Why Would You Need a Bone Graft in Your Jaw ?

Why Would You Need a Bone Graft in Your Jaw

Delaying tooth replacement after tooth loss can lead to jawbone resorption, as the natural stimulation from tooth roots is absent, causing deterioration in the jawbone and undesired changes in facial appearance, complicating dental restoration. Bone grafting presents a solution, stimulating bone regeneration where needed. If you’re facing such issues, visit Topeka Oral Surgery for expert oral surgery solutions to restore your dental health and facial aesthetics. About >40% of the alveolar bone around a tooth that was extracted may resorb overtime, which can be reduced by placing a bone graft into the extraction socket immediately after the tooth is removed.

Why Consider Bone Grafting?

A primary reason for opting for bone grafting is to ensure sufficient jawbone support for dental implants. These implants, titanium posts surgically embedded into the jaw, fuse with the bone via osseointegration, providing a stable foundation for artificial teeth. This process typically takes 3 months.

Ultimately, the goal is to preserve the bone after the extraction until the patient is ready for an implant.  It is much more cost effective to do the bone graft at time of extraction than months later.

Consult Topeka Oral Surgery for Bone Grafting

Embarking on a bone grafting journey is pivotal for ensuring eligibility for successful dental implant placement, thereby fostering a complete, healthy, and confident smile. To assess candidacy for bone grafting and explore personalized solutions, schedule a consultation with Topeka Oral Surgery today.  Sometimes a large bony graft is necessary prior to implant placement.
