Bone Grafting

Bone Grafting

Cosmetic dentistry like bone grafting prevents you from losing bone and can help if you have extreme damage to your teeth. If you have missing teeth then you need to come to the dentist so your gum tissue and bone do not deteriorate further. You could end up with multiple tooth loss if left untreated. Losing your teeth causes your face structure to change. 

A shortening of the distance between your chin and nose can be caused by missing teeth since teeth form the basis of the shape and structure of your mouth. With bone grafting, new bone growth is stimulated where you no longer have teeth, alleviating other problems from occurring and adding support to your jaw should you decide to get implants.
Our bone grafting uses materials to stimulate new bone growth where the missing teeth are to help alleviate future issues.

Bone Grafting Materials 

There are many bone grafting materials available to use but of course, your dentist will choose the one that is best for your situation. As time goes on, natural bone growth will replace the grafting material used. 

After a complete examination of your oral cavity, your dental and medical history, and your health, we will determine the type of material to use for your bone grafting. Your dentist will explain the process in detail so you understand exactly what is about to happen.

If your teeth are damaged and you are considering implants, we can provide bone grafting to the empty socket to give you back the strength you need to support the implant. A block of bone might be used to fill in space where your teeth are missing if you don’t have enough bone for implant surgery. You can relax during the treatment by having an oral or IV sedative before your dentist making the little incision.

What To Expect After Your Treatment?

Depending on the complexity of your bone grafting treatment, it can take anywhere from several weeks to several months for recovery. You might notice some swelling, bruising or a bit of bleeding after this type of procedure but it is completely safe. The dentist will ensure your progress is monitored and recommend you go on a soft foods diet to prevent major pain.

 Flossing and rinsing your mouth is still essential but be sure to use a mouthwash without alcohol. If you find it hard to clean in some locations, try an implant tool to help you. Your dentist will direct you to the right tools for your proper oral hygiene.

Your dentist will schedule return visits to make sure you are healing properly. We are here to help you every step along the way.
