What You Need to Know about Bone Grafting
The thought of bone grafting may seem like a scary prospect at first. But the fact is that bone grafting is done quite often for dental patients that are experiencing a certain level of bone loss in their jaws. In fact, if it weren’t for bone grafting technology, some patients would never have the opportunity to have dental implants, and implants are very much like getting a brand new set of teeth! Without bone grafting, these patients would need to either live without teeth or wear dentures. Thanks to bone grafting, patients experiencing bone loss in their jaws have another alternative.
Most of us know that every tooth has roots that hold it firmly in place. These roots are surrounded by bone. In the case of people who are missing teeth, it’s quite common for the bone to begin to erode because it doesn’t have a tooth to support. Gradually, the bone forms a divot in the jaw bone. The bone grafting procedure is used to build up the jawbone in order to accommodate a dental implant or other restorative dental appliance. Many times, bone from the patient is used.
A bone graft may sound frightening, but it’s actually a relatively common procedure that gives many patients the chance to have new “teeth” that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to enjoy.
