The strength of your jawbone is key to your general oral health. If your jawbone is weak from missing teeth or physical trauma, you may need to get a bone graft so the jaw can properly hold both your natural teeth and dental implants. A bone graft helps to augment and rebuild your jawbone until it is healthy enough to hold an implant. At The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery, this surgery is used to strengthen your mouth before implant surgery to replace missing or weak teeth. Plan a consultation with Dr. Husam Elias at his office in Pasadena, CA to learn more about bone graft surgery.

You may have a weak jawbone if you have oral conditions, like gum disease, or if you had a physical trauma to your face. The jawbone may begin to atrophy if a tooth was missing, and it was either untreated or replaced with removable dentures or a cemented bridge. Bone graft surgery rebuilds the jaw so it can support a dental implant; however, you'll need to be patient with the process. Some procedures can take months to heal, but you will have a stronger, healthier jaw that will not only support your dental implant but also your natural teeth to give you a healthier mouth.

The process of bone grafting surgery will vary based on where the graft comes from and the amount of grafting needed. Your bone graft may be taken from one area of your body, such as your chin, shin, or hip, which is called an autograft. This may be completed in our office with local anesthesia and sedation or in a surgical facility using general anesthesia. Additional graft sources include an allograft that uses bone harvested from another person. A xenograft bone graft is taken from an animal, typically a cow. Another option is a synthetic bone graft known as an alloplast. In your consultative appointment, Dr. Elias will explain your grafting options and help you select the best method.

As soon as the bone graft is ready, Dr. Elias will numb the areas being treated and place an incision through the gum tissue to expose the jawbone. The bone graft will be affixed to your bone with proteins and collagen that stimulate growth in the graft. The incision will be sutured closed and the mouth will be cleaned. In the following 6 – 9 months, the graft should heal into your jawbone, a process known as osseointegration. Within this time, it's important to follow a proper oral care routine with brushing and flossing, plus any additional products recommended by Dr. Elias. He may write a prescription for pain medication or antibiotics for any inflammation or discomfort after the bone graft. You may have follow-up appointments at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery to check your healing and to determine when your jawbone is strong enough for a dental implant.

I was recommend by a friend who got her breast and BBL done by Dr. Elias and I’m so glad I found him! Dr. Elias did such an amazing job with my lip fillers giving me natural results I wanted. I was debating getting them done for over a year because it was hard to find a trusting doctor and a great price. From the moment I walked through the door the staff was very kind and did not feel pressure at all to make any decisions. They took their time explaining to me my different options and made sure all my questions were answered. But not only is he the best cosmetic surgeon, he’s an oral surgeon as well which is perfect because my wisdom teeth need to be removed! We all want the natural results and if your looking for a Doctor who can do that for you, look no further Dr. Elias is the one!

His artistry speaks for itself, and he did a beautiful job on me.It is almost 4 months, and even with his booming business, I have never once felt dismissed when reaching out to him, or his lovely team, about anything big or small. I will forever remain grateful for my results.

My first procedure was Facetite with Dr. Elias. I was able to do the procedure awake on a Friday & was back to work on Monday! I was still swollen but not in pain at all. It’s a minimum invasive procedure to tighten the skin & gets rid of the fat. The staff was really friendly and was able to answer all my questions. I’ve been back many more times for Botox & fillers. Dr. Elias is such a perfectionist and that is exactly what I’m looking for in a Cosmetic Surgeon!
