Why choose us for Rohnert Park bone grafting
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.

Benefits of Bone Grafting
Strengthen Your Jawbone and Support Your Teeth
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.

What is the recovery process like after a bone graft?
- Taking prescribed pain medications and antibiotics as directed.
- Applying ice packs to reduce swelling.
- Eating soft foods and avoiding chewing on the side of the bone graft.
- 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.
