Dental bone grafts refer to the procedure of building up the bone. Sometimes when a dental implant is placed, it is necessary to build up the bone in the area to ensure success. Dental bone grafting is a common procedure in dentistry, and it is used quite a bit for dental implants and in periodontal procedures around natural teeth. In order to do bone grafting, a source of bone is needed to place in the site. It is very safe and very useful in our work to help patients.
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone with material from the patient’s own body, an artificial, synthetic, or natural substitute.
Bone graft material is safe, and the procedure is highly effective. It should be noted that the grafted material completely vanishes in less than a year as it becomes replaced by your body’s own bone structure. Dental bone grafts along with this bone material have been used in modern periodontics for over 30 years and in millions of cases.
Once the dental grafting procedure has been completed, other dental implant procedures can proceed. Make sure that you discuss your medical history before opting for bone grafting. Also, make sure to ask your dentist all the benefits and demerits of bone grafting. Once you and your doctor is fully ready for the procedure, you can expect great results from this.
