Ottawa’s Bone Grafting Specialists

Bone Grafting

Over the years, some patients experience loss of jawbone. The loss of jawbone can occur for a variety of reasons. Depending on how much jaw bone has been lost, the poor quality and quantity of the remaining bone might not be suitable for dental implants. Bone grafting is a process which can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure. This allows for patients who were previously ineligible to become candidates for dental implants.

What causes jaw bone loss?

  • Missing teeth which are left unreplaced
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Growing deformity
  • Infections damaging the bone
  • Trauma to the jaw and mouth
  • Removal of a tumor and a portion of
    the jaw

Advantages of Bone Grafts

  • Allows for patients to become
    candidates for dental implants
  • Improves the appearance of the
    jawbone and face
  • Restores the jawbone’s strength,
    making eating easier

Who is eligible for bone grafting?

  • Patients suffering from bone loss in
    the jaw
  • Patients in good overall health
  • Patients who do not have
    periodontal disease

The Bone Grafting Process

While bone grafting is a complex process which can greatly improve your oral health, the whole procedure is often completed in just about an hour. Sedation options will be discussed with you prior to the surgery. During your bone grafting treatment, you will receive anesthesia and a small incision is made so our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons can access the area of the deficient jawbone. The bone graft is then placed on the jawbone, and may be secured with small screws. Once the bone graft is in place, the surgical site is closed with sutures

Bone Grafting Recovery

Typically, post-operative pain and discomfort is mild and lasts for a week or two. While everybody’s experiences are different, many have described the pain as being similar to that experienced after a tooth removal. Anti-inflammatory drugs taken under instructions of your Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon will help manage the discomfort. After your post-operative comfort dissipates, your body will continue the healing process for another three to four months for a complete recovery. Once your jawbone has completely healed, dental implant surgery can begin. If you beleive that you are a candidate for bone grafting, fill out the contact form below and get in touch with us.
