Bone Graft

Bone loss in the jaw can have negative health effects and can prohibit patients from receiving necessary procedures like dental implants

A bone graft can restore your jaw, prevent future problems, and prepare you for other desired procedures. 

Patients throughout the Lakewood, CO, area come to Colorado Premier Dental to receive bone grafts from Dr. Brian J. Polidori. 

Dental Bone Grafting Basics

During bone grafting surgery, Dr. Polidori places grafting material in areas of the jaw where bone loss has occurred. He can transfer tissue from a part of your body that has more than enough bone, or use outside tissue replacements like a synthetic substitute. 

The tissue placed during a graft creates necessary support for your bones and stimulates your body to create new, healthy jaw tissue. The formation of natural bone in areas where bone loss had occurred helps prevent oral deterioration and allows our Lakewood patients to receive the restorative dentistry procedures they desire.  

Risks of Untreated Jawbone Loss

Jawbone loss carries many risks to your oral health and aesthetic features. These include:

Tooth Loss

Discomfort While Chewing

Deteriorating Facial Structure

Inability to Receive Restorations

Wrinkling Around Your Mouth

Tooth Shifting and Loosening

Facial Pain and Headaches

Difficulty Speaking

Why You Might Need Dental Implants

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth with powerful artificial tooth roots that can support dental restorations like bridges, crowns, or dentures. Dr. Polidori is a board-certified implantologist, which means he has the elite skill and extensive experience to properly place implants.

Reasons Lakewood patients come to Dr. Polidori to receive a bone graft then implants include:

  • Implants provide the highest level of stability for restorations like dentures, bridges, and crowns
  • Typical restorations struggle with wear and tear and need to be replaced, while implants are permanent. 
  • Implants protect your jaw and prevent damage to your bone structure that can occur after tooth loss.

We Offer Several Sedation Options


Bone grafting can be performed without putting a patient to sleep, however many patients prefer sedation. We offer nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation, each of which can be tailored to your needs. 

Recovery After Surgery

Most of our patients can return to work or school the day after they receive grafting. Some take an extra day or two off depending on their sedation choice. Some soreness in the bone grafting area is normal and can be managed by following Dr. Polidori's prescriptions. 

In just a week or two, most patients feel completely back to normal. That being said, it typically takes anywhere from three to nine months for bone graft healing to occur in full, allowing you to receive dental implants
