Bone Grafting

Over time, tooth loss or periodontal (gum) disease may cause nearby bone to recede or deteriorate. Bone grafting can replace bone in the jaw while minimizing gum and bone collapse.

Bone grafting is often associated with dental restoration procedures such as dental implants. If the jawbone has sustained significant damage, bone grafting can be used to create a solid base for dental implants.

Who Can Benefit From Bone Grafting?

In the past, patients with insufficient bone structure were not candidates for dental implants. With current bone graft techniques, we now have the ability to create bone on the upper and lower jaws.

Bone grafting can help us treat:

  • Bone loss due periodontal disease, extraction or injury
  • Insufficient bone for dental implants
  • Instabillity or lack of strength in the jaw

Bone grafting can replace or correct missing bone, giving us the opportunity to place dental implants. For those affected by periodontal disease, bone grafting can significantly improve your oral health by increasing the strength and stability of your jaw.

What to Expect During Your Bone Grafting

Bone grafting material is typicallyharvested from one part of your body and transplanted to the treatment area. Alternatively, bone graft material may come from human cadaver, bovine (cow) or synthetic sources. The bone graft material will be anchored in place using small titanium screws. We will then place a barrier membrane, typically made from human or bovine sources, to stabilize the graft.

After Your Surgery

Most patients experience some swelling and discomfort following surgery. A soft food diet may be recommended during recovery. The recovery time after grafting will depend on the type of graft performed. Most patients are able to resume normal activities within a couple days. Full healing may take 6-12 months. Dental implants can only be inserted when the healing process is complete.

Understanding the Risks of Bone Grafting

All surgical procedures, including bone grafting, present risks. These risks will be discussed in-depth during the consultation process. Some risks may include but are not limited to bleeding, infection, adverse reaction to anesthesia, scarring and delayed healing.
