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.
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.
Major Bone Grafting
Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease, or injuries. 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.

With how my teeth are sitting and due to my cardiology issues, Dr Lines made sure to cover everything and showed me exactly what he was going to do and why. I made the appointment to get my last two wisdom teeth out. He told me th steps he was going to do and I felt comfortable with the plan. I will be back in Maymfor my extractions and I feel comfortable about it.

The staff and Dr Lines were so great! Getting a tooth pulled is not my idea of a good time but everyone was so friendly. I was in and out with no problems. If I every need another tooth removed I would go back to see Dr Lines.
