Bone Grafting

Dental implants require a sufficient amount of bone structure to be successful. The surrounding bone must have enough width and height to stabilize the implant and provide the most effective long-term tooth replacement. Many patients who have lost one or more teeth are told that they are not candidates for dental implants because their jawbone has atrophied or reabsorbed. This can occur over time as a result of gum disease, trauma or previous extractions.

By restoring this loss of bone volume with a bone grafting procedure, patients are able to take advantage of the remarkable benefits of dental implants. At Marietta Smiles, we are proud to serve patients with excellence in implant dentistry, as well as general dentistry. We are qualified and equipped to complete your dental implants from start to finish, including performing bone grafting for patients who need it prior to their implant surgery.

Bone grafting can repair an implant site that was otherwise incapable of supporting a dental implant. Bone grafting is the replacement or augmentation of missing bone around the teeth. There are three types of bone graft procedures: autogenous (using a patient's own bone), allograft (using cadaver bone), and xenograft (non-human bone source). Your type of bone graft will be determined based on your specific needs and preferences.

Dental implants have the ability to look, feel and function most like your natural teeth. If bone loss is preventing you from taking advantage of dental implants, ask about your candidacy for bone grafting. We are happy to explain the procedure in detail and help you make an informed decision about the future of your smile.

To learn more about bone grafting for dental implants, please contact Marietta Smiles today. We believe that every patient deserves a confident smile, regardless of their age or dental history.

I have not been to a dentist in over 13+ years. They made me feel at home & really helped me stay clam during my process. I was in need of a "deep clean" and I can tell you it was just performed yesterday and today I feel NOTHING.. Not sore or bleeding gums. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

I have been visiting the staff at Marietta Smiles for nearly 2 years and I have experience great service from them all. They are always so friendly and accommodating to my needs. I didn't feel ashamed about my initial visit with them (it had been nearly 10 years since my last dentist appt and my teeth were in bad shape) and they completely made me feel relaxed. They completely transformed my smile and improved the health of my teeth and gums. I experience little to pain when getting exams and cleaning. They have definitely taken the fear out of going to an appt, if anything I look forward to going! Thank you again to Dr. Nunez and the lovely staff at Marietta Smiles.

The front desk people can make or break your experience with a dentist. The front desk people here are awesome. They take care of everything and don't mind if you change an appt.

AMAZING The experience started when I called to see if they could help me with an "emergency". Liz was empathetic and listened to me about what was going on. She was able to fit me in to be seen. Once I got there, I was greeted by Shannon who made sure I did not have any questions prior to being seen (definitely a better experience when the patient doesn't feel like they are bothering the front desk ...) What a great start to an unfortunate reason for being seen. I did not even have to wait ... I arrived early to fill out the paperwork and I was barely done and they called my name. Laura and Dr Singh were a pleasure. They took their time to explain everything to me, often repeating the same information to make sure I understood my options. They never once "forced a recommendation" for what to do. They let me make the choice (BIG Fan of this). At every step of the process, of the root canal (normally an awful thing to face), they made sure I was informed and comfortable. Often asking if I had any pain as they were doing the work. As much as this may sound crazy, I actually enjoyed myself. All of the staff was accommodating, funny, professional and truly cared about the patient and what they do. I have so many positive things to say about this practice. I will recommend Dr Singh and his staff to anyone who will listen.
