Bone Grafting in King of Prussia, PA
What Is Bone Grafting?
The strength of your jawbone is important to your overall oral health. If your jawbone is weak from physical trauma or missing teeth, you may need a bone graft so the jaw can properly fit both your natural teeth and dental implants. A bone graft helps to strengthen and rebuild your jawbone so it is stable enough to hold a dental implant. At ByDesign Dental Specialists, osseous surgery is offered to prepare your jaw for subsequent implant surgery to replace missing or weak teeth. Plan an appointment with our oral surgery team at our King of Prussia, PA office to learn more about surgical bone grafts.
What Can I Expect From Bone Grafting?
The process of bone grafting surgery will depend on the source of the graft and the amount of grafting being done. The donor bone may be removed from your own body from areas, like the hip, chin, or shin, which is called an autograft. This may be done in our office with local anesthesia and sedation, or at a surgical facility under general anesthesia. Additional graft methods include an allograft, which uses bone harvested from another person. A xenograft is a bone graft from an animal, typically a cow. Another option is a synthetic bone graft known as an alloplast. During your consultation, our expert team will go over your options for bone grafts and help you decide on the best choice for your needs.
When the selected graft is ready, we will numb the needed areas and place an incision through the gum tissue to reveal the jawbone. The bone graft will be affixed to the jawbone with collagen and proteins that encourage bone growth. The gums will be sutured closed and the area will be cleaned.

Bone Grafting Reviews
Trust the process! I was referred by a friend to go here. I can say, I didn't make a mistake. Dr. Moore and Dr. Mogyoros are fantastic. They both truly care about their patients health and well-being. The entire staff recognizes that we are all people and they want their patients to feel great about their smile. I was comfortable here and would highly recommend! Thank you all for making me feel great again! I love to smile again.
This is an absolutely beautiful, relaxing office with fantastic staff and doctors. I wouldn’t want to be treated anywhere else.
I recently got a filling done at this dental office. Beverly, Dr. Moore's assistant was wonderful. She did a great job helping out and ensuring I was comfortable. Dr. Moore is an excellent prosthodontist. He explained everything he was doing and made sure it was done correctly.
Both a kind and knowledgeable physician as well as fantastically gifted surgeon. My daughter needed a surgery and Dr Levin performed the procedure. She basically had no pain and there was not even a scar during or after recovery. Fairly invasive procedure as well. Only good things to say about Dr Levin.
Dr. Moore is patient, compassionate and great at his job. I had significant anxiety as I hadn’t had a dental procedure (other than teeth cleanings) in over 15 years and forgot what to expect- he explained everything, took his time answering all my questions and I never felt like I was being pressured to rush through the procedure. My significant other has been coming to him for years and I made the switch to have him be my dentist and it was the best decision.
