Who Is A Candidate for Bone Grafting?

Posted on 11/15/2023 by Weo Admin

It helps address these concerns by augmenting or regenerating bone tissue in the affected area. It provides a solid foundation for dental implants and enhances the stability and strength of the jawbone. Evaluating the specific condition and needs of each patient is essential. This helps to determine if bone grafting is a suitable solution and to create an appropriate treatment plan. The following are people who may benefit from a bone graft.

Tooth Loss

The adjacent bone may gradually degrade when a tooth is extracted or lost. A bone graft can be performed to prevent further bone loss and preserve the bone structure. This procedure involves adding graft material to the area, which promotes new bone growth and provides improved support for future dental treatments.

Bone Loss

In cases where there is insufficient bone density in the jaw, it may be essential to consider a bone graft procedure. This surgical intervention aims to enhance the bone structure, providing a stronger and more stable foundation for dental implants or other restorative treatments. By augmenting the bone density through a bone graft, optimal conditions can be created for the successful placement and long-term stability of dental implants.

Gum Disease

Severe gum disease can result in the loss of bone around the teeth. A bone graft may be recommended to address this issue and promote improved oral health and tooth stability. This procedure aims to regenerate and restore the lost bone, helping to restore the supporting structures around the teeth.

Implants for Missing Teeth

Dental bone grafts are necessary for individuals undergoing implant placement to substitute a missing tooth. Bone grafting is frequently performed to ensure a secure and stable foundation for the implant. The procedure helps create a stronger base for the implant to integrate. Once the implant is in place, it is topped with a crown that matches the surrounding teeth, completing the restoration process.
