Bone Grafting in Cary & Fuquay-Varina NC

Major & Minor Bone Grafting

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.

Please read some of our dental bone graft Patient Reviews below.

Major Bone Grafting

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 Testimonial from Mike H

Dr. Mahal and his staff are absolutely the best! This was my first extraction of a tooth and prep for a implant. When I arrived the assistant got me right back and prepared me for the procedure. I remember speaking to Dr Mahar and then I asked him when we were going to start and his assistant said we are done! Wow! I never knew or felt anything! Afterwards I had no pain in recovery and he was so nice as he called to check on me later that day. I can say I was apprehensive going in but I am sold! I look forward to finishing my treatment in 3 months! I recommend this practice to anyone who needs an oral surgeon! Thank you Dr. Mahar and your staff! You are the best!

Patient Testimonial from Hal J

Dr. Mahar was just great. I don't usually write reviews but anyone needing their services would do well to see Dr. Mahar and Staff. He worked quickly and confidently to remove a broken wisdom tooth and started an implant on another missing tooth all at the same time. His prices are VERY competitive and I had very little pain or discomfort at all. I experienced very little bleeding and I believe it's because he did such a good job. He also removed my daughter's wisdom teeth a couple years ago as she experienced the same great service. Highly recommend !!

Patient Testimonial from Judi C

Thankful that I went here for my procedure. Always a pleasant experience. He did an extraction and an implant. Each procedure explained clearly. Just the fact that he calls his patients after their procedure is very special. I have never had a doctor do that. Thanks to all the Staff and Dr. Mahar for everything.

Patient Testimonial from Michelle P

Dr. Mahar is a godsend! I’ve struggled with migraines the last several months, unsure what the cause may be. Little did I know, these migraines were a direct result of an embarrassingly decayed tooth I wasn’t ready to face, due to a horrendous dental history. I opted out of sedation, wanting to be aware of what was happening in the room and didn’t feel pressured to go under. Dr. Mahar and team worked in unison, talking me thru every pontentially scary sound coming from my mouth and explaining the necessity of a bone graft as a solid foundation in preparation for my future implant. The extraction was pain-free, and surprisingly, the injections didn’t phase me as he distracted me with pleasant conversation. I felt safe and well taken care of. Never once did I feel embarrassed or discriminated against because of my dental history. To follow up, I received a call and then a text message to inquire about how I was feeling, encouraging me to call him directly with any questions or concerns. My stitches were artistically placed and allowed me to go right back to work without a fuss and no nasty “post dental work mouth.” Anyone in search of a skilled AND personable oral surgeon, South Wake Oral Surgedy is my only recommendation. Dr. Mahar, thank you, thank you, thank you! Here’s to a great night’s sleep and no more migraines! I am looking so forward to my upcoming implant and am in awe of the instant relief.

Patient Testimonial from Matthew T

I can not say enough about this place. I had 4 wisdom teeth removed today. The staff were very professional and caring. Dr. Mahar has already followed up with me this evening. If you need oral surgery this is the place to go!
