What is bone grafting for dental implants?

A bone graft adds density and volume to areas of your jaw suffering from bone loss. We can use material for your bone graft from your body, or we may use donor tissue or synthetic tissue.


The process for Bone Grafting for Dental Implants


We can use local anesthesia, oral sedatives, or IV anesthesia for your bone graft surgery to ensure that you’re comfortable. Ventura bone grafting for dental implants requires us to make an incision in your gums so we can access your bone. We then add the grafting material to your bone and close the incision. The grafting material acts as a scaffold for your body to deposit its new bone cells. Your body eventually absorbs the grafting material and replaces it with your own bone.


What to expect after Bone Grafting for Dental Implants


After bone grafting for dental implants in Ventura, it takes four to six months for your mouth to heal. Once you’re healed and you have higher levels of bone in your jaw, we can place your dental implants. It’s normal to experience soreness, bruising, and swelling after your surgery. Icing your mouth and using pain medication should reduce your discomfort. If we use stitches during the procedure, we’ll remove them two weeks a week or so after your surgery.

What are the benefits of bone grafting for dental implants?

Low levels of bone mass in your jawbone put your teeth at risk. Insufficient bone density can cause your teeth to loosen or eventually fall out. You’re also more likely to suffer from gum disease and gum recession that puts your teeth at a higher risk of decay. Ventura bone grafting for dental implants restores your bone mass to the necessary levels for optimal oral health. Sufficient amounts of jawbone will also make you eligible for dental implants. Dental implants prevent additional bone loss from occurring and ensure that your other teeth don’t shift positions.

How does bone grafting for dental implants improve your oral health?

Bone grafting for dental implants in Ventura is associated with numerous benefits:


You can receive dental implant therapy


Missing teeth negatively affect your oral health and impact your appearance and self-esteem. Restoring your bone mass helps make you a candidate for dental implants so you can restore your smile and regain your confidence.


You’ll improve your overall appearance


Your jawbone supports many of your facial bones and structures. If your jawbone deteriorates, this can cause the rest of your face to sag. Bone grafting for dental implants in Ventura gives your jawbone the mass it needs to help your face look its best.


You’ll prevent future dental issues


Jawbone loss puts you at risk for a host of dental problems, including tooth loss, tooth decay, and gum disease. By addressing this risk factor, you decrease your chances of experiencing future dental issues.
