Bone Grafting | Pewaukee, WI

When Is Bone Grafting Necessary?

Missing teeth over a period of time can cause your jaw bone to atrophy, or resorb. This often results in poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for the placement of dental implants as well as long-term shifting of remaining teeth and changes to facial structure. Most patients, in these situations, are not candidates for dental implants.

Fortunately, today we have the ability to grow bone where it is needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, but it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.

Bone Grafting Process

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease, or injuries. The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw, hip or tibia (below the knee).

Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw. In addition, special membranes may be utilized that dissolve under the gum to protect the bone graft, as well as encourage bone regeneration. This is called guided bone regeneration, or guided tissue regeneration.

Major bone grafts are typically performed to repair defects of the jaws. These defects may arise as a result of traumatic injuries, tumor surgery, or congenital defects.

Large defects are repaired using the patient’s own bone. This bone is harvested from a number of different areas depending on the size needed. The skull (cranium), hip (iliac crest), and lateral knee (tibia), are common donor sites. These procedures are routinely performed in an operating room and require a hospital stay.

Patient Review by John L

I'm on the road to new found health and confidence. This is all thanks to Dr. McAboy and his wonderful staff. My breakdown is simple. The office: clean and organized. The staff: felt like friends and family. The knowledge: second nature. Doctor and assistant even had the courtesy and awareness to help calm me with words and gesture. I can't begin to explain how comforting it was to have you say "I'm sorry bud. You'll be ok" and for your assistant to just put her hand to the forearm during the procedure. It spoke volumes on the character and professionalism of your practice. Real people. Real comfort. Thank you again!

Patient Review by Barb H

My daughter just had her impacted wisdom teeth extracted June 2019. Dr. McAboy was excellent from having 'chairside' manners, being personable, thorough in diagnosing something my daughter's regular dentist did not catch, in making my daughter feel relaxed and assured regarding pain before the procedure to explaining what to expect and do after the procedure. Staff was amazing, easy going and personable and were great at their jobs. They scheduled us quick and took care of contacting insurance last minute. No waiting. Office was clean and relaxing. Highly recommend.

Patient Review by Cassandra W

What an amazing experience for the situation. I had never had IV sedation before so I was a little nervous. This staff was so friendly and kind! More than once they had reassured me I was in good hands and would be looked after. It’s more than I could have asked for or expected with this extraction. It was so quick and I felt like I had all resources needed for proper care when leaving.

Patient Review by Connie S

I appreciated being an active participant in my procedure and treatment. Options for anesthetic were explained so I could make an informed decision based on my preferences. Dr. McAboy explained each aspect of the procedure as it took place. He also provided specific suggestions for working through the discomfort associated with the extraction and potential after effects. All my interactions with the clinic staff and Dr. McAboy were highly satisfactory and I recommend without reservation.

Dear Dr. McAboy, My heart just keeps thanking you and all your lovely assistants. With a chronically ill daughter, all extra money has always gone for hospital bills. My teeth have been last on the list. Because of your kindness, I have started my way back to better oral health. Sincerest Thanks Patty J

Patient Review by Brian T

I was involved in an accident back in September of 2015 in Northern WI and was at a loss at where to go in the Lake Country Area so I Googled local and after a call or 2 leading to rude people that wanted nothing to do with helping I came into contact with Rainy which was a blessing. Rainy not only made this difficult situation easy but also recommend other doctors to deal with my needed procedures they could not. I have had several appointments here and it's always the same OUTSTANDING what a great experience! Although I hope I will never need to go back I will and have already recommended them to others. Thanks again for everything it was truly a pleasure! Brian Tolzman

Patient Review by NATALIAH R

I was super super nervous to get my wisdom teeth out. Dr. McAboy respected that I wanted to know as little as possible about what they would be doing to my mouth. He came in, got me started with the iv sedation before I freaked out and jump from the chair. :(. When everything was done and left the room, I had no recollection of the procedure. It's been a day after surgery but I feel pretty good, nothing like my friends told me was going to be. I'd definitely recommend this Oral Surgeon and the assistant was extremely sweet and caring.
