Bone Grafts

Bone Grafts

Dental bone grafts are a common procedure that is performed to help restore the health of the jawbone. The procedure involves taking a small piece of bone from another area of the body and using it to replace the missing or damaged bone in the jaw.

 

People typically get dental bone grafts for one of two reasons: either they have suffered damage to their jawbone due to an injury or disease, or they have had teeth extracted and need to have the bone rebuilt in order to support future dental implants.

 

It’s important to understand the risks and benefits of any dental procedure before undergoing treatment. This is especially true for bone grafting, which is a relatively invasive dental procedure.

There are several things to consider before getting a bone graft, including:

  • The type of bone graft is considered. There are many different types of bone grafts available, each with its own set of risks and benefits.
  • The reason for needing a bone graft. Bone grafts are often used to treat conditions such as periodontitis or tooth loss. It’s important to make sure that a bone graft is the best possible treatment option for your particular condition.
  • The potential risks and complications associated with bone grafting. As with any surgery, there are always risks and potential complications associated with bone grafting. These should be discussed with your dentist or oral surgeon prior to undergoing treatment.
  • The expected recovery time and post-operative care required. Recovery times will vary depending on the type of bone graft being performed. It’s important to discuss the expected recovery time and any post-operative care that will be required with your dentist or oral surgeon prior to treatment.
  • Make sure you are a candidate for bone grafting. Not everyone is a good candidate for bone grafting. Certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, can make bone grafting riskier. It’s important to discuss your medical history with your dentist or oral surgeon to make sure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.
