Bone grafting

Bone Grafting - Newmarket dentists by Woo Dental

Bone grafting is when a bone from the patient’s jaw is removed and transplanted to the affected jawbone. In addition to this, bone grafting allows the restoration of facial features due to a lost bone. In most cases, bone loss occurs when teeth are decayed and injured. Bone grafting establishes a solid base for dental implants. The dentist performs dental implant procedures as soon as the jaw heals.  

Here are the types of dental bone grafts :

  • Xenografts use bone from animals such as pigs, cows, or even corals. 
  • Allografts use a bone from a cadaver.
  • Autografts involve the use of your bone from your hip or jaw. 
  • Alloplasts use calcium phosphate for bone grafts. 

 

After the surgery, patients may experience discomforts such as swelling of the gums and minor bleeding. These side effects are common. There are dietary restrictions during the healing process. Patients are only allowed to eat soft foods during bone grafting.
