About the Procedure

When your tooth is extracted, there will be a void in your bone where the tooth used to be. This void is called an extraction socket. A bone graft is a highly specialized material that fills the extraction socket. By using advanced techniques and premium dental bone graft material, our team can rebuild the jawbone, restore its strength, and create a stable foundation for dental implants or bridges. This process is vital for enhancing both the function and aesthetics of your smile.

High-quality bone graft materials will preserve the health and strength of your jaw bone, they will dissolve over time and allow your body to regenerate its own bone cells. They also preserve the integrity of your gums and lay the foundation for a functional and beautiful implant crown or bridge.

Who Is a Candidate

If you fall into any of the following categories, you may be an ideal candidate for bone reconstruction:

  • Jawbone Loss or Recession: Jawbone loss or recession can lead to tooth loss and a sunken facial appearance. Bone reconstruction can help address these issues by restoring the bone structure and supporting dental implants.
  • Missing Teeth: When teeth are missing, the jawbone may begin to deteriorate as it lacks the necessary stimulation from tooth roots. Bone reconstruction can rebuild the jawbone, providing a solid foundation for dental implants or bridges.
  • Trauma to the Mouth: Facial injuries or knocked-out teeth can result in jawbone deterioration. Bone reconstruction can help restore the integrity and function of the jawbone.
  • Tumor Removal: Surgical removal of tumors may involve removing a portion of the jawbone, affecting both the function and appearance of the jaw. Bone reconstruction can reconstruct the jawbone to restore normal function and aesthetics.
  • Gum Disease: Gum disease, a bacterial infection that affects the gums and jawbone, can lead to gradual deterioration of the jawbone. Bone reconstruction can help address this issue by restoring the bone structure and preventing further damage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you get the bone for bone reconstruction?

There are four choices for bone grafts, each with its own source:

  • Autogenous Grafts2: This type of graft involves using bone from the same individual undergoing the procedure. Essentially, the patient becomes their own donor, ensuring compatibility and minimizing the risk of rejection.
  • Allografts3: In allografts, the bone is obtained from another human donor. Rigorous screening and sterilization processes are employed to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the graft material.
  • Xenografts4: Xenografts involve using donor bone derived from another species, typically from bovine (cow) sources. These grafts undergo thorough processing to remove any potential contaminants and make them compatible with the human body.
  • Synthetic Grafts5: These grafts are created using materials such as Hydroxyapatite, Hydroxyapatite combined with B-Tricalcium phosphate, and Calcium Sulfate. These synthetic materials offer an alternative option for bone grafting and are designed to promote bone growth and regeneration.

During your consultation at Boca Perio Implants, our skilled team will discuss the different graft choices and help determine the most suitable option for your specific needs. We prioritize safety, effectiveness, and patient satisfaction when selecting the appropriate bone grafting material for your dental reconstruction procedure.

How long do dental bone grafts take to heal?

The healing time for dental bone grafts can vary depending on several factors, including the extent of the graft, your overall health, and the location of the graft site. In general, it takes several months for the bone graft to integrate with your natural bone fully. During this period, new bone cells gradually replace the graft material, creating a strong foundation for dental implants or other restorative treatments.

Is dental bone grafting painful?

At Boca Perio Implants, we prioritize your comfort throughout the dental bone grafting process. During the procedure, local anesthesia is administered to numb the treatment area, ensuring a pain-free experience. After the surgery, you may experience some discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed pain medication. Our team will provide detailed post-operative instructions to help you manage any discomfort and promote a smooth recovery.

How long does dental bone graft swelling last?

Swelling after a dental bone graft is normal, and is part of the body’s natural healing response. The duration and extent of swelling can vary from person to person. Typically, you can expect swelling to peak within the first 48 to 72 hours after the procedure and gradually subside over the following week. Applying cold compresses to the affected area as directed by our team can help minimize swelling and promote faster healing.

How much does dental grafting cost?

The cost of dental bone grafting can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the procedure, the type of graft material used, and any additional treatments required. During your consultation at Boca Perio Implants, our team will assess your specific needs and provide you with a detailed treatment plan, including a breakdown of the associated costs. We strive to offer competitive pricing and flexible payment options to make dental grafting affordable for our patients.

What to expect after a dental bone graft?

After a dental bone graft, it is normal to experience some swelling, discomfort, and mild bleeding. Our team will provide you with specific post-operative instructions to follow, which may include guidelines for oral hygiene, dietary restrictions, and medication usage. It is important to follow these instructions closely to promote proper healing and the success of the graft. Over time, you will notice gradual improvement as the bone graft integrates and strengthens, paving the way for further dental treatments.

What if I don’t get a bone graft?

After a tooth is extracted, the body will adjust and adapt to the missing-tooth site. These changes may affect your bone, gums, and adjacent teeth or crowns. Your bone may become too narrow for a dental implant, too short for an attractive bridge, atrophied, and weaker. Your gums may recede away from your tooth roots and become thin or compromised. And, your teeth or crowns may shift or tilt out of alignment, become sensitive if recession occurs, or accumulate decay in hard-to-brush areas.
