A bone graft is often used to prepare for the placement of a dental implant. Dental implants are titanium restorations commonly used for replacing one or more teeth missing from the smile. However, to be proper candidates for dental implants, patients must have sufficient bone in the jaw. This ensures the dental implants can become firmly supported and offer the benefits they are known for providing. When patients are unable to have implants placed due to lack of bone, they may want to find out if bone grafting is a proper procedure for them.
Bone grafting helps in building up the jawbone. This may be done with natural samples or man-made grafts. Time is needed for the graft to properly heal before patients can have their dental implants placed. The implants can also stimulate bone growth through osseointegration. This further extends the bone and provides a wonderful foundation for the implant.
The procedure is done right in our office with proper sedation and anesthetics. The dentist will need to access the bone to place the grafting materials precisely where they need to be. The gums are sutured and patients are advised as to what they need to do to facilitate proper healing.
