Bone Grafts

Implant-Supported Dentures

Like sinus lifts, a bone graft can help prepare your mouth for future work, and it may be required if you do not have enough natural bone structure to support a dental restoration. At Custom Dental Care & Med-Spa, our dentist can offer bone grafts in Tampa, Florida, to patients preparing for a dental implant placement or other treatment. Call 813-876-6930 to learn more and to schedule your visit with Dr. Ward Whitaker.

A bone graft is an oral surgery procedure that may be required if your jawbone is not dense or thick enough. During a bone graft, we will transplant a piece of bone from another area of your jaw or body to your jawbone. While we typically see best results with bone taken from your own body, we can also utilize artificial bone material or bone fragments from a tissue bank if needed. Your jawbone then grows together with the grafted bone tissue, creating a stronger, more stable foundation.

You may need a bone graft if your bone density is insufficient to support a dental implant or other types of treatment. After a tooth is lost or extracted, the jawbone begins to resorb, or deteriorate, at the site of the tooth extraction. The resorption must be corrected before the dental implant is placed. While bone grafts are most commonly needed for implant dentistry, they may also be required for certain types of periodontal therapy when bone has been lost due to gum disease.
