The best source of bone for your graft is your own bone tissue from elsewhere in your body. Bone can be grafted from the chin, the back of the lower jaw, the hip and the tibia. Bone taken from your own body is the most viable and has faster healing times when compared to alternatives. In many cases, a combination of artificial bone substitutes and your natural bone is used. In any bone grafting procedure, the grafted bone provides an anchor and stimulus for the existing bone to grow onto, eventually providing an environment suitable for the placement of implants.

One of our doctors is always on call and can be reached in case of a dental emergency. There are several types of dental emergencies that can occur, and all have different remedies. If the emergency ever involves swelling that narrows the airway, swells the tongue, or limits opening, the best place to go is the emergency room before calling the dentist. If the injury caused the tooth to come out in one piece (it is avulsed), place it in a glass of cold milk and call your dentist immediately. The quicker the tooth is replanted back into the original place, the better the chances for it to successfully become reattached to the periodontal ligament. If milk is not available, salt water or saliva are the next best options. If a tooth is broken, always save the piece that was lost to show to the dentist. If the area is sharp, you may consider putting a piece of wax over the tooth to protect the tissues nearby until you are able to see your dentist. If a crown is lost, attempt to put it back in place and call your dentist immediately. Regardless of the situation, always call us or email us to find out what is the best course of action. If you are traveling out of the immediate area or even out of the country, you can call or email us to find out if we have any recommendations for offices to visit in the area you are traveling in.
