Dental Bone Grafting From A Reputable Cosmetic Dentist

Dental bone grafting can be thought of as the setting of the table. It’s not as glamorous as the meal itself, but it’s something that must be done if your bone volume calls for it. At Bedford Dental Group, our Beverly Hills cosmetic dentists can provide you with superior dental care. We treat all of our clients like celebrities and are dedicated to creating red-carpet-ready smiles. Not many people seek dental bone grafting without first wanting to undergo an additional procedure like a dental implant. It is usually during pre-surgery x-rays that patients who are looking for a dental implant or something similar before they discover that they actually need a dental bone grafting first.

What Is Dental
Bone Grafting?

Gum disease, trauma, tooth extraction, and/or infection can all lead to loss of bone volume, a collapse of the bone, and a sunken appearance along the jaw and cheeks. Not only that, but without strong bone support, any type of tooth implant would be without the foundation necessary to keep it in place over an extended period of time. To remedy the situation, the foundation needs to be rebuilt, establishing a stable and durable base. This is done by transferring bone to the area of your jaw.

If areas of tooth loss require bone replacement or augmentation, bone grafting can be considered. They are typically performed on the jaws and facial structures, including the jaw and facial skeleton. Other common procedures include a tooth extraction site graft, sinus lift, and bone graft reconstruction.

Bone shrinkage occurs when a tooth becomes lost from trauma, severe caries, and periodontal disease. In addition, bone loss may occur when infection or pathology affects a tooth. There are various artificial biocompatible bone substitutes available, but the best type for bone graft is your own bone. This will likely be extracted from your chin, the back of the lower jaw, or the hip bone.

The three types of grafting procedures include the following:

  • Autogenous Bone Grafting – Involves taking bone from your oral cavity or elsewhere in your body
  • Allograft – Performed with synthetic bone or that of a cadaver, to fuse the jaw
  • Xenograft – Performed using treated and sterilized animal bone to make up for lost jaw

From there, the dental bone grafting procedure is fairly straightforward, involving the bone being grafted to the treatment site, and then covered by a biologically compatible membrane to protect against oral tissues; thus promoting the natural growth of new bone in the end. While the dental bone grafting procedure takes place over a period of four to six months, this setting of the table is a necessary action to ensure the long-term success of any dental implant that is to take place down the road.

A bone graft site will require several months to heal before dental implants can be placed. During this time, the titanium screws will be removed to allow the implants to be applied.
