What Is Bone Grafting?
Bone grafting is a medically-sound technique for reconstructing the jawbone in cases where it has become weakened due to gum trauma, infection, or prior tooth removal. Harness this procedure and you will quickly be ready to receive dental implants.
Patients can source their bone grafts from a tissue bank, or the graft could be extracted from the hip, tibia, jaw area of the same patient. Furthermore, sinus bone grafting is used to replace missing bones in the upper posterior jawbone. This process also includes inserting special membranes which dissolve beneath gum tissue and aid with facilitating new bone development–this method is known as guided membrane or bone regeneration.
Bone grafting is a surgical intervention used to fill extensive jawbone defects caused by congenital issues, tumor removal surgery and accidents. To repair the damage, surgeons harvest bone from different parts of the body such as the tibia or lateral knee, hip and skull. These types of procedures are highly complex and require access to an operating room and hospitalization for optimal care.
Questions About Bone Grafting?
Process For Restoring Lost Bone
To revive and maintain the right height, width, and density of your jawbone in certain areas where it has been weakened or depleted due to tooth extraction, a bone grafting procedure may be necessary. This process could involve using either donor or patient-donated blocks/granules as graft material; these are often employed before we place dental implants —or even during implant surgery—to make sure those implants stay secure for many years. Following are the various types of bone grafts available at ACE Dental:
After tooth extractions, we conduct a socket preservation procedure which entails packing bone graft material into the vacated socket. This slows down resorption in the area where the extracted tooth was located and additionally helps maintain healthy bones until an implant can be placed.
Revitalizing your jaw arch with Ridge Augmentation can be a life-changing experience; this bone grafting process restores the original density of a jaw ridge, resulting in more comfortable dentures that fit perfectly to your gum line. With Ridge Augmentation, you will enjoy a secure smile and enhanced quality of life.
When the jaw’s premolar or molar areas are lacking in density and volume, a sinus lift may be beneficial. The procedure involves raising the sinus cavity so that bone grafting material can be inserted to restore appropriate bone height and density. Since it is an intricate surgery, you should entrust your oral health only to a trusted surgeon for this treatment.
Benefits of Bone Grafting
By undergoing bone grafting, you can open yourself up to countless possibilities when it comes to dental implants. These implants will be able to securely hold bridges, crowns and dentures in place if any of your permanent teeth are missing—guaranteeing a perfect look for your smile.
Furthermore, achieving an optimal jawbone strength also decreases the risk of losing a tooth permanently. So why not give bone grafting a chance? At ACE Dental, our dentist will assure that your procedure is handled in an efficient and suitable manner producing the results you desire.
After a thorough discussion of your symptoms and dental history, our dentists will determine if bone grafting is the best course of action for you. We will take X-rays, examine your teeth and gums to get a clearer understanding of any potential issues. Whether it is because you want to reduce the chance of permanent tooth loss or need dental implants due to significant gum disease related bone loss -bone grafting may be right for you. Remember that in order to ensure safety post procedure, arrange transportation home if opting for a sedative prior.
