Bone Graft in Cary, NC

Bone Grafting

Facial trauma, unchecked gum disease, and tooth loss can result in jawbone recession, making it difficult to qualify for dental implants.

Bone grafting is a procedure designed to add volume and density to the jawbone and reestablish your candidacy for implant placement.

Grafted Bone Can Function Like Natural Bone Tissue

Bone grafting can help replace missing teeth.
Using a biocompatible grafting material or tissue from another part of your body, bone grafting can repair a compromised smile and create a stable foundation for dental implants.

 

Bone grafting can protect your smile after tooth extraction.
After removing a tooth, the jawbone can deteriorate. By packing the tooth socket with grafting material, a bone graft can prevent tissue loss.

 

Treatment has a high success rate.
Studies have shown that dental implants placed in grafted tissue have similar success rates to implants placed in natural bone. 

Restoring Bone Tissue Involves Surgery? That sounds painful...

Thanks to careful planning and minimally invasive techniques, bone grafting is predictable and results in minimal discomfort. In addition to local anesthetic, which numbs the treatment area, your dentist may be able to provide sedation. Options such as nitrous oxide, oral medication, and intravenous sedation are safe and reliable.

The Bone Grafting Process

  1. Your dentist will conduct imaging to assess the quality and quantity of your bone tissue and decide where the bone grafts are needed. 
  2. On the day of surgery, your dentist will create an incision in your gums and carefully place the synthetic grafting material or autologous bone tissue in the recessed jawbone.
  3. Your dentist will close the surgery site with sutures.
  4. You will be sent home to recover and should be fully healed within approximately three months.
  5. When your bone tissue is healed, your dentist will schedule your implant surgery.
