Bone grafting

Bone grafting

For patients who are missing one or two teeth, the cosmetic effect of a dental implant is nearly unrivaled. Dental implants resemble natural teeth in appearance and operation, and a successful implant is almost undetectable. Nonetheless, it is therefore important to ensure that you appreciate all facets of oral surgery, and a dental implant is no exception. What is important to consider is the possibility of bone grafting for dental implants.

A dental implant is made up of two parts: a metal cylinder that is placed in the mouth and serves as the tooth’s racine, and a dent-pilier that is attached to the first piece. A couronne is then placed on the dent-pilier, giving the appearance of a dent.

A dental implant is made up of two parts: a metal cylinder that is inserted in the jawbone and serves as the tooth’s base, and a tooth abutment that screws into the first part. The abutment is then covered with a crown, giving the impression of a tooth.

A bone grafting operation involves the surgeon taking a piece of bone from another part of the body or, in most cases, grafting it onto the jawbone using a special bone grafting material. You will then have to wait several months, in most cases, for the graft to produce fresh bone that is solid enough for the implant to be durable and secure. If you simply need a small graft, you will be able to get the operation performed at the same time as the implant surgery, but the final decision is up to the dentist. Bone grafting that is effective requires the jawbone to be solid enough to accommodate your dental implant.

After the bone grafting is over, the implant operation will begin. Like for every surgical operation, it is important to check your full medical history with your dentist and explore the complications and advantages of surgery. If your doctor determines that this treatment is appropriate for you, you should look forward to a whole new face.
