If you’ve lost a tooth due to decay, gum disease, or trauma, your jawbone may be too weak to be able to support dental implants.
Dr. Ryan K. Austin performs bone grafting to create a solid foundation for dental implants and restore your smile and oral health.

How Does the Procedure Work?
A bone graft is a common dental surgery that allows your dentist or oral surgeon to rebuild jaw tissue in preparation for dental implants using graft material. Missing teeth causes the jawbone to lose volume and shrink over time, resulting in bone loss. A dental implant requires a rock-solid foundation that it can fuse with and use to support restorations.
What Are the Benefits of Bone Grafting?
Boost ConfidenceA bone graft begins the process of replacing a missing tooth, restoring your confidence in your smile. Dr. Austin uses advanced grafting material and cutting-edge techniques to achieve unbeatable results.
Maintain Jaw HealthMissing teeth cause the jawbone to deteriorate over time, changing your facial structure and making you look older than you are. A bone graft rebuilds loss tissue and prevents bone atrophy in the future, preserving your appearance.

What Is the Cost of Bone Grafting?

Dr. Austin believes that each patient deserves access to the dental care they need and is always open to working with you and your budget.
What to Expect during the Procedure
What to Expect after the Procedure
Your body recognizes the bone graft material and will begin to regenerate new bone. This causes the jawbone to become stronger over time throughout the healing process. Eventually, the new bone replaces the grafting material entirely, creating a rock-solid foundation for implant placement at our South Ogden or Brigham City dental offices.
Frequently Asked Questions About Bone Grafting
Do I really need dental implants later?
Yes. Dental implants provide the jawbone with the stimulation it needs to remain healthy. A bone graft builds up the site so that the implant posts have sufficient material to graft to. Once dental implants are placed, they act as artificial tooth roots to support the existing and new bone material to prevent further bone loss. They also support restorations to restore your oral function and fill in the gaps for a beautiful smile.
What is an allograft?
An allograft is a type of bone graft that uses graft material from a cadaver. The material is typically processed using a freeze-dry method before being used for surgery.
Will insurance cover bone grafting?
In most cases, dental insurance will at least partially cover the bone graft procedure, but this will vary by plan and provider. During your consultation at our South Ogden practice, we will verify your coverage to maximize your benefits and give you time to accurately plan and budget before your treatment.
