Why choose us for Rohnert Park bone grafting

Bone grafts are most commonly part of the preparation for dental implants. In this case, they help build your jawbone back by providing the matrix for your body to create new bone, ensuring it can support an implant. Bone grafts can be an essential treatment to increase the long-term success of your dental implant.

You may also need a bone graft before a different type of oral surgery. Regardless of the situation, bone grafts restore any bone loss in your jaw.

We suggest bone grafting typically only if your natural bones are not strong or healthy enough to support your natural teeth or your new dental implants. This lack of strength can come from various causes, such as gum disease, development defects, a face injury from trauma, normal bone degeneration, or even an empty space after a tooth extraction. Without a bone graft, it may be impossible to place an implant in your mouth.

Bone grafts are such an important part of many dental implants because of the way they encourage bone to grow. Dental implants need to integrate with your bones. We cannot place an implant if there is no bone. The bone graft will typically take place several months before your dental implants.

There are several types of bone grafts, which vary based upon where the graft is placed and the goal of the graft. Some may also have different sources for the graft. Some use bone from your jaw, while others use human donor bones or other materials.  Our dentist will suggest a type of bone graft based on your particular situation and needs.

Strengthen Your Jawbone and Support Your Teeth

You don’t have to worry about weak jawbones that may not be able to support your implants. Bone grafts provide the strength that you need and encourage natural bone growth. They encourage your bones to integrate with the implants, providing the security and strength your new implants need.

There is also no concern about your facial features sagging, at least due to bone strength. A bone graft, even without dental implants, can help your bones stay strong. This allows for future dental procedures with minimal concern about bone strength.

The bone graft surgery is quick, getting you on the road to healing in a few hours or less. It will then be just a few months until your now-healthy jawbones are ready for your dental implants.

FAQ

What is a bone graft?

A bone graft is a dental procedure where your dentist or oral surgeon adds bone or bone-like material to your jawbone. This helps strengthen the jawbone and create a solid foundation for dental implants or other dental restorations. Bone grafts can be made from your own bone, donated human bone, animal bone, or synthetic materials.

Why would I need a bone graft?

You might need a bone graft if you have experienced bone loss in your jaw due to tooth extractions, gum disease, or facial injuries. A strong jawbone is necessary to support dental implants, so a bone graft may be recommended if you’re planning to get dental implants but have insufficient bone in your jaw. Bone grafts can also help preserve your jawbone’s shape and structure after a tooth extraction, preventing further bone loss and facial changes.

How is a bone graft procedure done?

During a bone graft procedure, your dentist or oral surgeon will numb the area with local anesthesia, or they may use sedation or general anesthesia if you’re more comfortable with that. They will then make a small incision in your gum to access the jawbone. The bone graft material is placed in the area where additional bone is needed and secured in place, sometimes using a special membrane or screws. Finally, the incision is closed with stitches.

What is the recovery process like after a bone graft?

After a bone graft, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for a few days. Your dentist or oral surgeon will provide you with instructions for at-home care, which may include:

  1. Taking prescribed pain medications and antibiotics as directed.
  2. Applying ice packs to reduce swelling.
  3. Eating soft foods and avoiding chewing on the side of the bone graft.
  4. Rinsing your mouth gently with warm saltwater after 24 hours to help keep the area clean.

It usually takes several months for the bone graft to fully integrate with your jawbone. Once the graft has healed and your jawbone is strong enough, your dentist can proceed with dental implant placement or other dental restorations.

How much does a bone graft cost?

The cost of a bone graft can vary depending on the type of bone graft material used, the size and location of the graft, and where you live. On average, a bone graft can cost between $300 and $3,000. Many dental insurance plans cover at least part of the cost of bone grafts, especially when they’re needed for dental implants. Be sure to check with your insurance provider and dentist to find out how much your treatment will cost.
