Understanding the Need for Dental Bone Grafting

Common Issues: Loss of jawbone can occur due to several reasons, including tooth loss, periodontal disease, or trauma. This bone loss can complicate or even prevent the placement of dental implants.

Tailored Solutions: Our dental bone grafting procedures supplement the jaw with bone or bone-like materials to encourage regeneration. Over time, this new bone growth strengthens the area, making it suitable for implants or other dental restorations.

Positive Outcomes: By restoring the jawbone, patients gain the potential for further restorative work and benefit from improved facial structure and oral health.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some FAQs to help you understand what to expect when undergoing dental bone grafting at Sarasota Dental Arts.

What is dental bone grafting?
Dental bone grafting is a procedure used to increase the amount of bone in a part of the jaw where the bone has become insufficient to place a dental implant or maintain healthy tooth structures.
Why might I need a bone graft?

You might need a bone graft if you’ve lost bone around your teeth due to periodontal disease, or if you need a dental implant but don’t have sufficient bone to support it.

What types of materials are used for bone grafts?
Bone grafting materials can be sourced from your own body (autograft), from a donor (allograft), or from synthetic materials, each chosen based on the specific needs and best outcomes for the patient.
Is the bone grafting procedure painful?
The procedure itself is performed under local anesthesia or sedation, so you shouldn’t feel any pain during the surgery. Post-procedural discomfort is typically mild and manageable with prescribed pain relief.
How long does it take for a bone graft to heal?
The initial healing phase may take anywhere from two to three months, but complete integration of the graft with your natural bone can take up to several months, depending on individual health conditions and the graft material used.
How successful are dental bone grafts?
Dental bone grafts have a high success rate, particularly when performed by skilled specialists and followed by proper post-operative care and maintenance.
What can I expect after the procedure?
After the procedure, you may experience some swelling and discomfort, which typically subsides within a few days. We will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing.
How do I care for my mouth after a bone graft?
It’s important to keep the graft area clean, avoid disturbing the site, and follow a soft diet to prevent any undue pressure on the graft while it heals. Regular follow-up visits are crucial to monitor healing and progress.
Will my insurance cover dental bone grafting?
Coverage for dental bone grafting can vary depending on the reason for the procedure and your insurance policy. We can assist you with insurance claims and discuss financing options available.
How soon after a bone graft can I get a dental implant?
Typically, you need to wait several months after a bone graft before placing an implant to allow the graft material to integrate fully with the natural bone, ensuring a stable foundation for the implant.
