SMART Bone Grafting - Cedarhurst, NY

Be S.M.A.R.T. When Preparing for Implants

Why Your Jawbone is Important

Your jawbone serves a crucial role in the health of your mouth and teeth. Your jawbone holds your teeth firmly in place and provides structure to your facial shape. When you experience bone loss, your teeth can become loose or potentially fall out, and it can limit your candidacy for dental implants. Bone grafting is a procedure used to restore health and structure to the mouth after bone loss has occurred. At our Cedarhurst, NY office Drs. Michael Klein and Allon Waltuch offer an approach called S.M.A.R.T.™ bone grafting. This technique is proven to provide enhanced bone regeneration with less discomfort, swelling and complications. We often utilize the S.M.A.R.T. bone grafting solution as a part of your dental implant treatment plan.

Why Choose S.M.A.R.T. Bone Grafting

Dr. Klein, Dr. Waltuch and our team have adopted this revolutionary technique to provide superior services to our patients. This bone grafting approach only requires a small incision to perform—no gum tissue removal, screws or gingival membranes required. The procedure is performed predictably with minimal chance of complications developing. This changes the typical bone grafting procedure by making it less invasive, easier for patients to heal and gets them to their implant treatment faster. The bone graft material itself is simply a small sample of bone taken from either you or a donor source and converted into fine granules. These granules are then packed into the area where bone loss occurred and allowed to heal.

  • Minimally invasive bone grafting
  • Only a small incision needed
  • Can treat complex cases with fewer procedures
  • Less risk of soft tissue complications

How Our Procedures Work

For many patients in need of dental implants and bone grafting, the healing time is important. With the S.M.A.R.T. bone grafting technique, your bone can heal quicker and with less damage to your soft tissues. The faster the bone heals, the sooner you will get to a new smile! We perform bone grafting treatments when your jawline has receded bone, called ridge augmentation. In the case of upper molar teeth that are missing, we will have to perform a sinus lift procedure. This is an advanced bone grafting case that requires accessing the sinus cavity, gently adjusting the sinus membrane and placing bone graft material underneath. Once healed, the area will have sufficient bone to have implants placed and you’ll be able to experience the restorative effects dental implants can have on your smile.
