Understanding the transformative affect bone grafting can have on the function and health of a smile as well as overall facial aesthetics, Dr. William F. Lane and Dr. William M. Lane raise awareness of the causes and treatments for jawbone loss. This team provides innovative oral and maxillofacial surgical care using advanced technologies at their two practice locations.

The most common cause of bone loss in the jaw is due to one or more missing teeth. For the jawbone to remain strong and dense, tooth roots must be present to provide healthy stimulation whenever a person bites and chews. Without teeth, this stimulation stops and results in a continuous loss of bone volume and density. Patients with bone loss may begin to notice other teeth shifting out of place and causing occlusal (bite) changes, crooked teeth, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain, and other problems. If a patient has lost all their teeth, the effects are outwardly noticeable, with facial changes that can give the appearance of premature aging as the cheeks and lips sink inward without support from teeth and bone.

Bone grafting refers to treatments that restore the proper levels of bone in the jaw. Generally, bone grafting is completed as a preliminary procedure three to four months before, or during the same appointment as, implant surgery. Oral surgeons have specialized training in sinus lifts, ridge augmentations, and bone grafting as part of dental implant placement. A sinus lift involves elevating the sinus membrane so bone graft material can be placed beneath, while ridge augmentation refers to building up the contours and volume of an entire jaw ridge. In all instances, the goal of bone grafting treatment is to ensure that one or more dental implants can be safely and securely placed into healthy, dense bone anywhere in the jaw.
