During a bone grafting procedure, Dr. Amir HagShenas will take a sample of bone from you or a donor source and convert it into bone granules, similar in texture and appearance to sand. These granules are then placed at the site of bone deterioration, just under the gum tissue. During bone grafting procedures, we utilize guided tissue regeneration techniques to ensure that the graft material heals in the proper place and the gum tissue does not interfere. The bone granules will fuse to your existing jaw bone to create a solid structure that looks even within your mouth and is capable of supporting a dental implant. For those concerned about discomfort during the placement of the graft material, we offer effective sedation techniques to alleviate fears and sensations of discomfort.
