A dental bone graft is a procedure that restores and regenerates the jawbone. It involves taking bone material from various sources and placing it where bone loss has occurred. This scaffold-like graft stimulates natural healing and new bone growth. Typically used for dental implants, it strengthens the jawbone, making dental treatments successful and safe.
When the upper jaw lacks enough bone height near the sinus, a sinus lift procedure can create additional bone, often necessary for upper dental implants.
Insufficient jawbone width or height can be built up through ridge augmentation, often done before dental implant placement.
When a tooth is removed, it can cause bone loss in the area. If the patient plans to get a dental implant in the future, a bone graft may be necessary.
Sometimes, you need a bone graft for dental implants when there’s not enough jawbone to support them. This graft helps beef up the bone for a strong foundation.
Dental bone grafts are a game-changer for those with missing teeth. They create a strong foundation for dental implants, ensuring a lasting solution and a confident smile. Though recovery takes time, the benefits in terms of oral health and improved quality of life are truly rewarding.
Dental bone grafts, like any procedure, come with some rare risks like infection or allergies. In a few cases, there might be complications with graft integration or nearby structures. These risks are minimal, and your dentist will take steps to minimize them. Always consult your dentist first.
