Bone Grafting

Your jawbone is the foundation for your smile. The bone beneath your gums sustains your teeth and helps maintain your dental structures where they belong. Without sufficient bone tissue, your entire smile could be in jeopardy, and you may become ineligible for several restorative procedures. At Dental Healing Arts, we can help preserve your facial structures and reinforce your dental health with a bone graft procedure.

What are Bone Grafts?  

A bone graft is a reconstructive surgical procedure in which Dr. Fotek, a Board Certified Periodontist, places a grafting material to an area of the mouth where it’s needed. This procedure replaces, or helps rebuild damaged or missing bone and strengthens your oral structure to avoid further damage or create a platform for other surgical procedures.  Bone grafting will help provide proper support for dental implants which is its primary use.

Is Dental Bone Grafting Painful?

During your procedure, you shouldn’t feel any pain since you will be numb and/or sedated.  Once the anesthetic has worn off, Arnica, StellaLife Recovery kit and over-the-counter medications should be able to handle your discomfort. For the most part, the discomfort will be from the actual surgery and not from the bone graft.

Why Do I Need a Bone Graft?

If you have had a missing tooth for a long time, chances are that the bone in the area that once housed the tooth has begun to atrophy. Without internal stimulation, the bone will continue to shrink, preventing you from receiving restorative procedures like dental implants. Additionally, bone grafts also help restore volume to your face so you can achieve a more youthful appearance.

Is Bone Grafting for Dental Implants Common?

Just as decay, tooth loss is a common oral health problem, bone grafting is a very common option when placing dental implants.
