What is a bone graft?

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure to repair, or rebuild, bones through the transplantation of bone tissue. Bone grafts are sometimes required before you get dental implants or some other forms of restorative surgery. If your dentist finds that the jaw is too fine or too soft to successfully support an implant, a bone graft is used to insure the longevity and stability of the dental implant.

Who needs a bone graft?

Dental Implants

Dental implants get all their strength and support from the jaw bone. Once the implant is placed inside a bone, it starts fusing with the surrounding bone in a process known as osseointegration. This may take anywhere from three to six months, depending on the site of the implant, the condition of the jaw bone, and the overall patient health.

A healthy jaw bone with adequate height and thickness is absolutely necessary for a successful implant. Without an adequate amount of bone, a dental implant procedure is impossible.

Periodontal Disease

If periodontal disease is left untreated it can eat away at the bone leading to tooth loss.

How long is recovery?

After your grafting surgery has taken place, the initial recovery period will be about two weeks.

“I moved to Raleigh about one year ago due to work and decided to google a dental office near my apartment. I came upon Tryon Family Dentistry and because of the great reviews I decided to give it a shot. I’m so glad I went to this place because I LOVE it. Dr. Leo is great and is also very nice. Gloria usually does my teeth cleaning in which she is wonderful. She is nice, sweet and is always gentle. If you’re looking for a new dental office, give this place a chance and you will also come to love it!”

“Amazing office. The dentists here do great work. Replaced four of my front teeth with veneers and worked with me (for free) when the treatment plan didn’t go exactly as expected due to my chronic bruxism. They always explain what they’re doing, and why. I thoroughly trust this team with my dental care.”

The Latest in Aligner Technology

What Is Invisalign?

Instead of relying on metal brackets and wires to move teeth, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners custom designed for each patient’s individual treatment plan. The aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth so they don’t interfere with your normal activities or your speech. Because they are clear, they are hardly noticeable and provide the utmost discretion during treatment.
