Bone Grafting for Dental Implants

Dental implants offer amazing capabilities toward rebuilding your natural smile. However, patients must have a sufficient amount of surrounding bone structure to support the implant successfully. Since the dental implant is inserted into the jawbone to act as the artificial tooth root, the jawbone needs to have enough density and height to hold the implant in place. It also must provide long-term stability for the prosthetic tooth or teeth.

At Town Center Dental of LaGrange, we help patients who are otherwise disqualified for dental implants due to poor bone density. Dr. Paes is a skilled implant dentist who performs bone grafting in the comfort of our Lagrangeville office. We are proud to be a modern dental practice that offers a full menu of restorative dental treatments for those with missing teeth, which include the most advanced services in dental implants. Helping patients qualify for dental implants using bone grafting can be a life-changing gift for their oral health and quality of life.

Helping Your Jawbone Support a Dental Implant

Your jawbone maintains its structure through the natural pressure and stimulation of chewing. When a tooth is missing, there is no tooth root to provide this stimulation. Consequently, the jawbone atrophies or resorbs into the body. The jawbone can deteriorate as a result of severe gum disease, trauma or prior tooth extraction. Bone loss can even occur while wearing traditional dentures that are not retained by dental implants.

Bone grafting is the procedure of choice to rebuild the necessary bone to support a dental implant. At Town Center Dental of LaGrange, we will carefully explain your procedure and tell you what you can expect as far as healing time and recovery. Bone grafting is a simple and effective procedure that involves replacement or augmentation of the missing bone around the teeth. Bone grafting can be performed using an autogenous graft (a patient’s own bone), an allograft (cadaver bone) or xenograft (non-human bone source). Dr. Paes will determine what type of graft is best for your unique needs and preferences. At Town Center Dental of LaGrange, bone grafting is completed with the highest form of accuracy, using advanced 3D Cone Beam imaging to help guide Dr. Paes skilled surgical hand.

I needed to change dentists and Town Center Dental was recommended by a friend. It was the best decision I made... Dr Paes is amazing, he explained everything that he did and was very gentle. My dental hygienist was amazing and the staff was friendly and accommodating. You couldn't ask for more from a dental office. I highly recommend this group...

I had not been to the dentist in quite some time and will never miss another visit after receiving the best service ever. Aleena was my hygienist and was absolutely wonderful. There was a lot of cleaning that needed to be done and she made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. She was extremely informative and it was a great learning experience. I would recommend TCD to anyone and look forward to my next visit. Thank you Aleena!

Everyone in this office were very friendly and knowledgeable. As a new patient I felt they took their time to know me and did a great job. I would highly recommend converting to town center dental. From the staff in the front to Dr Paes and his excellent hygienist Sandy I find everyone to be warm and caring.

Dr. Wilkie Paes and his assistant Lea work well as a team. They are very personable and professional. I had a replacement crown and a new crown done together. Dr. Paes walks you through the process. The professionalism, quality and workmanship are impeccable. From the moment you walk in the door you will find the entire staff are very pleasant and professional. The practice has the latest technology. If you are looking for a dental office....... look no further! Highly Recommended!

Had a great experience at Town Center Dental today. Started with a warm greeting by the friendly front desk staff. Then, MaryEllen, my hygienist, was thorough, friendly and explained each and every step of the process from x-rays to my final cleaning. Dr. Paes then did a complete exam. He was calming, communicative and highly informative. Dr. Paes and Town Center Dental is now the dental office for me any my family.

Mitch G.

This dentistry office is absolutely incredible. I do not like going to any doctor's office and I was not intimated by any staff member and especially Dr. Paes, the dentist. He thoroughly explained all the procedures and payment plans. The prices are VERY reasonable for someone without insurance. He spent a large amount of time with me discussing insurance and dental maintenance. The television screen of your teeth was pretty cool! Sunglasses to wear to dim the light was a nice too. Great dentistry office!!!
