How Your Bone Can Be Used for Bone Grafts

Posted on 10/10/2019 by Dr Jonathan Ford
How Your Bone Can Be Used for Bone GraftsThe cosmetic effect that dental implants offers is unbeatable, especially for individuals who are missing one or more teeth. Apart from just looking and functioning in a similar manner as regular teeth, dental implants are also undetectable when done correctly.

However, before you can consider having a dental implant, it's important to understand the various aspects and elements of oral surgery. One thing that you should definitely consider is undergoing a bone graft for your dental implants.

Dental implants have got two pieces; an abutment which screws the first piece and a metal cylinder that's placed inside the jaw and functions as the root.

Bone Graft Procedure

During the bone graft procedure, we will begin the process by removing a section of your bone normally from another region of the body. We will then use a special grafting material to graft the extracted bone into your body. Once the process is through, we will ask you to wait for a few more months as the graft develops a new and strong bone to ensure that the implant is secure and stable.

Before proceeding with the bone graft, we will first ensure that the jaw bone is strong enough to offer support to your dental implant. Upon the successful completion of the bone graft, the remaining part of the implant surgery will now be completed.

Just as it is the case with surgical procedures, we highly encourage our patients to discuss their personal medical risks. On top of that, we will also highlight the benefits and risks of this procedure. After a careful assessment, we will then decide whether you are a suitable candidate or not for this procedure.
