For dental implants, you need to have sufficient jawbone for your oral surgeon to anchor the implants in place. If you do not have enough jawbone, you may require bone grafting, a common oral surgery procedure in which your oral surgeon regenerates bone to facilitate the placement of dental implants.
Bone grafting is an excellent option to restore the jaw bone after a tooth was removed or lost a long time ago and never replaced. Regardless of your circumstances, Ridge Oral Surgery in Basking Ridge, NJ, will keep you comfortable and safe while performing your bone graft, ultimately preparing you for successful dental implants and restoration.
Your journey will begin with a consultation, during which your oral surgeon will examine your teeth and gums, take x-rays, formulate a personalized treatment plan, and answer any questions. It is essential to keep in mind that every patient has unique needs, and our practice will always provide tailored treatment options that meet your oral health needs and goals.
For the bone graft itself, you will be provided with an appropriate level of sedation, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure and providing you with the bone support required for dental implants.
Before discharging you from our office, we will provide you with comprehensive aftercare instructions to take home. Adherence to these instructions is vital for expediting your healing process and optimizing the success of your implants.
Following your bone graft, the symptoms usually resolve on their own over a week, and you can manage them with over-the-counter remedies. We recommend limiting your diet to cool liquids and soft foods for the first couple days.
Bone loss is a common symptom of untreated tooth loss and dental disease, making dental restoration more challenging. The good news is that a bone graft can remedy this problem, making you a great candidate for a safe and successful dental implant procedure.
