Bone Grafting for Dental Implants Stamford

Bone Grafting Stamford Connecticut

Bone grafting can restore bone loss caused by periodontal disease. When a tooth that has been missing is not replaced, the bone in the immediate area begins to gradually resorb into the body. Why? When teeth are in position and typical forces are applied (chewing), bone and tissue are stimulated.

An additional consequence of deteriorating bone can be the collapse of facial structure. Those who lose their teeth without replacing them often begin to look older than their actual age, (as their jawbone begins to shrink).

What is Bone Grafting?

Bone Grafting is a process that assists your body in regenerating lost bone, (oral bone loss commonly results from the loss of natural teeth).

Over time, techniques and materials have steadily improved, limiting the need to use bone taken from another part of your body. Today, cutting-edge bone grafting materials such as RegenerOss™ Allograft Putty from BIOMET 3i™ may be used in place of your own bone, with no additional surgery required. During the healing process, the graft material (as intended) acts as a scaffold, ultimately being replaced by your own new bone.

Prior to your procedure, we will go over any pre-operative instructions you should follow, as well as any specifics about the surgical process. The following general steps may be included:

  1. A local anesthetic is applied to the grafting site.
  2. A small opening is made in the area where bone is needed.
  3. The grafting material is gently placed within the grafting site, alongside the existing bone, and stabilized with a protective covering.
  4. The area is sutured—stitches will either dissolve or be removed by your doctor in 7 to 10 days.
  5. Allow approximately 3 to 6 months for healing.

About Bone Loss...

If you have missing teeth, you could easily be at increased risk for oral bone loss.

What Is Oral Bone Loss?

Oral bone loss can result from trauma, tumors, or more commonly, loss of natural teeth. A diagnosis of oral bone loss indicates that a person no longer has bone where nature intended it to be.

What Are The Consequences Of Oral Bone Loss?

Oral bone loss compromises healthy teeth and can cause a loss of facial contours. On the flip-side, preserving oral bone can help maintain your natural facial appearance. Those who have significant oral bone loss face the possibility of losing additional teeth, and are at higher risk of injury resulting from jaw fractures.

How Can I Benefit From Oral Bone Treatment?

Treating areas with existing bone loss, as well as areas at risk for accelerated bone loss, e.g., places where teeth have been lost, may prevent additional tooth and oral bone loss. Because the upper and lower jaw bone create the shape of the lower third of your face, preserving or rebuilding oral bone can help to preserve your appearance throughout time.

If you have experienced bone loss anywhere in your upper or lower jaw, we may recommend treatment that can significantly slow or even repair the oral bone loss. We have a wide variety of options available to patients who suffer from bone loss.
