Bone Grafting - Building a Strong Foundation for Dental Restoration

At Warrington Dental PC, we perform bone grafting procedures to create a solid foundation for dental implants and other restorative treatments. This procedure is key for patients who have experienced bone loss in the jaw.

What is Bone Grafting and When is it Needed?

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that rebuilds or repairs bones through the transplantation of bone tissue. It’s necessary when a patient lacks sufficient natural bone in the jaw to support dental implants, often due to atrophy, gum disease, or tooth loss.

What are the Different Types of Bone Grafts?

The types of bone grafts include autografts (bone taken from the patient’s body), allografts (bone from a human donor), xenografts (bone from an animal source), and synthetic options. The choice depends on the specific case and patient needs.

What is the Process of Bone Grafting?

During the procedure, the dentist places the grafting material into the area where bone is missing. This material serves as a scaffold for new bone growth over time. The area is then closed and left to heal.

How Long Does It Take to Heal from Bone Grafting?

The healing process varies but generally takes several months. The new bone growth needs time to become strong enough to support a dental implant or other restorative structure.

What are the Benefits of Bone Grafting for Dental Implants?

Bone grafting allows patients who were previously not candidates for dental implants due to insufficient bone to become eligible. It helps ensure the long-term success and stability of the implant.
