What is Bone Grafting?

Dr. Bowman’s goal with bone grafting is to increase the amount of bone tissue in your mouth so that your oral health is preserved for the future.

Bone grafting is also used to prepare a jaw for other procedures, for it provides a stable foundation for restorations to be implemented into.

How it Works

After planning the procedure and reviewing your personal oral health needs. Dr. Bowman will use bone tissue, from your chin, hip, or a synthetic source, and attach it to your jaw bone. After the bone is attached it will need a few months to heal before any further procedures can be done. After some time the new bone will fuse to your jaw and simply be part of your jaw, as if you were born with it. Then you will be ready for dental implants, crowns, or other oral procedures depending on what you need. Dr. Bowman is educated on the latest procedure tactics to ensure the successful integration of the new bone.
