Dental bone grafts: restoring jaw health.

Dental bone grafting is a transformative procedure. It restores or regenerates lost jawbone due to various factors like tooth extraction, trauma or gum disease. Honce Dentistry understands the importance of a healthy jawbone—not just for aesthetics but also for long-term dental health and functionality. Here you’ll find comprehensive solutions and advanced techniques to address your specific needs.

When you require dental bone grafting
Dental bone grafting becomes necessary when the jawbone lacks the necessary quality or quantity of bone to support dental implants or maintain facial aesthetics. It’s often recommended in cases where:

  • Tooth extraction has led to bone loss, compromising the stability of adjacent teeth and the overall structure of the jaw.
  • Periodontal disease has caused significant bone loss, leading to gum recession and tooth mobility.
  • Trauma or injury has resulted in damage to the jawbone, affecting oral function and aesthetics.

Tailored techniques for optimal results
Several methods of dental bone grafting are designed to meet the specific needs of patients and the desired outcome. Common types of grafts include:

  • Dentin tooth grafts. If you require a tooth extraction, this same tooth can be chemically treated and mechanically particulated, enabling it to be placed back into the jaw as one of the most optimal bone graft materials available.  It carries all of the body’s proteins that elicit excellent bone regeneration capabilities.
  • Autogenous bone grafts use your own bone tissue, typically from areas such as the chin, jaw, lower leg bone or hip. These bone grafts offer excellent compatibility and promote natural bone regeneration.
  • Allografts use processed and sterilized bone from a donor, offering a viable option to autogenous bone grafts. Allograft bone, or donor bone, adds volume and density to the jaw bone.
  • Xenografts use bovine or porcine bone treated to remove organic components, providing a scaffold for new bone growth.
  • Synthetic bone grafts consist of biocompatible materials that either stimulate new bone formation or mimic natural bone. They are ideal for situations where harvesting a patient’s own bone is not feasible.

Benefits of dental bone grafting
The many benefits to dental bone grafts include:

  • Enhanced facial contours. Restored bone volume provides a foundation for implants and improves facial aesthetics.
  • Improved oral function. A strong jawbone supports natural function and facilitates comfortable chewing and speaking.
  • Long-term success. Adequate bone volume ensures the longevity of dental implants and prosthetics.
  • Preserving oral health. Bone grafts prevent further deterioration of the jawbone, promoting long-term dental health.
