Scheduling Bone Grafting Before Dental Implant Placement

Before a patient has their dental implant placed, they will undergo an evaluation. This review is partly intended to find the ideal placement for an implant (or multiple implants). With that said, you are also being evaluated to make sure your placement will be successful. At our Santa Rosa/Rohnert Park, CA oral surgery clinic, we can determine if there are any issues that might impact your treatment and recovery. If you have left tooth loss unresolved for an extended period of time, or if you have relied on a prosthetic that lacked implant support, you may need help dealing with the problem of bone deterioration. To address this, we can recommend a jawbone grafting procedure or sinus lift to ensure that your smile restoration is successful!

A Delay In Dental Prosthetic Work Can Lead To Complications

Putting off the restoration of your smile can have an effect on your candidacy for dental implant placement. Losing teeth will lead to the loss of stimulation in your jawbone when you bite and chew. When this happens, the flow of nutrients to the bone is ceased, leading to its gradual deterioration over time. The loss of density can make it difficult to move forward with implant placement, because you may not be able to support their presence. With a sinus lift or jawbone grafting procedure, we can make sure that the bone is healthy and strong enough to support placement and your recovery.

Arranging Your Bone Grafting Procedure

To augment and restore the area where an implant will be placed, a bone graft is recommended. After a review of treatment approaches, we can select a means of restoring your jaw that will lead to the bone being strengthened, and also enjoying an increase in density that will give an implant more support. After this occurs, we can continue to evaluate you and ensure that the graft is successful, then make plans to have your implant or implants placed, meaning we can move forward with giving you back your full smile!
