Bone Grafting

Rebuilding a healthy smile requires more than just maintaining healthy teeth. It also entails maintaining healthy gums and a strong jawbone. In Port St Lucie, FL, bone grafting is a vital procedure for restoring and preserving the integrity of the jawbone.

The jawbones play a crucial role in holding teeth in place. However, tooth loss, whether caused by gum disease or decay, can lead to jawbone recession. This poses a significant problem since a healthy jawbone is necessary for successful dental implant placement, denture fitting, or partial denture use.

Bone grafting is a commonly used technique to reconstruct the bone and restore the missing tooth’s socket in order to maintain the alveolar ridge’s width and height. This gum ridge, located either on the roof of the mouth between the upper teeth and the hard palate or at the bottom of the mouth behind the lower teeth, is essential for proper dental functioning.

There are various situations where bone grafting in Port St Lucie is performed, including:

  1. Bone Grafting After an Extraction:
    If you need a tooth extraction, our dedicated team at Coast Dental St. Lucie West in Port St Lucie can perform a simple bone graft during the same visit. By filling the extraction site with freeze-dried human bone granules, resembling sand, we can preserve the bone and prevent resorption. A thin membrane and sutures may be used to secure the area. Healing typically takes four to six weeks, after which we can provide initial treatments for complete or partial dentures. For those seeking a more natural-looking and long-lasting solution, dental implant restorative treatment can commence within four to six months.
  2. Bone Grafting After Mild Bone Loss:
    When a tooth has been missing for an extended period, significant bone resorption may have occurred. In such cases, our experienced dentists will address larger bony defects by utilizing a combination of freeze-dried bone and a portion of your own bone from another section of your mouth or body. A membrane and sutures will be employed to facilitate proper healing and acceptance of the graft by your body. Although the procedure requires two incisions, the use of your own bone increases the likelihood of a successful graft.
  3. Bone Grafting After Extensive Bone Loss:
    Extensive bone loss resulting from periodontal disease or long-term tooth loss calls for more substantial bone grafts. At Coast Dental St. Lucie West, we use a combination of materials, including your own bone, freeze-dried bone from a donor, animal bone, or synthetic bone substitutes, to rebuild the jawbone. The graft acts as a scaffold, promoting the attachment and generation of new bone cells. The healing time varies depending on the extent of the grafting required. Once the area is fully healed, our skilled dentists or specialists can proceed with dental implant placement or denture fabrication, restoring your smile.

Bone grafting in Port St Lucie offers many benefits. By restoring the jawbone’s height and width, you gain more options for replacing missing teeth. Failure to replace a missing tooth can lead to bite problems, cavities, and periodontal disease. Opting for a dental implant, which can last a lifetime, ensures a natural look and feel while preserving the bone and maintaining a youthful jawline. Dental implants can also provide support for bridgework or dentures, significantly enhancing your ability to eat and speak comfortably.

Additionally, bone grafting can improve the fit of dentures by building up the alveolar ridge. Ill-fitting dentures can cause pain and discomfort. Our bone grafting techniques, combined with our expertise in denture placement, guarantee a beautiful and comfortable restoration.

At Coast Dental St. Lucie West, we value your oral health and strive to provide exceptional care. Schedule your appointment today by calling (772) 343-0179. Our dedicated team looks forward to assisting you in achieving the smile you desire through our advanced bone grafting in Port St Lucie.

I’ve been coming to Coast Dental since 2020 and I have always had very thorough cleanings. The dental assistants and staff are friendly and very helpful. They always take the time to educate and have so much patience with me when I ask all my questions. Lesly and Dr Gomez are super friendly and make my appointment very enjoyable. I don’t know how many other people can say that when they go to the dentist but you won’t be disappointed if you come here!

I’m never going to another dental office for as long as coast dental exists. I had an appointment for myself and my mom, trying to kill 2 birds with 1 stone considering my busy schedule. I had to take my 2y/o with us since I didn’t have someone to watch him. He decided that it was the day to drive me crazy and started throwing a tantrum, wouldn’t stop crying. I told them to cancel my appointment and just keep my mom’s. The office manager and one the hygienist, offered to take my son so I can get my things done. I was a little skeptical cz I don’t like to hand my son to people I don’t know. He went to the lady with no problem and sit quietly to play the whole time. She was so sweet and caring with him. It’s the sweetest thing I’ve seen someone in a doctor office do. I manage a Medical office myself, I’ve help parents with kids, giving them candies but that’s about it. Thank you so much for your kindness.

I was very nervous about going to a dentist. My 1st visit there was amazing. Dr. Gomez was so friendly and very professional. My 2nd visit where I had 5 extractions was the best experience I've ever had with a dentist. Dr. Gomez and his assistant were very pleasant and very professional. I will be continuing my dental work here.
