Strengthening the Foundation with Bone Grafting
At Rosemont Dental Center, we understand the importance of a strong foundation for optimal dental health. Bone grafting is a procedure designed to enhance the jawbone, making it suitable for dental implants and other restorative treatments.
Why is Bone Grafting Necessary?
Bone loss in the jaw can occur due to various reasons, including periodontal disease, tooth extractions, or trauma. A weakened jawbone may not support dental implants effectively. Bone grafting helps in restoring the bone's strength and volume.
How is the Bone Grafting Procedure Performed?
During bone grafting, bone material (either from the patient, a donor, or synthetic sources) is placed in the area of deficiency. Over time, this graft helps in regenerating lost bone and fusing with the existing bone.
What Can I Expect After a Bone Graft?
Post-procedure, some discomfort is normal, but it's generally manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers and prescribed medications. Proper aftercare ensures successful graft integration and healing.
