What is a Bone Graft?
Today, there are effective techniques that can prevent or greatly reduce the bone and soft tissue loss that normally occurs with tooth removal. Bone Grafting is a simple procedure your dentist can perform in the office. It involves placing grafting material directly into the site following removal of a tooth. The graft, a safe, biocompatible material, aids the body in preserving existing bone and making new bone.
- Preserves facial bone structure and gums
- Assists the body in healing itself
- Better Appearance
- Better fitting of dental prostheses
- Safe and effective
- Simple procedure
What to expect after grafting:
After the procedure, your body should begin the natural process of healing and forming new bone. Follow your doctor's instructions in care for the grafted site and surrounding gum tissue. Although new bone will begin to form within the first few weeks after grafting, several months may be required to form the bone density necessary for additional dental procedures to be performed. Ask your doctor about your specific case.
