What is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is a procedure that involves the placement of grafting material to stimulate the growth of new bone in areas where bone loss or insufficient bone density is present. It is commonly used in various dental procedures to provide a solid foundation for dental implants, support natural teeth, and enhance overall oral health.


Benefits of Bone Grafting

Bone grafting offers several benefits, including:

  • Improved Implant Success: Bone grafting creates a sturdy and supportive foundation for dental implants, increasing the chances of successful implant integration and long-term stability.
  • Enhanced Bone Volume: Grafting material helps stimulate the growth of new bone, improving bone volume and density in areas where bone loss has occurred.
  • Preserved Facial Structure: Bone loss in the jaw can lead to facial sagging and a sunken appearance. By restoring bone through grafting, we can help maintain the natural contours of your face and provide a more youthful appearance.

What To Expect

At Gower Family Dentistry, your comfort and well-being are our top priorities. During your bone grafting procedure, our skilled dental team will ensure that you feel at ease and fully understand the process. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Consultation: We’ll begin with a thorough examination and consultation to evaluate your specific needs and determine if bone grafting is the right solution for you. We’ll discuss the procedure, address any concerns you may have, and develop a customized treatment plan.
  2. Grafting Procedure: The bone grafting procedure involves placing grafting material in the targeted area, stimulating new bone growth. The grafting material can come from various sources, including your own bone, synthetic materials, or donor bone. Our team will select the most suitable option for your unique situation.
  3. Healing and Integration: After the bone grafting procedure, it takes time for the grafting material to integrate and fuse with your existing bone. The healing process varies from patient to patient, but our team will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to promote optimal healing and minimize discomfort.

Bone Grafting Aftercare

Proper aftercare is crucial to ensure successful bone grafting and optimize healing. Our team will provide you with specific instructions tailored to your needs, including:

  • Oral Hygiene: It’s important to maintain excellent oral hygiene during the healing process. We’ll guide you on proper brushing and flossing techniques to keep the surgical site clean without disrupting the healing process.
  • Diet Recommendations: You may need to modify your diet temporarily to avoid chewing on the surgical site and promote healing. We’ll provide dietary guidelines and suggest softer food options.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress and ensure the successful integration of the grafting material.
