As a dental office that provides comprehensive dental care to patients, we understand the importance of having a healthy and beautiful smile. One of the most popular dental procedures that we offer is implant surgery. However, not all patients are eligible for this procedure due to the lack of bone density or bone height in their jawbone. This is where bone graft dental procedures come in.
Bone Graft Dental Procedures
Bone graft dental procedures involve adding bone to the jawbone to increase its density as well as volume. This is done to provide a solid foundation for dental implants. The procedure typically involves placing finely ground synthetic bone or better yet human bone (treated cadaver bone or ground down natural tooth from the same person if it can be used) in the jawbone where the implant will be placed. There are some cases where bone is taken from another location in the body and then placed in the site that needs to be augmented as well. Either way, this helps to create a strong base for the implant to be anchored to, increasing the chances of implant success.
Benefits of Bone Graft Dental Procedures
There are several benefits to bone graft dental procedures for implant success. Firstly, it allows patients who would not have been eligible for tooth implant surgery (due to lack of bone density) to undergo the procedure. This means that more patients can benefit from the advantages of tooth implants, such as improved chewing ability, speech, and aesthetics.
Secondly, when a tooth is extracted, the bone that once supported the tooth begins to deteriorate. This can lead to a sunken appearance in the face and can make it difficult to place dental implants in the future. By adding bone to the jawbone, bone graft dental procedures can help to maintain the bone structure and prevent further bone loss.
Thirdly, bone graft dental procedures can improve the overall success rate of tooth implant surgery. Dental implants require a strong and stable foundation to be successful. By increasing the density of the jawbone, bone graft dental procedures provide a solid base for the implant to be anchored to. This increases the chances of implant success and reduces the risk of implant failure.
In summary, bone graft dental procedures are an essential part of tooth implant surgery. They provide a solid foundation for dental implants, increase the chances of implant success, prevent bone loss in the jawbone, and allow more patients to benefit from the advantages of tooth implants. If you are considering tooth implant surgery, it is essential to consult with a dental professional to determine if a bone graft dental procedure is necessary.
