Dental Restorative Group Bone Grafting

A bone graft can strengthen the bone in your jaw and help prepare the site of a missing tooth for a dental implant. Dental Restorative Group may recommend a bone graft to patients for both structural and aesthetic purposes and, depending on the case, may be able to perform it at the same time as the dental implant.

Our practice makes procedures such as a bone graft more comfortable, convenient, and affordable:

  • We ensure before treatment that patients understand our approach, and we conduct procedures as gently as possible, prioritizing care over expediency.
  • Our offices are located throughout Greater Boston—patients can have a bone graft in Cambridge or Belmont—and we are available six days a week for appointments.
  • Dental Restorative Group participates in several insurance networks and helps in the filing process.

To our doctors, a great patient experience is as important as great results. Learn more about our work and our approach.

What Is a Bone Graft?

The durability of a dental procedure depends on a variety of factors. One of the most important is the strength of the jawbone that holds the teeth in place.

If you are receiving a dental implant, for example, the new tooth root that your doctor places will need to form a close bond with the bone in the jaw. This helps it to provide the same function and strength as your natural teeth.

In a bone graft, your doctor will transplant bio-compatible material—typically titanium—to your jawbone. The bone in the area of the surgery will grow around the graft over time, forming a stronger foundation.
