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.
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.

The whole experience was great I would recommend to anyone who is having tooth surgery done.

This week I completed the 1st phase of getting dental implants at Lakeside. The entire experience was very positive. The office is professional, beautiful, impeccable and smartly laid out. The staff made my wife and me totally comfortable in every way and everything was explained so well. Every "t" was crossed and every "i" was dotted. It is obvious that each member of the team is well versed in what they do. Dr. Haynie is a high caliber professional and super nice. Nurses Kenzie & Sara were superb and hovered over me like two angels keeping me comfortable. The surgery was successful and I highly recommend Lakeside for what they do. I give Lakeside 5 stars !!!

I would recommend going to Dr. Haynie.

Want to thank Dr Haynie and his excellent, knowledgeable and caring team. From the start they made me feel like family and did a wonderful job in explaining my procedure. Because of my previous radiation to the site, he recommended Hyperbaric treatment to help in healing. You know that your doctor cares for their patient when they personally call you to check in on your recovery. I will not hestate to recommend Dr Haynie and all his caring staff to anyone looking for the best oral surgeon in the Inland NorthWest

I had to had a bad infection and needed 3 back teeth pulled as well as 2 skin grafts done. I was referred to Lake side by me doctor. From the time I made the appointment on a Friday they got me in on next Tuesday. I was in allot of pain and was very glad the jumped on it to help me asap. I have never been treated by any business or medical professional as well as the people at Lake side oral. I had my surgery yesterday 6-17-20 and it went so great, they even care about your spouse and have set up their practice to make sure she was well informed during the surgery and have gone so far as to have a massage chair in the theater room for her to wait in. They worked with me on the cost and understood that unexpected things come up when life happens. I want to give special thanks to Kinsey, Venessa and Kara for treating me like family. I have had 5 back surgery's and 3 heart surgery's in the last 6 years due to falling off a roof so I have seen many doctors and surgeons but doctor Haynie is way above the rest the way he treated me. They will not only be me and my family’s oral surgery center for life but my friends. I hope to repay the kindness they all showed me someday. John

He didn't seem in a hurry and really took his time with us to make sure that we were getting all our questions answered. Thank you to all the staff at lakeside oral surgery, you all are amazing at what you do.
