BONE GRAFTING AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
Patients who have had conditions such as periodontal disease or tooth loss may be dealing with the after-effects known as dental resorption. It is natural for bone loss to happen with time when patients are not being proactive about their oral health. Dr. Sima F. Chegini and her team at Arsmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry work with patients who need restoration of the jaw to prepare for implants.
What occurs during bone graft surgery?
Bone grafting, sometimes called bone augmentation, is rebuilding the bone with freeze-dried bone. When teeth are extracted or lost, the bone naturally begins to deteriorate. That also occurs with conditions such as periodontal disease, causing existing teeth to shift or become loose as they lose their foundation. Rebuilding bone loss in gums is necessary to restore the smile while also allowing patients to prepare for specific procedures such as dental implants to address tooth loss.
Tooth extraction and bone grafting
After teeth have been extracted, patients will speak to their dentist about restorative options. Dental implants are a highly desirable choice for many in the Fairlawn, Ohio, area. However, dental implants require good bone structure to ensure a successful placement. Bone augmentation prepares the patient for dental implants in the future and can be an intelligent investment in achieving and maintaining oral health and wellness after problems have occurred.
I’ve been going to Dr. Chegini for about 5 years. The staff is always so friendly and efficient. Dr. Chegini is always pleasant and professional. It’s always a plus knowing she runs on time as well and I’m never held up!
How long does bone grafting take?
Bone grafting is a process that takes time, so patients should be fully aware of the time needed to achieve their desired results. Many months may be required from start to finish to help patients obtain restorations such as dental implants.
