About Bone Grafting

Eastern Oklahoma Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery – Owasso & Broken Arrow

What is Bone Grafting?

Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies and is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for the placement of dental implants. In these situations, most patients are not candidates for the placement of dental implants.

With bone grafting we now have the opportunity to not only replace bone where it is missing, but we also have the ability to promote new bone growth in that location. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.

We provide unsurpassed quality in a compassionate environment of professionalism and clinical excellence. Call us Today!

Types of Bone Grafts

Autogenous Bone Grafts


Allogenic Bone


Xenogenic Bone


Both allogenic and xenogenic bone grafting have an advantage of not requiring a second procedure to harvest your own bone, as with autografts. However, because these options lack autograft’s bone-forming properties, bone regeneration may take longer than with autografts, and have a less predictable outcome.

Bone Graft Substitutes

As a substitute to using real bone many synthetic materials are available as safe and proven alternatives, including:

Demineralized Bone Matrix (DBM)
Demineralized Freeze-Dried Bone Allograft (DFDBA)


Graft Composites


Bone Morphogenetic Proteins


Synthetic materials also have the advantage of not requiring a second procedure to harvest bone, reducing risk and pain. Each bone grafting option has its own risks and benefits. Drs. Segraves, Johnson, Evans, Trammell or Lander will determine which type of bone graft material best suited to your particular needs.
