Tooth loss and facial trauma can cause jawbone deterioration. Without treatment, jawbone atrophy can worsen, affecting your facial features.
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that can increase the density of the bone in preparation for dental implants and other treatments.
Dr. Gregory E. Anderson performs bone grafting at our Logan, UT, and Garland offices to enhance and protect the oral health of our patients.
How Does a Bone Graft Work?
Benefits of Bone Grafting
With Our Oral Surgeon Serving Logan and Beyond
Restore Your Candidacy for Implants
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth with crowns, bridges, and dentures. In order to qualify for implants, patients must have sufficient bone left in their jaw. By creating a solid foundation, bone grafting can restore your candidacy for dental implants even if you have insufficient bone tissue.
Improve Your Oral Health
A bone graft protects against jawbone atrophy by preserving existing bone tissue and regenerating what was lost. When a tooth is removed, a graft can also be placed at the same time to prevent the collapse of the socket and maintain oral health.
Enjoy Outstanding Success Rates
If you have suffered atrophy in your jaw, bone grafting is a tried and true solution. The procedure offers remarkable success rates. In fact, research indicates that implants placed in grafted bone are just as successful as those placed in natural bone.
A Bone Graft Is Just the Beginning Set a Healthy Foundation for a Smile Makeover

Types of Bone Grafts
Also referred to as ridge preservation, a socket graft is usually performed at the same time as an extraction. When a tooth is removed, there is an empty socket left behind. Without a graft, the socket is more likely to collapse, leaving an indentation in the gums. Dr. Anderson places socket grafts to preserve the ridge and prevent bone loss.
If the teeth have been missing for a prolonged period of time, the jawbone can shrink significantly. Often, this means there is not sufficient bone remaining to accommodate implants. Ridge augmentation uses new bone to add height, width, and density to the dental ridge, making it possible for Dr. Anderson to place implants into a stable foundation.
When tooth loss or disease affects the upper jaw, the maxillary sinuses can drop down and invade the space once occupied by teeth roots, preventing you from safely undergoing implant treatment. During sinus lift surgery, Dr. Anderson raises the sinus membrane back into its proper position and places a bone graft in the remaining space.
A Decade of Exemplary Surgical Care
"About 10 years ago Dr Anderson was recommended to me by my dentist, and I won’t go anywhere else if I have any choice at all. I have gone to him for emergency and non emergency visits and he has taken great care of me each and every time." David Baker
What to Expect During Your Surgery in Logan or Garland
Dr. Anderson is a board-certified oral surgeon and a Diplomate of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
When Can I Receive My Dental Implant?
While each person heals at their own rate, it usually takes at least four months for the treatment area to be strong enough to support a dental implant. However, some people may need as long as a year for the graft to fuse with the bone and improve tissue density.
Dr. Anderson will schedule regular visits so he can monitor your tissue healing and decide when you can move forward with the dental implant procedure. Once you've been approved, Dr. Anderson can perform your dental implant placement surgery at our Logan or Garland offices serving the residents of northern Utah.
Your dental implants can support restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures for a beautiful smile and strong bite.

Dental Implants Are Worth the Wait
Though a bone graft can add months to the treatment process, they are necessary for patients who want dental implants but don't have enough bone tissue to support them. Without a bone graft, implant placement can fail. Though a bone graft lengthens the treatment timeline, many patients at our Logan and Garland offices say the benefits of their dental implants are worth the wait. Dental implants can:
- Improve jawbone health
- Improve your bite
- Improve your smile and confidence
- Stabilize neighboring teeth
- Prevent bone loss
- Avoid facial sagging and premature aging

How Dr. Anderson Earned Prestigious Board Certification
Receiving a bone graft, dental implants, and implant-supported restorations is a major investment in your health, function, appearance, and confidence. Selecting the right surgeon is priceless.
Thankfully, board certification denotes a surgeon who has proven themselves to have truly heightened skill, knowledge, and judgment. Dr. Anderson earned board certification from the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
First, our surgeon passed a complex Qualifying Examination. This 300-question test spans 10 subject areas to evaluate surgical competency. The next step was an Oral Certifying Examination that tested Dr. Anderson's knowledge and judgment across 12 different surgical cases.
Our Surgeon Is a Skilled Educator We Focus on Empowering Patients
It is very important to Dr. Anderson that his Logan and Garland patients understand why a procedure is necessary and what benefits it will bring to their life.
His advanced knowledge, proven through board certification, allows him to break down complex procedures into easily understandable terms. Dr. Anderson is always happy to answer any bone grafting or implant question you may have.
Comprehensive Care for a Healthy, Beautiful Smile
If a patient has a deeply decayed or damaged tooth in their jaw, we may be able to remove it and perform bone grafting in the same procedure. Dr. Anderson can safely perform an extraction while using sedation to ensure that you remain comfortable throughout your procedure.
A dental implant acts as an artificial tooth root, fusing to your bone in a process called osseointegration. This dentistry solution secures a dental restoration in place, leading to a smile that looks completely natural.
Once your implant is in place, your dentist can take impressions of your teeth to craft your custom restoration and complete your smile. Crowns can replace a single tooth, bridges can replace a few consecutive teeth, and dentures can replace a full set of teeth.
