Bone Grafting

photo 1One of the biggest causes of bone loss in the mouth is periodontal disease. We use a holistic approach to bone grafting , as we do not use bone from cadavers, animals or the patient’s own harvested  bone to help regenerate  lost bone tissue and to help stimulate natural bone growth. We also use bone grafting to create stable bases after extractions of teeth to place implants or to stop the progression of gum disease. We can even use grafting to improve the look of your smile.  Also, the jaw and other facial bones support the skin and muscle that are responsible for our outward cosmetic appearance. Without the support of the underlying bone, our faces can look prematurely aged.

We only use an FDA-approved synthetic bone for grafting, as opposed to cadaver or animal bone.  We obtain this bone from a company that is one of the leaders in in bone graft technology: The Steiner Labs  website contains detailed  information about this procedure.

Testimonials

“My husband and I both cannot imagine going to another dentist than Dr. Stacy Godes. She is truly extraordinary. We live in the Bay Area, and though there are a plethora of medical professionals (including holistic professionals) in the SF Bay, we are so happy with the experiences that we have had with Dr. Godes that we cannot imagine going to someone else. It goes without saying that she is a fantastic dentist. Couple that with her holistic knowledge, integrity, and intuition (how often do you compliment a dentist's intuition??) and it's obvious what a true gem she is. Not only have we experienced the standard dental appointments (cleaning, Xrays, etc), but I have had her remove and replace my amalgam fillings and some old crowns. I also had her extract a root canal. I felt significantly better RIGHT AWAY after each of these procedures and I 100% believe that Dr. Godes is so skilled that they could not have gone better with anyone else. You could not be in better, safer, more knowledgeable, or more competent hands. She is very knowledgeable about diet/nutrition and other aspects of health as well--a truly holistic doctor.”
