in the area where it is needed
  • Use no more than a few sutures to keep the material where it belongs
  • Examine you at later checkups so we can determine when your jaw is ready for implants

While the ability to regenerate bone will vary from patient to patient, you will likely be able to receive implants within a few months.

You Also Have Other Options For Dental Implants

Our dentists will be able to better advise you after a complete exam, but you may have options other than a grafting procedure if your jaw is too weak for implants. You may be able to receive:

  • Mini Dental Implants – Since they are smaller than full-size implants, mini implants are easier on your jaw. They work well for certain types of implant procedures, especially stabilizing dentures in the lower jaw.
  • All-on-4® or All-on-6 Dental Implants – These procedures make it possible to support a complete arch of replacement teeth with either four or six implants. It’s less invasive since fewer implants are used.
