Bone Graft

Sometimes when a dental implant is placed, it is necessary to build up the bone in the area to insure success. The procedure of building up the bone is known as Bone Grafting. Bone grafting is a very common procedure in dentistry and it is used quite a bit for dental implants and in periodontal procedures around natural teeth. In order to do bone grafting, we need a source of bone to place in the site. The bone that we use can be one of three types. The best bone is bone that is taken from the patient that we are working on. This bone can be taken from other areas of the mouth or collected in our suction apparatus as we drill into the bone to prepare the sites for dental implants. Occasionally this bone is taken from areas outside the mouth, such as the hip. When bone is taken from the hip, it is usually done in the hospital by an orthopedic surgeon and transferred to the dentist doing the implant procedure in the OR.

Another very common source of bone is bone taken from cadavers. This bone is harvested under very strict supervision at several bone banks around the country and it is used in many dental and medical procedures. There has never been a case of a transmitted disease with this type of bone. It is very safe and very useful in our work to help patients. A third type of bone is a synthetic type of bone taken. This has some use in dentistry but it does not seem to be as useful as the first two types of bone.

This section is for patients who are residents of Florida and patients from outside of this area who would like to travel to Boynton Beach, Florida to have their dental implant work performed by Dr. Davidoff, one of the world's top dental implant Prosthodontists.


Patients from all over the world travel to Dr. Davidoff's Dental Offices in Boynton Beach  in order to have Dr. Davidoff place and/or restore their dental implants. This procedure works out best if the patient will spend several months in the area, but occasionally, we have patients who fly in for various aspects of their dental work and then return at later times for completion. If you would like to consider treatment by Dr. Davidoff, you might want to check out what we did for one of our "long distance" patients and then read the guidelines below:

Contact the office and arrange to send your dental records for review prior to coming to the area.

Patients receiving implants must be available for up to two weeks after implant placement so that Dr. Davidoff can check on the healing.

Patients receiving extensive grafting procedures may have to be monitored by another dentist if they leave the area during the healing phase of treatment.

There is a second stage to the implant surgery which is done approximately 3 to 4 months after the implants are placed. You can make arrangements to have this phase done elsewhere, but it is advisable to return to Boca Raton.

Prosthetic reconstruction will usually take between two and four months to complete once the implants are placed. Time restrictions may prohibit this phase from being performed in Florida and might necessarily be carried out elsewhere.

Find a Dentist

I have some information here about dentists all over the world who work with dental implants.


Perhaps the most critical factor in implant dentistry is your decision as to which dentist will be in charge of your treatment.

Even though there is a surgical portion to treatment involving dental implants, it must be remembered that this is what is called a "Restorative Dental Procedure". Therefor, it is imperative that a restorative dentist heads the implant team (If the restorative dentist also places the implants, so much the better...). If you have a Prosthodontist in your area, I would recommend that this would be your starting point. Prosthodontists are trained specialists in Restorative Dentistry and are extremely well trained in dental implant techniques. If your Prosthodontist does not actually place the implants, he or she can direct you to a qualified Oral Surgeon or Periodontist for the implant placement phase of your treatment. You can locate a Prosthodontist in your area by contacting the American College of Prosthodontists.
