Dental Bone Grafting

Major & Minor Bone Grafting

Missing teeth over a period of time can cause your jaw bone to atrophy, or resorb. This often results in poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for the placement of dental implants as well as long term shifting of remaining teeth and changes to facial structure. Most patients, in these situations, are not candidates for dental implants.

Fortunately, today we have the ability to grow bone where it is needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, but it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.

We invite you to read about dental bone grafting, and how specific procedures can benefit your particular dental needs. Dr. Ciuci and Dr. Perrone will create a custom diagnosis and treatment plan for each patient.

Major Bone Grafting

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease, or injuries. The bone is obtained from either a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw, hip or tibia (below the knee).

Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw. In addition, special membranes may be utilized that dissolve under the gum to protect the bone graft, as well as encourage bone regeneration. This is called guided bone regeneration, or guided tissue regeneration.

Major bone grafts are typically performed to repair defects of the jaws. These defects may arise as a result of traumatic injuries, tumor surgery, or congenital defects. Large defects are repaired using the patient’s own bone. This bone is harvested from a number of different areas depending on the size needed. The skull (cranium), hip (iliac crest), and lateral knee (tibia), are common donor sites. These procedures are routinely performed in an operating room and require a hospital stay.

Patient Review by Veronica (Ronnie) P

I have had three out of my four daughters wisdom teeth pulled by Dr. Ciucci, and they had no problems at all; Dr. Ciucci and his staff are excellent, they made the girls feel at ease and their recovery was minimal with following the instructions given after surgery. I see how great Lisa Molyneux is with all the patients and their parents and sets them at ease. We have one more daughter that may need her wisdom teeth pulled and I know she would be in good hands with Dr. Ciucci and his team. I myself have been a patient to Dr. Ciucci and he gets those teeth out in no time with great results. The office operates with the upmost professionalism and I would recommend if anyone has to have teeth pulled, this is the place to go; just remember take care of your teeth while you have them.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Ciuci and his office staff in both the Milford and Derby locations. The entire experience has been handled with my understanding of each step in the process as well as complete comfort. Dr. Ciuci and ALL of his office staff are professional, compassionate, and kind. My experience has been smooth and mostly pain free.
