Here are some of the more common issues that we address at Aspen Surgical Arts.

Do I need a bone graft?

Preoperative Appointment

The Procedure

Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies or is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants.

 

Today, we have the ability to grow bone where needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.

 

The bottom line is that long term stability of a dental implant and the surrounding soft tissue depends on the availability and health of the jaw bone surrounding the implant. If there is inadequate amount of bone, the implant may not heal well. This could result in an implant that has short term acceptable results, but over time leads to issues with bone loss or gum recession.

  • At your preoperative appointment radiographs (xrays) and various dental measurements will be taken to make sure you have adequate about of supporting bone for an implant.
  • If you have areas where the bone is thin or unsupportive of long term implant and gum tissue health, we will discuss various grafting options.
  • Many times the implant placement and the bone graft can be done at the same time.
  • In places of extensive bone loss, the area will have to be grafted first and then the implant can be placed after the bone graft heals.

CONSULTATION AND EXAM - Comprehensive examination and health history will be reviewed in order to help you determine the optimal treatment. X-rays to measure the bone will be taken and models may also be taken to aid in proper implant placement and bone grafting needs. We will discuss your treatment options. Our office staff will help you with your insurance and payment options.

 

SURGICAL APPOINTMENT:  Invasiveness of bone grafting depends on how much bone is needed. Bone grafting can be done under local anesthesia alone or with sedation for your added comfort.
