WHAT IS A DENTAL BONE GRAFT?

Our Select Bone Grafting Services

Dr. Wagner may perform a ridge augmentation to reshape your bone to its natural appearance, structure, and esthetics following a tooth extraction. The idea is not only to restore your health, but also to make you look like you!

Jaw Bone

Bone loss in your upper jaw carries an additional complication that lower jawbone loss doesn’t—sinus cavity collapse. With a sinus lift Dr. Wagner can put your sinus back into place, gently lifting the sinus floor and placing bone graft material underneath.

Types of Bone Grafting Materials

Depending on your unique case, we offer a variety of tissues to restore your jawbone.

Autogenous

Dr. Wagner can rebuild your deteriorated jawbone using bone samples from your own body. She inserts the new bone material into the area of recession. The bone graft will fuse permanently with the existing bone after a time, reconstituting your bone volume.

Allograft

If you don’t have a suitable bone graft site on your body—or if you prefer to leave all your bone intact—Dr. Wagner can use grafts from a human donor. She doesn’t use bone grafting materials from animals or artificial sources.

AlloDerm®

As another option, Dr. Wagner can use an acellular dermal matrix (ADM) such as AlloDerm®. This mesh-like material is also derived from human donors and leaves all of your existing healthy tissues untouched.

Guided, Advanced Healing

We are dedicated to ensuring your jawbone reaches proper form, function and health. In order to ensure your bone grafting treatment site heals properly and holds long-term, we offer guided bone regeneration (GBR) techniques and advanced healing protocols.

This collagen membrane provides a barrier for your bone grafts and enables Dr. Wagner to reconstruct the distinctive shape of your jawline.

A type of cell membrane, this allows for cellular attachment during bone grafting in Chambersburg, PA. In other words, it helps bone graft material hold firmly after placement.

Dr. Wagner uses this highly durable membrane to keep gum tissue separate from bone tissue during bone regeneration, allowing the bone to heal unimpeded.

Leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin (LPrF) can also be used to speed up the healing process by stimulating new tissue growth.

Used in combination with allograft, these titanium screws give bone graft material room to heal and reduce the likelihood of graft resorption.

Made from proteins present in early tooth development, this topical gel can stimulate the growth of new bone cells.

Plasma-rich growth factors (PrGF) provide a natural healing option. We isolate the growth factors of your blood by spinning a sample in a centrifuge. We then introduce them into the affected site. This forms a protective layer—like a scab does to a wound—and promotes tissue regrowth.
