    Bone Grafting

    What Is Bone Grafting

    Bone grafting is a major surgical procedure that builds up the lost bone structure using a natural or synthetic graft. When you lose a tooth due to decay, gum disease, or oral injury, the bone around the area starts to resorb. With the passage of time, your jawbone may become thin or flattened in the area of tooth loss.

    This may reduce your eligibility for dental implants because they require a thick bone to support them. With bone grafting in St. John’s, NL, we have made it easier for patients with bone loss to receive permanent tooth replacement with implants. Our experienced prosthodontist perform this procedure with utmost precision, ensuring the best outcome after treatment.

    From the moment that I first met Dr. Chedella at his dentist chair, I knew I was in good hands. I had implants started in another country but not finished due to the pandemic. Dr. Chedella did a perfect job in completing the procedure. After waiting 20 months in limbo, I can't thank you enough Dr. Chedella.

    ~ Ken Wong

    Nice friendly staff. The doctor gave practical, easy advice on every day changes I could make to help my TMJ problem - and it worked! One of the few specialists I’ve seen in years who I didn’t feel was trying to push an expensive device or unnecessary procedure on me - it was refreshing.

    ~ C Payne

    What to Expect From Bone Grafting Surgery in St. John’s, NL

    First, you will have a detailed consultation with our prosthodontist, who will examine your jawbone thickness. We will also perform dental X-rays to assess your bone in the missing teeth region. If you are a good candidate for bone grafts, we will discuss the treatment details.

    On the day of your appointed surgery, we will start by injecting local anesthesia to numb your teeth and surrounding tissues. We will then place a small incision over the gumline to expose your jawbone.

    Depending on your needs, we may derive a bone graft from your own body or another donor and place it in the area of bone loss.
    We may also add tissue regeneration factors to promote the production of healthy bone. After the treatment, we will close the incision line with sutures and provide post-op care instructions.
