BONE GRAFTING

If you have been told that you need to have bone grafting performed, you may be scared and confused about what it is, if it hurts, and what to do next. Before you panic, it helps to fully understand what it is and how Access Dental Care can help you.

Bone grafting is considered a surgical dental procedure and it is used to add additional bone to the jaw, when a patient is missing it. Bone can be missing for a variety of reasons and is usually a result of trauma to the area, problems with the joint, or gum disease. Once the bone has been lost, it does not automatically regenerate, thus the reason for bone grafting.

Typically, bone grafting is not a procedure that is done on its own. What this means is that it is often done in conjunction with a cosmetic procedure such as dental implants or implant-supported dentures.

Why Have Bone Grafting Performed?

If you are wondering where exactly the bone comes from that is injected into your jaw, you may be in for surprise. It is almost always YOUR bone. Dr. Song will extract bone from another area in your body and then inject it into your jaw. If you do not have additional bone that can be used, bone from an animal will be used. Once your body has accepted the injected bone, it will begin to regenerate on its own. Most often, the bone is accepted and rarely is it rejected.

Bone grafting is beneficial for all patients who are in need of it. As we mentioned briefly above, dental implants cannot be placed when there is not enough bone in your jaw. Typically, bone is lost because of gum disease and does not regenerate.

When gum disease is allowed to persist, you will notice that your gum hurt more, your teeth loosen, and you may eventually lose your teeth. Once your teeth have been lost, the bone in that area will disappear unless there is something there to prevent it from being lost.

If the bone is lost, you may notice that your face does not sit the same and your bite may be uneven. Bone grafting can restore bone into your jaw that may have been lost.
