Dental Bone Grafting in Beverly Hills

What is Bone Grafting?

A strong jawbone is crucial to a healthy, beautiful smile. However, when you lose a tooth, the surrounding bone can begin to atrophy, becoming thin and weak. This can limit your ability to receive implants and bridges because these appliances require the foundation of a strong jawbone. During a bone grafting surgery, real or synthetic bone is added to the area of bone loss to strengthen it and prepare it for restorative treatments. 

With years of providing bone grafting in Los Angeles, Dr. Rashti is a leading Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist who will perform this procedure with precision and care.

Types of Bone Grafts

There are several types of dental bone grafts: 

  • Autogenous grafts. These grafts are taken from your own bone and taken from another site on the body. Because they contain living cells, they’re able to encourage bone growth.
  • Allogenic grafts. These grafts come from a human donor. Because they do not require an additional procedure, they can be an appealing option.
  • Xenografts. Xenografts come from an animal source and are typically more affordable than allogenic or autogenous grafts.
  • Alloplastic grafts. These grafts are synthetic and designed to mimic real human bone. Allografts often contain growth factors that allow them to promote new bone growth.

Dr. Rashti will assess your X-rays and medical history to determine which graft will best support your long-term oral health. She specializes in treating patients with dentophobia and will take every step necessary to ease your concerns and ensure you feel comfortable throughout your periodontal surgery. Bone graft procedures can help your long-term oral wellness, and with our expert guidance, you’ll receive the right type for your needs.

Are You a Candidate?

Many situations can cause bone loss and require a bone graft, including:

  • Tooth Extractions. If you have recently undergone a tooth extraction, the bone surrounding the removed tooth will start to atrophy. Adding a bone graft here can keep the area strong, preventing future damage to the jawbone.
  • Implant Preparation. Bone grafts create a solid foundation for your implant. With years of experience providing bone grafting in Beverly Hills, Dr. Rashti has performed this procedure on many patients preparing to receive implants.
  • Advanced Gum Disease. Advanced gum disease can often lead to tooth loss, which can impact the surrounding bone. Bone grafting can help restore the area around the missing tooth, and prepare you for additional restorative treatment.

Before moving forward with a periodontal bone graft, Dr. Rashti will have you in for an initial consultation, during which you’ll discuss your periodontal health goals and explore your options. Unlike other dental issues, the need for a bone graft is typically identified through X-rays or a dental exam rather than recognizable symptoms.

Benefits of Bone Grafting

While nobody looks forward to teeth extractions, our patients have seen excellent results in aesthetics and function following a tooth extraction procedure:

Improved Aesthetics

Even a small amount of missing jawbone can alter the appearance of your face, so adding a bone graft can restore the structure of your jaw and mouth. Plus, bone grafts create a foundation for implants, which can also improve aesthetics.

Increased Function

Thin spots on the jawbone can make everyday activities like chewing and biting uncomfortable. Strengthening the jawbone through grafting can improve your overall function.

Prevent Additional Bone and Tooth Damage

Your teeth and jawbone have a symbiotic relationship, with one supporting the other. Losing just one tooth can weaken your jawbone, ultimately threatening neighboring teeth’s stability. Periodontal bone grafting restores the strength of the jawbone, which helps fortify your remaining teeth.

As a dental bone graft specialist, Dr. Rashti has helped many patients achieve the following benefits through this procedure.

What to Expect During the Procedure

We understand that dental procedures can feel intimidating. Knowing what to expect during your bone graft periodontal surgery can help put some of your concerns at ease. Here’s what you can expect the day of your procedure:

  • Anesthesia: On the day of your procedure, Dr. Rashti will give you local anesthesia to numb the treatment area.
  • Incision: She will then make a small incision in the gum to access the jawbone.
  • Insertion: Next, she’ll insert the graft and secure it in place — typically with titanium screws, pins, or a dissolvable adhesive.
  • Stitching: Finally, she will stitch up the incision site.

Most patients need to give their bone graft six to 12 months to fully heal before proceeding with implants. The actual healing time will depend on the severity of the bone loss. For example, if you’re undergoing bone grafting for periodontal disease, the bone loss might have been more advanced and require additional time to recover from surgery.

I had my cleaning done the first time and I was interested in getting porcelain veneers, so I had a consultation about that and I decided to start with my front teeth and then see if I wanted to do a full mouth. After prepping my teeth it took less than a week for them to be delivered and so far I’m loving the progress, my smile changed dramatically. The doctor is very detail-oriented and professional. Overall I have been impressed with the care I have received and I can’t wait to see the end result!
