What Is Bone Grafting?
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that promotes the growth of new bone in your jaw. This is crucial when there’s insufficient bone volume or density, which is often a prerequisite for procedures such as dental implants. Dr. Nakatani, with his years of specialized training and expertise, uses the most advanced techniques to ensure the procedure’s success, fostering your oral health and preparing your jaw for future dental treatments.
Why Is Bone Grafting Necessary?
Tooth loss and gum disease can lead to a reduction in your jawbone’s volume and density. This not only affects your oral health but also your facial structure and appearance. With a bone graft, we can stimulate new bone growth, restore the jaw’s structure, and provide a strong foundation for dental implants or other restorative procedures. In doing so, we help rebuild not just your smile but your overall confidence and quality of life.
Our Bone Grafting Procedure
The bone grafting procedure performed by Dr. Nakatani is designed with the utmost patient comfort and safety in mind. Under local anesthesia or sedation, the process involves placing grafting material, which can be from your own body, a donor, or synthetic sources, in the needed areas. Over time, this material will integrate with your existing bone, fostering new bone growth.
What To Expect During Recovery?
Following the bone grafting procedure, we provide comprehensive post-operative care instructions to ensure optimal healing and recovery. While some discomfort may be expected, it is generally manageable with over-the-counter pain medication. It typically takes several months for the bone graft to fully integrate and stimulate new bone growth. Rest assured, we will monitor your progress closely and prepare you for the next steps of your dental treatment plan.
