Preparation for Implant Placement

At Facial Surgery Group, we most commonly perform bone grafting and ridge modifications for dental implants and for treating deformities or diseases in the jaw. If you are considering dental implants, a clinical and radiographic examination will determine if you have enough bone available to place an implant. If not, then bone grafting in Kansas City may be necessary.

Understanding Bone Grafts

When we take a bone graft, we either use an autograft (taken from your own self), an allograft (taken from a human donor), or a xenograft (taken from an animal donor). The bone needs to be both tall enough and wide enough to completely cover the implant.

When a tooth is removed, the greatest amount of bone loss occurs within the first several months. We can minimize this bone loss by placing a bone graft within the empty tooth socket at the time of extraction. This procedure is referred to as socket preservation. After bone healing and remodeling, there still may not be enough bone. Additional types of bone grafts and ridge modifications may be discussed to achieve adequate bone height and width.

Bone grafts are used to restore areas of bone loss from dental extractions, periodontal disease, aging, and trauma.  Bone grafting and ridge modification can prepare these areas for implant placement and other procedures.

Patient Stories

  • I grew up without much dental care. I was embarrassed by my teeth. I guess that somewhere along the lines, I learned to hide my smile. Then I had kids and naturally, their needs came first; music lessons, sports, braces, college. When the last one graduated from college, my husband insisted that it was my turn. My new teeth are beautiful. My husband says it was worth every penny. He says, “Happy Wife, Happy Life”.

  • I was so afraid to have my tooth pulled that I didn’t sleep the night before. Everybody there was so nice and made me feel so comfortable that it was a piece of cake. I don’t know how to thank you enough.

  • I recently got my third implant over the last ten years from the Facial Surgery Group. Once again, all the staff I interacted with were professional, friendly and skilled at their jobs. I highly recommend them.
