What Is Dental Bone Grafting?

For patient's missing one or more teeth, the cosmetic effects, comfort, and longevity of dental implants are unbeatable. Because an implant looks and functions the same as a healthy tooth, a successful implant is just about undetectable. However, implants may require the possibility of dental bone grafting.

Bone grafts for dental implants are a minimally invasive, routine procedure that doesn't require much personal downtime. Dental bone grafting replaces any missing bone in the jaw, providing a firm base for future dental implants.

Why Consider Dental Bone Grafting?

Missing teeth can cause a person's jaw bone to resorb, or atrophy. Many times this results in smaller quantity and quality of bone that is suitable for the placement of dental implants. Fortunately for these patients, we can grow bone where we need it.

Dental bone grafting gives us the opportunity to place dental implants of proper width and length, but it also provides space to restore dental functionality and aesthetic appearance.


Benefits Dental Implants

Dental implants that support an overdenture will last many years and have several benefits:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth.

  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.

  • Restore a patient’s confident smile.

  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.

  • Restore or enhance facial tissues.

What To Expect After Dental Bone Graft Surgery

After the dental bone grafting surgery, expect some discomfort, as with any dental procedure. However, the pain will likely be minor and is comparable to the pain of tooth extraction. While minor aches and pains are typical, we will prescribe an anti-inflammatory medication to help manage the discomfort level. Applying ice to the area of the bone graft is also helpful.
