If you are missing a tooth due to an injury or even a severe oral condition such as gum disease, you may yearn for a beautiful smile that allows you to laugh, eat, and smile without hesitation. Dental implants make this a possibility. This procedure involves permanently inserting a replacement tooth in your mouth using a titanium fixture to hold in the new crown (tooth replacement). While there are many aspects to ensure the success of this process, it is vital that you have plenty of healthy bone, and in some cases, a bone graft is needed to make this happen.
A bone graft requires a surgeon to regenerate the amount of bone in your jaw so there is enough strength to support the implant. The new bone will grow on your current bone and create a stronger and thicker surface. It will help repair any bone loss that you’ve previously experienced and keep your entire mouth healthy and strong. Bone graft procedures can vary depending on how large of a graft is needed and the location of the procedure inside your mouth. Your surgeon can explain the exact process and expectations for your specific condition.
In addition to providing strong bone to support your dental implants, a bone graft can improve the health of your teeth. It can keep your teeth strong and decrease the risk of tooth decay. It can also strengthen the roots of your teeth and even alleviate tooth sensitivity, which can cause extreme pain and discomfort.
