Safe Dental Bone Grafting at Clinique Dentaire 1935

Bone grafts are very useful in dentistry. They generally increase or preserve bone volume in the jawbone for the placement of one or more dental implants. Depending on the case, bone grafts can be simple or extensive. There are several scientifically proven surgical techniques to perform this type of operation, including alveolar filling, guided bone regeneration, sinus lift and PRF.

The importance of dental bone grafting

Dental implants are used to cosmetically and efficiently replace one or more missing teeth. However, the quality and quantity of bone at the implant site is critical to the success of the procedure. When necessary, the volume of bone in the jawbone can be increased so that one or more dental implants can eventually be placed. This is called a bone graft.

Bone grafting is often performed directly on a partially or completely toothless alveolar ridge. It can also be performed from the floor or side wall of a maxillary sinus. If the amount of bone missing is minimal, bone grafting can sometimes even be performed at the same time as the dental implant placement.

Bone grafting: features and process

Bone grafting may be required if there is clearly insufficient bone volume in the toothless area. The bone graft can be autogenous, i.e. it can be taken from another place in the mouth. The graft may also be synthetic or from an allogenic source.

Once the bone graft is completed, it usually takes a few months before healing is complete. When a sufficient volume of healthy bone is available, a dental implant can then be safely placed.

Bone grafting generally provides good three-dimensional stability over the long term. Before proceeding with the placement of the dental implant, it is important to adhere to the healing period, which can be a few months.

Maintenance advice and postoperative follow-up

During the healing period, prolonged pressure on the graft should be avoided. Dentures must be adjusted accordingly. Smoking should also be avoided during this period. Diabetic patients are at greater risk of failure during this surgical procedure. Meticulous oral hygiene is also very important.

Plan a dental bone graft with a reputable dental practice

In dentistry, bone grafts are delicate surgical procedures that require careful planning. Success depends in part on the quality and precision of the surgery. In this respect, it may be recommended to consult a dentist who specializes in periodontics or maxillofacial surgery. The general dentists at Clinique Dentaire 1935 can advise you, help you plan and refer you to the right specialist.

Our dedicated staff always strives to inform you in a simple and personalized manner about the best treatments available to you.
