When the jawbone has been lost, a dental bone graft is required. This operation is frequently carried out before dental implants are inserted or when nearby teeth are suffering from bone loss. After a serious fracture or when bones don’t mend properly, bone grafting helps to rebuild the bones. Additionally, grafting joins two nearby bones to reduce ongoing discomfort. There are numerous options for this treatment, including artificial bone transplants, autografts, and allografts.
To determine if you could benefit from reconstructive dentistry, your dentist will begin with an examination.
After examining the health of your mouth, your dentist will evaluate any areas that seem problematic.
The most common type of reconstructive dentistry is dental fillings. If you have a cavity in one of your teeth, your dentist will numb the site, remove the decayed area, and fill the hole left behind with silver amalgam, gold, or composite resin to restore the tooth’s original shape.
The key benefit of a bone graft for dental implant patients is that it allows them to take advantage of all the benefits that implants offer compared with dentures or bridges. These benefits include:
Dental implants look natural and have a high level of functionality. They are regarded as unique in preserving bone to help prevent deterioration of the facial structure. Like muscle, bone weakens when not in use. In the absence of stimulation from a tooth root, the supporting bone can begin to waste away. Bridges and dentures can’t fix this issue, but implants provide an effective solution as tooth root replacements, becoming part of your jaw and preserving its structural integrity.
