Bone Grafting Procedure
Comfy Dental Mandurah – Bone Grafting Procedure in Perth
When you’re considering dental implants to replace missing teeth, the reason for your missing teeth often determines the health of the underlying jaw bone.
If your teeth are missing due to injury, trauma, infection, disease or decay, bone loss can occur, and the jaw bone is sometimes too deteriorated to support the implants.
This is where a dental bone graft procedure is necessary to replace and regenerate the lost bone and create a stable base for the implant.
What is Bone Grafting?
In a bone graft for dental implant, a surgeon takes a section of bone from somewhere else in your body and grafts it onto the jaw bone. It takes several months for the graft to create strong, new bone that’s stable enough for dental implants.
Once the bone is stable, your dentist can go ahead and place the implant post into the jawbone. You’ll need to wait a while for this to stabilise as well before the new tooth is inserted onto the post.
Before and After the Dental Bone Graft Surgery
It’s important to discuss your medical history and any medications you’re currently taking with the surgeon before moving forward with the dental bone graft procedure, so all the risks and benefits can be weighed.
If you’re a good candidate then the surgeon can proceed and you’ll be one step closer to restoring your smile.
After the procedure you’ll experience a little pain and swelling of the gums but if all goes well this will quickly calm down and the healing process will begin.
You’ll have to eat soft foods while you’re healing and monitor the bone graft site to ensure it stays healthy.
