What is Bone Grafting?

Posted on 10/24/2022 by Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS
What is Bone Grafting?Bone grafting is a dental technique used to repair deteriorated jaw bone. It aids in promoting bone development needed to prepare and remodel the jaw for dental implants. A lost tooth or teeth are replaced with implants. The dentist obtains the autogenous bone graft material directly from the patient (autogenous) or purchases it from a human tissue bank (allograft). In other cases, the substance may be synthetic (alloplastic) or taken from a bank of animal tissue (xenograft).

Who is an Appropriate Candidate for Bone Grafting?

People who have lost their jaw bone can benefit greatly from a bone grafting operation. The procedure is also ideal for people who have extracted their teeth and want to use dental implants to replace the lost teeth. Besides, bone grafting is the best option for those who need jaw rebuilding before they receive dentures.

How Do Bone Transplants Work?

The bone grafts keep or hold the damaged body parts together for repair. They enable bone tissues to develop and regenerate. If necessary, the dentist might combine the bone graft with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a blood sample. Platelet-rich plasma is essential since it helps regenerate tissues and speed up recovery.

Advantages of Bone Grafting

In the event of tooth loss, injury, or gum disease, the technique aids in returning the jaw bone to its original form. This is crucial because it stops individuals from developing additional dental issues or disorders. Additionally, bone grafting improves your functionality and overall appearance by restoring your facial bone and structure. As a result, this promotes your self-confidence and self-esteem. The bone graft also reinforces the remaining jaw and teeth, preventing additional damage. In addition, bone graft secures dental devices like crowns, implants, bridges, and dentures.
