Bone Grafting & GBR

Teeth can be lost for various reasons, including disease, trauma, or other factors. However, tooth loss can bring about a range of issues, one of which is bone resorption. Studies show that over half of individuals who lose a tooth may experience a loss of the underlying crestal bone within a few years, which can pose challenges for receiving dental implants.

At BrightCraft Dental and Laser, we provide effective solutions for bone restoration, including bone grafting and Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR). These procedures are designed to rebuild and restore bone in your mouth, ensuring that you are well-prepared for successful dental implant placement.

What is Bone Grafting and Guided Bone Regeneration?

As in all cases of dental intervention, the first step is consulting a dentist.

✓ Bone grafting is a surgical procedure used when there is insufficient natural bone in your mouth to support a dental implant.

✓ During this procedure, missing bone is replaced with a material known as a bone graft, which not only fills the gap but also stimulates new bone growth.
✓ Over time, the newly generated bone strengthens the grafted area, creating a bridge between the existing bone and the graft.

✓ Ultimately, the newly formed bone replaces a substantial portion of the graft material, resulting in a fully integrated region of new bone.

Why do I need bone grafting and GBR?

When you lose a tooth, the inevitable loss of bone volume begins, and if left unaddressed, it can lead to the collapse of the bone structure, resulting in a sunken appearance along the jaw and cheeks. This absence of bone is often referred to as a “bony defect.”

In the event of a tooth extraction and when you’re considering a dental implant, our experienced dentists at BrightCraft Dental and Laser may recommend bone grafting. This procedure ensures that your mouth has sufficient bone support, allowing for the regeneration of the necessary bone structure, which serves as a solid foundation for dental implants.

Are bone grafts and GBR painful?

Bone grafts and GBR procedures are virtually painless, typically carried out under local anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation, and occasionally, general anesthesia. As with many dental procedures, you may experience mild discomfort and some swelling, but rest assured, we will provide a prescription for pain relief to alleviate any discomfort you may encounter.

Types of bone grafting we offer at BrightCraft Dental and Laser

At BrightCraft Dental and Laser, we offer a range of bone grafting procedures tailored to your specific needs:

✓ Socket Preservation and Atraumatic Tooth Extraction: Minimizes disruption to surrounding bone, with same-day socket preservation for maintaining bone volume.

✓ Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR): Involves a membrane to promote new bone growth, either staged or same-day with implant placement.

✓ Maxillary Sinus Augmentation (Sinus Lift): Lifts and secures the sinus for upper back teeth implant placement.

✓ Ridge Split Bone Grafting: Expands narrow ridges for proper implant placement.

✓ Onlay Cortical Bone Graft: Uses a small block of bone for severe bone loss, providing necessary support for future implants.

How long after the bone graft can I get an implant?

Ensuring proper healing is a crucial step in the dental implant process. While the exact healing duration can vary from person to person, the average healing period typically extends for approximately three months or longer. During this time, your mouth undergoes a natural regenerative process, allowing the site to heal and stabilize effectively. This period of healing is essential to ensure the long-term success of the implant procedure. Once your dental professionals confirm that your site has healed properly and is ready to support the implant, you can proceed with the placement of your dental implants, ensuring the best possible outcome for your oral health and smile restoration.
