Advanced Dental Bone Grafting at ASA Dental

Missing teeth can impact your life, affecting appearance and confidence. At Advanced Surgical Associates in Tewksbury, MA or Portsmouth, NH, we offer cutting-edge dental bone grafting, including specialized block grafting, to rebuild your smile and restore confidence.

If you’re missing teeth with inadequate bone density for implants, dental bone grafting is the solution. This surgical procedure rebuilds jawbone strength, creating a robust foundation for dental implants,. We specialize in block grafting, using larger, solid bone blocks, either autograft or allograft, for significant bone loss cases.

Advantages of Dental Bone Grafting

Dental bone grafting seamlessly integrates dental implants, mirroring the appearance and function of natural teeth. This restoration not only enhances aesthetics but also boosts confidence, enabling pain-free indulgence in favorite foods.

Addressing missing teeth through dental bone grafting prevents potential issues like bone loss, shifting teeth, and gum disease. By promoting overall oral health, our procedures contribute to a lasting and positive impact.

After tooth loss, jawbone shrinkage is a common consequence. Our bone grafting techniques actively prevent this deterioration, preserving the natural shape and structure of the jaw.

Successful dental implants rely on robust bone support. Advanced Surgical Associates’ advanced grafting techniques, including block grafts, provide the necessary foundation for the long-term success of your dental implants, ensuring stability and functionality.

Best Time for Dental Bone Grafting

Deciding the optimal time for dental bone grafting is crucial for a successful procedure. The ideal timing often depends on various factors, such as the extent of bone loss, the number of missing teeth, and the overall oral health of the patient.

In some cases, bone grafting can be performed simultaneously with the placement of dental implants. This approach reduces the overall treatment time, offering a more convenient and efficient solution.

For patients planning on getting dental implants in the future, bone grafting is often recommended well in advance. This proactive approach allows sufficient time for the grafted bone to integrate and provide a stable foundation for the implants.

Bone grafting immediately after a tooth extraction helps prevent rapid bone loss, preserving the jaw’s natural structure. This proactive measure sets the stage for future dental implants or other restorative procedures.

Determining the best time for dental bone grafting is a collaborative decision made between the patient and the oral surgeon, considering individual circumstances and treatment goals.

What to Expect After Dental Bone Grafting

Understanding what to expect after a dental bone grafting procedure is essential for a smooth recovery and successful outcomes.

Initial Discomfort: It’s normal to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the days following the procedure. Pain management prescribed by your oral surgeon can help alleviate any discomfort.

Healing Time: The initial healing period varies but typically ranges from a few days to a couple of weeks. During this time, it’s essential to follow post-operative care instructions, including dietary restrictions and proper oral hygiene practices.

Bone Integration: Over the next several months, the grafted bone integrates with the existing jawbone, strengthening the foundation for future dental implants or other restorative treatments.

Follow-up Appointments: Regular follow-up appointments with your oral surgeon are crucial to monitor the healing process. These appointments allow adjustments to the treatment plan if necessary and ensure the long-term success of the bone graft.

Resuming Normal Activities: As healing progresses, patients can gradually resume normal activities. The timeline for returning to a regular diet and activities will be provided by the oral surgeon based on individual recovery progress.

By knowing what to expect after dental bone grafting, patients can approach the recovery period with confidence, contributing to a positive overall experience and successful treatment outcomes.
