The Normalcy Of  Dental Bone Grafting 

It is normal to need a dental bone grafting procedure before dental implants. Also, it is common to feel nervous about your dental procedures because anything done to your mouth can be something you have never done before. Our professionals here at Rockwall Oral Surgery will assure you that whatever procedure you need is safe and that you are in good hands. Bone grafting is necessary when the patient does not have enough healthy bones in their month to support the dental implants. This deficiency can be caused by: 

  • Development Defects
  • Gum Disease
  • Face Injury or Trauma
  • Empty Space After Teeth Were Removed

Understanding A Bone Grafting Procedure

A bone graft is a surgical procedure to rebuild or repair bones through the transplantation of bone tissue. By transporting healthy bone tissue, we can recreate bone and supporting tissues that are missing. 

Anyone who has lost a tooth might need bone grafting before it is possible for dental implants. Even if you come in for a dental implant the day after you lose a tooth, as a professional, we still have to go through a procedure to ensure we give you proper care. The socket where your tooth fell out could be infected, or the lost tooth could be the wrong size to support an immediate replacement. Bone grafts are not known to be painful, and you should not feel any pain as the graft heals.
