What is Bone Grafting Surgery, and Why Do I Need It?
Dental implants offer amazing advantages over traditional tooth replacements such as bridges and dentures. With the help of Lifetime Teeth Today in Orlando, Florida, patients can experience dental implants that look and function just like their natural teeth and are designed to last a lifetime. Since implants blend in so well with the rest of the smile, patients, as well as their closest friends and family, often fail to notice the difference between dental implants and the other natural teeth.
When you arrive for your initial implant consultation, board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Ronald Trevisani will conduct an assessment to see whether your natural bone structure can support new dental implants. If not, bone grafting surgery may be required. Since your oral health is important to us, we are careful to explain the details of the bone grafting procedure and what is involved. Learn more about bone grafting surgery by reading below or by scheduling an implant consultation at our dental clinic.
What happens during bone grafting surgery?
Bone grafting is a minor procedure that can be completed at our local dental office in Orlando. To begin, Dr. Trevisani creates an incision in the gums to gain access to the bone, and then the chosen grafting material is added. That staff at Lifetime Teeth Today uses a special material called allograft bone to complete the surgery. Allograft bone is taken from a donor and professionally processed to make sure there is no disease present. The material is easily accessible and patients do not have to undergo a second surgery when used. Allograft bone is also clinically proven and effective with a strong track record for safety in patients.
Why is bone grafting surgery important?
If enough bone is lost due to gum disease or other dental complications, this can lead to other medical complications. Not only that, the facial features begin to droop and sag, causing patients to appear older than they are. With modern bone grafting techniques at Lifetime Teeth Today, the lost bone can be built up once again, strengthening your jawbone and benefitting your oral and overall health. Bone grafting surgery in Orlando also allows for more effective tooth replacement options such as permanent dental implants. If you require a bone grafting surgery to complete an implant, we encourage you to give us a call.
