This operation is usually done prior to the placement of dental implants or when bone loss is affecting the health of nearby gums and teeth.
If you are a dental patient considering having dental implants, it is essential to remember that it is pretty common to be told during a consultation that bone grafting for dental implant surgery may be required.
Thankfully, you don’t have to be concerned about this surgery. It’s just part of the typical, painless, predictable dental procedure.
The operation is performed under general anaesthesia and/or sedation. This reduces the patient’s discomfort while in the dentist’s chair. Dentists will prescribe pain medication to aid with soreness and discomfort throughout the healing time. We will provide after-care advice to assist the patient while they recuperate.
A dental bone graft is a simple and effective surgery. Your dentist will remove a small quantity of bone from another site and attach it to the jaw. This is done under anaesthesia, and when it heals, the new pieces of bone link to the old, making it stronger and better equipped to sustain an implant. Following the completion of the bone grafting, your mouth must heal completely before any further treatments may be conducted, which can take anything from a few weeks to 2-3 months.
Your dentist will check you before surgically inserting dental implants to verify that your mouth can sustain them. Most people are candidates for dental implants, but some lack sufficient healthy bone to sustain them. And before dental implants can be placed, this condition must be treated first, often with a dental bone graft treatment.
