Jawbone Grafting New York: When Jaw Bone Weakens

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2012 AT 2:50 PM  by Dr. Mark Stein

Are you missing several teeth? Have you experienced infection, trauma, gum disease, or had any type of surgery done in your mouth? If so, your jawbone may be weaker than you think. Bone in the jaw can deteriorate over time and become a problem for those seeking dental implants. Dental implants need sufficient bone to hold them in place, and without a strong jaw, this becomes futile. Put all your worries aside however, because Dr. Mark Stein, D.D.S., M. D. has the answer for you. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Stein performs Bone Grafting in New York. By taking excess bone and embedding it into the jaw, you can regain full strength to your mouth.

So where does this extra bone come from, and how does the procedure work? Well, bone can be taken from other places of the mouth, other areas of the body such as the hip, and in some circumstances, specially prepared cadaver bones, or synthetic bone. In addition to this, Board Certified Surgeon, Dr. Stein, may use INFUSE®, a new, advanced protein to promote bone growth. Dr. Stein is one of the first oral surgeons in the United States to use INFUSE®.

Other circumstances for considering Jaw Bone Graft in New York may include, when the jaw isn’t wide enough, or when there is insufficient bone between the upper jaw and sinuses. If the jaw is not wide enough, Dr. Stein may perform a ridge expansion to widen the jaw. When there is inadequate bone between the jaw and the sinuses, Dr. Stein may recommend Sinus Lift Surgery in NY.

We always hear how important strong, healthy bones are, but how often to you think about the bone in your mouth? Let Dr. Stein  keep you smiling, so you can smile with the confidence of a strong, healthy mouth.
