Can Dental Implants Work for You?

Take this 15-second quiz to see if dental implants are right for you!

Jaw Bone Loss is Not Hopeless

Have you been told you do not have enough volume in your jaw to support dental implants? Perhaps you have noticed the empty space where missing teeth used to be is shrinking. Bone grafting is often necessary when bone deterioration has occurred as a result of periodontal disease, tooth loss, or oral trauma. This surgery can provide an excellent solution for patients who have experienced bone loss, but are interested in restoring dental function and the aesthetics of their smile with an implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants require a healthy, strong jaw bone in order to create a solid foundation that can support these types of restorations.

How Does Bone Grafting Work?

To determine your candidacy, we will use advanced technology to take 3D digital images and scans of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. During your bone grafting procedure, we remove bone from another area of the body or use a donor source and surgically insert it into your jawbone. During the procedure we may also incorporate Plasma Rich Growth Factors to promote faster healing. Once you have fully healed, you can receive dental implants or other treatments to restore your smile! We may use any of the following in conjunction with your bone grafting procedure:


Sinus Augmentation

Also known as a sinus lift, this procedure is performed when bone loss has occurred in the upper back portion of the jaw. Loss of jaw bone in this area can cause the sinus membrane to sink, leaving no room for a dental implant post. A sinus augmentation lifts the sinus cavity and places bone grafting material below to rebuild the bone’s volume.


Ridge Preservation

If a tooth is lost or extracted and not replaced, the jaw begins to change shape and recede. To preserve the ridge after an extraction, we may place bone grafting material in the socket of the extracted tooth to maintain the height. A ridge augmentation rebuilds a faulty jaw bone if a tooth has been lost or extracted some time ago.



PIEZOSURGERY is a technique that uses ultrasonic vibrations to help cut bone tissue without harming the gums. Because of the precision of the technique, bone can be cut with greater accuracy and has less post-operative bleeding and discomfort. This technique may be used during a sinus lift procedure to ensure more effective healing.


Restoration Costs

You will need a specially designed dental crown, bridge, or denture to attach to your dental implants. We will fully explain your options so you can make an informed decision about the type of restoration you want, as well as the materials used to make the restoration.


Type Of Dental Insurance

We will contact your insurance company to determine your dental implant cost and what parts of your treatment may be covered. To help you afford treatment, we accept all major forms of payment, and we offer CareCredit℠ patient financing. We will be happy to help you explore different financing options to place the cost of treatment within your budget.

Frequently Asked Questions

Uncover the essentials of bone grafting with our concise FAQs. From understanding the procedure to recovery insights, get answers to common questions about bone grafting, ensuring you’re well-informed on this crucial aspect of medical and dental treatments.
What is bone grafting, and why might I need it at North River Dental in Ellenton, FL?
Bone grafting is a procedure that enhances the volume and density of your jawbone. At North River Dental, we may recommend it if you’ve experienced bone loss due to periodontal disease, trauma, or extraction. This helps create a sturdy foundation for dental implants, ensuring long-lasting and stable results.
During the bone grafting procedure at our Ellenton, FL clinic, our experienced dental team will carefully place bone graft material into the deficient areas of your jaw. This can be sourced from your own body, a donor, or synthetic materials. Over time, the graft integrates with your existing bone, promoting natural regeneration and supporting optimal oral health.
We prioritize your comfort at North River Dental in Ellenton, FL. While you may experience some discomfort after the procedure, our team ensures you’re adequately numbed during the process. We also provide post-operative care instructions and may prescribe pain medications to manage any potential discomfort. Our goal is to make your bone grafting experience as pain-free as possible.
Recovery times vary, but most patients can expect several months for the bone graft to fully integrate with their natural bone. During this period, it’s crucial to follow our post-operative care guidelines, which may include a restricted diet and avoiding certain activities. Our team at North River Dental will closely monitor your progress to ensure a smooth and successful recovery.
While bone grafting is generally a safe and routine procedure at our Ellenton, FL clinic, as with any surgical intervention, there are potential risks. These may include infection, graft rejection, or inadequate integration. Our skilled dental professionals will thoroughly assess your oral health and discuss potential risks before recommending bone grafting, ensuring you are well-informed and confident in your decision.
In some cases, immediate implant placement is possible after bone grafting, but it depends on the extent of the graft and your overall oral health. Our skilled professionals at North River Dental will evaluate your specific situation and provide a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your dental goals and ensures the long-term success of your implants.
The cost of bone grafting varies based on factors such as the type of graft material used, the extent of the procedure, and any additional treatments required. During your consultation at North River Dental, our team will provide a detailed treatment plan, including cost estimates and potential financing options to make your essential dental care as accessible as possible.
Coverage for bone grafting depends on your specific dental insurance plan. Our team at North River Dental will assist you in navigating insurance details and work with your provider to maximize your benefits. We prioritize transparency in financial matters and will ensure you have a clear understanding of any potential out-of-pocket expenses associated with your bone grafting procedure.
While the procedure itself does not typically impair your ability to drive, it’s advisable to arrange for a friend or family member to drive you home after bone grafting. This precaution ensures your safety and comfort, allowing you to focus on your recovery. At North River Dental, we prioritize your well-being and recommend taking necessary precautions for a smooth post-operative experience.
Scheduling a consultation for bone grafting at North River Dental is easy. Simply contact our office in Ellenton, FL, and our friendly staff will assist you in setting up an appointment. During the consultation, our experienced dental team will evaluate your oral health, discuss your concerns and goals, and create a personalized treatment plan to restore and enhance your smile.

I got the smile I always wanted! I chose these folks because of all the positive reviews I found on Google. Looks like they’re gonna get another one. Doc Steinberg is the real deal and I will definitely be recommending this office to all my family and friends. I had to make multiple trips due the extent of work required, and I was greeted with a warm smile and friendly service every time. I can’t say enough about the people in this office and how pleasant my experience was. Yes a pleasant experience at the dentist! Go figure.

My husband and I made the decision to try NRD after having some bad experiences at our last dental office. We were both blown away by how welcoming the staff at NRD were. Thank you Bonnie, Vanessa, Dr Raj, and Tayla for making my first exam and cleaning so enjoyable!

This is the best dentist office you could ever go to.They all are great. They treat you so kind, especially Bobbie Jo and the Dr. I was never a fan of going to the dentist as most of us are not, right, but the experience I have had at NRD has changed all that. I enjoy going to the dentist now and you will too, I promise, just give them a call.

I felt very comfortable from the moment I walked in. Kelly was an excellent guide through the entire evaluation. Drs. Delarose and Steinberg were informative, friendly and comforting with my uneasiness at being in a dental office. I plan on coming back and starting my dental journey right here!

When half a tooth fell out unexpectedly, on referral from a friend, I went to North River Dental. I have received what I perceive to be above standard service. So far, I’ve gained a new crown, lost a bad tooth, had a cleaning, and plan for a deep cleaning. All of this was done with the newest of images and diagnostic tools coupled with really friendly and effective professionalism. I definitely recommend this group for anyone wanting help with mouth issues.

11/9/23 1 week ago Dr. Raj finished a root canal on my left upper eye tooth & did a wonderful job. He is known as the root canal specialist. He lets you know what he is doing & why he is doing it. He is very gentle & has a great sense of humor. On Friday of that same week I broke my left upper molar after the office had closed. On Monday morning I called the office and told the receptionist about my broken tooth and they fit me in by 10:00am that day. The whole office staff is great. They’re very accommodating & polite, but I do miss the chocolate chip cookies they used to serve. Niki B.
