Important Things To Know About Bone Grafting

Posted on 2/20/2023 by Dr. Anthony Hoffman
Important Things To Know About Bone GraftingBone grafting is a standard procedure to help restore the structure and stability of the jaw, which can improve the chances of successful dental implants. Bone loss in the jaw can cause it to become weak and unstable, which can make it difficult to place dental implants.

There are a few different types of bone grafting, including autogenous bone grafting, which uses bone from another part of your body. Two types of bone grafting are, allograft bone grafting which uses donated bone and xenograft bone grafting uses bone from animals. Your dentist will recommend the best option for you based on your individual needs and the extent of the bone loss.

Not Everyone Is Eligible For Bone Grafting

Before undergoing a bone grafting procedure, you must examine whether you are an excellent candidate. This may include x-rays, CT scans, and other diagnostic tests. It is also important to let your dentist know about any medications you are taking, as well as any allergies or sensitive have.

The procedure usually takes a few hours and is performed under local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia. The type of anesthesia used will depend on the complexity of the procedure and your process.

After the course, you will need to follow your dentist's post-operative instructions to ensure proper healing. It is important to discuss the benefits and risks of bone grafting with your dentist before deciding if it is right for you.
