Bone Grafting

Dental implant patients need a strong, healthy jawbone since this bone anchors the implants in place. Insufficient jawbone prevents us from placing implants of the proper length and width.

Unfortunately, if you lose teeth, your jawbone may begin to atrophy. This often means there won't be sufficient quality or quantity of bone suitable for the placement of dental implants. In these situations, we can transplant bone where needed.

Do you want comfortable, cost-effective care? Please don’t hesitate to request an appointment. We’re here for you!


Minor Bone Grafts

Bone grafting can repair implant sites that have inadequate bone structure due to:

  • Previous extractions
  • Gum disease
  • Injuries

The bone can be obtained from a tissue bank or your own body. The most common harvesting sites are:

  • Jaw
  • Hip
  • Tibia (below the knee)

Sinus bone grafts are performed to replace bone in the upper jaw.

In addition, special membranes may be utilized that dissolve under the gum and protect the bone graft and encourage bone regeneration. This is called guided bone regeneration or guided tissue regeneration.

Major Bone Grafts

Major bone grafts are typically performed to repair defects of the jaws. These defects may arise as a result of:

  • Congenital Defects
  • Traumatic Injuries
  • Tumor Surgery

Large defects are repaired using the patient’s own bone. This bone can be harvested from several different sites, depending on the size of the defect or deterioration. The skull, hip, and knee are all common donor sites.

“I’m very glad I discovered Dr. Ferber. I came to him because I had a multitude of dental problems. The teeth were just a disaster, and I was totally embarrassed to smile. I kept replacing teeth and going in for crowns and root canals. Finally, I decided I wanted to go for a full-mouth implant.  I wish I had done this many years ago. The results are just exemplary. If you’re suffering like I was for many, many years, do not hesitate.”

“People ask me all the time where I got my new smile done and I tell them Dr. Ferber. Before I got the work done, I didn’t feel very confident. I didn’t want anyone to see me smile. And now, I love to smile, and I get so many compliments on my smile. It was an easy, painless experience. The staff was great, and the price was right.”


“Dr. Ferber really knows his stuff. Since I had my teeth really done over, I have my smile back. And I have my giggle back! I would say that anybody questioning what they should do, they should come here. The whole team treats you like you’re family. They’re warm and they care.”

“Your staff is very professional and friendly, as always. Who looks forward to going to the dentist?!?! Not many. But your office makes it seem less of a disagreeable task. Don’t misunderstand, I still don’t like going. But if I have to, I’m glad I go to your practice!”
