Benefits of Getting Bone Grafts

Posted on 2/20/2019 by Rodney Rastegar
Benefits of Getting Bone GraftsBefore getting any surgical procedure, a person must think about several things. They need to know what type of procedure it is and how it will impact them.

They also need to know why they need the surgery. In the case of a dental bone graft, it is a good idea to consider what the rewards of the procedure are. How will you benefit from undergoing this type of surgical procedure?

When to Get a Bone Graft

Many people have no need to ever get a dental bone graft. They do not suffer the loss of bone in their jaw that happens because of gum disease, infections or aging. They follow good oral hygiene habits and keep all their natural teeth. Other people are not so lucky.

They struggle with some aspects of their oral health and because of that have to consider a bone graft. The most common reason people get a bone graft is to help them with dental implants.

Bone Grafts and Implants

A dental implant involves drilling a hole in the bone tissue where a tooth used to be. A post is placed in the hole and bone tissue grows around it to hold it securely in place. A crown goes on top of the post to replace a missing tooth.

The problem that many people run into is that they do not have enough bone tissue to support the implant. If there is not enough bone, the implant cannot secure itself in place. The result will be a weak tooth that is subject to damage and failure.

The bone graft helps build up the bone tissues, so it is possible to put in the implant without the frisk of failure. Because it is a simple procedure, the benefit of knowing that the implant will work is very important.

Bone grafts carry very few risks and the benefit they offer to dental implants is important. People choose to get implants because they offer the best replacement for missing natural teeth and the bone grafts play a big role in making that happen.
