Dental Bone Graft
At Svetlana Dental & Esthetic, we use dental bone grafting before tooth implantation if a deficiency in the width or height of the alveolar ridge has been identified. We safely and painlessly integrate the bone transplant to create a strong foundation for the placement of a titanium post.
The procedure is performed by Dr. Svetlana Anokhina:
- A 25-year experienced oral surgeon and implantologist.
- One of America's best dentists.
- Awarded America's Best Dentist Awards in 2019-2021.
We use high-quality dental bone grafts that have undergone extensive testing and modern bone growth methods. If there are no contraindications, we can perform both implantation and bone material placement in one procedure. We guarantee postoperative patient care until complete osseointegration.

Bone Augmentation in Dentistry: What is it?
This is a surgical operation aimed at increasing the volume of bone tissue for the subsequent installation of a dental implant. The procedure can be performed in several ways, depending on the location of the titanium post and the condition of the alveolar ridge (height, width, and density).
Types of Bone Grafting at Svetlana Dental
Guided Bone Regeneration
This method is used for minor loss of alveolar ridge.
First, the surgeon places the titanium implant and fills the defect area around it with osteoplastic material. Then, the area is covered with a resorbable collagen membrane.
This procedure is often performed simultaneously with implant placement (especially in the smile zone).
It cannot be used if the patient has significant bone resorption.
This method is used to build up bone in the upper jaw, in the area of the maxillary sinus.
Both methods involve drilling a small hole, lifting the sinus floor with a special tool, and placing the bone material inside.
It can restore up to 6mm of alveolar ridge height (open method). The closed method allows for bone grafting and implant placement in one visit.
There is a long period of osseointegration (5-6 months for the open method). The closed sinus lift method requires a highly skilled implant surgeon.
Alveolar ridge splitting
This method is used when there is enough height of bone for safe installation of an artificial root, but not enough width.
The implantologist performs the following actions: makes an incision in the gum, screws in the implant, fills the free space with osteoplastic material, covers the filled area with a resorbable membrane, and sutures the gum.
Conducted simultaneously with implantation.
There are requirements for the minimum ridge thickness – 2.5-3 mm.
What dental bone graft material do we use in the clinic?
We use the best bone graft material for dental implants from one of the most well-known tissue donor suppliers on the East Coast – RMTB.
We install live bone in patients that have undergone microbiological, serological testing, and multi-level testing for infectious diseases (syphilis, AIDS, HIV, etc.). All tests were conducted in an FDA-registered laboratory. Each tube of bone has its own serial number and certificate (in accordance with international standards ISO 9001:2015).
Why do we offer human cancellous bone with bone marrow?
It not only quickly integrates, but also regenerates the growth of its own bone, creating a strong foundation for future implants in a compressed time frame.
Svetlana Anokhina has undergone special training in bone tissue augmentation at New York University (NYU) and has many successful cases in this area of dentistry. The probability of rejection of bone material due to the doctor's fault is 0%.
"I carefully sanitize the oral cavity and eliminate all sources of infection. I also individually select antibiotics for patients and schedule planned examinations throughout the entire period of osseointegration."
Do we use synthetic materials in the clinic?
Yes, but very rarely. For example, when increasing the volume for a prosthesis.

Post Bone Graft Surgery – Recommendations
We explain to patients what they can and cannot do during the entire recovery period. Here are just a few recommendations for the first few days after the surgery:
Apply a cold compress to the area where the bone graft surgery was performed
Avoid heavy physical exertion, as well as spicy, hot, and salty foods
Take all antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory medications prescribed by the doctor on time and in the correct amount
When brushing your teeth, avoid touching the operated area with the brush
Frequently Asked Questions
Experiencing pain several days, a week, or 1-2 months after bone grafting can be associated with the following reasons:
- The doctor did not perform their work properly (did not remove all sources of inflammation).
- The patient did not follow postoperative recommendations.
If you find yourself in such a situation, make an appointment with Dr. Svetlana. She is ready to take on the most complex cases and find the optimal way to solve the problem.
On average, from 1.5 to 3-9 months. A lot depends on the volume of the material used and the hormonal balance of the patient.
