Bone Grafting

Patients who have neglected to replace missing teeth risk weakening their jawbone. This condition, where the quality and quantity of bone matter is weak, becomes unsuitable for the placement of any dental implants. Dr. Okhovat uses modern technology to encourage new bone growth. This new bone allows us to eventually place implants.

The process can take up to a few months to complete. We will determine the exact location of where the grafts are needed and the amount of bone required. Once this is established, the treatment can begin. In a bone graft procedure, the surgeon can take a section of bone from another area of the patient’s body, or, more commonly, use a special bone grafting material, and graft it onto the patient’s jaw bone.

During surgery, the dentist will make a small incision to prepare the site for the new bone and then place the bone grafting material and close the incision. Over time, the new bone attaches itself to the existing bone. Once the bone fuses to the jawbone, the patient is ready for dental implants.

The patient will be given instructions to help with the healing process, such as eating certain foods and how to maintain the area clean from infection. Antibiotic mouthwashes and pain medication will be prescribed if needed.
